A tester call for a beautiful tailored style shorts pattern for stretch wovens from one of my favourite designers? count me in! I love the style of these and because they were from Wardrobe by Me, I knew the pattern was going to be perfectly finished too, and I wasn't wrong, the inside is super pretty! Here's my first pair, there were a few adjustments to the final pattern after these were made which I'll mention a little later.
When I set about my challenge of making ALL my clothes this year, jeans are one of the few garments I was hoping I wouldn't need. They always looked so complicated and difficult to make that I never thought I'd be able to! Nevertheless, I bought some stretch denim from a shop in King's Lynn a few months ago "just incase". Then, I saw a tester call for some lovely flared jeans and without even thinking filled in the form and applied!
A few days later, I had an email to ask me if I still wanted to test the pattern, I hesitated for a few minutes before excitedly and nervously accepting and less than a week later, amongst normal Mummy of two life, here are my jeans!
