Clue for next month:
Sew Explicit Eve dress pattern 63” hip
Beverly: This week I made THREE garments that qualify for #pfLegCages, all of them using the True Bias Emerson pattern. The first are using the mid-rise view, shorts length, size 14, no adjustments. They are pretty short! Also the rise is a bit low. I used stretch chambray that I bought for pennies ages ago. The second pair I made with the wild canvas I bought in New York. I added an inch to the rise and an additional inch to the length and I really like this fit. I have added a photo of Jim wearing them in the show notes – should be on my IG feed by the time this airs. Finally, I made a pair of the high rise view – which is another inch longer in the rise in a size 16, using black brussels washer linen. I think these will be in heavy rotation all summer! One thing I would change about the pattern. The waistband is designed for 1.25” elastic. Next time I will add some room in it to make it at least 1.5 inches. I don’t have 1.25, not going to go buy it and not going to trim my 1.5. I actually prefer a 2” waistband so maybe I’ll do that and alter the rise again.
Lore Piar Senna Knit dress – Maximum 75” hip. The SENNA Knit Dress is a Y2K vibes long dress with long sleeves, an angled empire waist, and a plunging neckline with ruched bust details.
It has a back center seam for a closer fit to the body, side slits for movement, and a bit of leg show.
Sew Liberated Bedrock Tee pattern – Max 61” hip. Just slide the size chart on over. Just what the sewing community needs! Another indie tee shirt pattern. Haha! Fitted in the places you like, loose in the places you prefer a little extra room, Bedrock will be your new favorite tee. With two silhouettes, as well as tank, short sleeve, and long sleeve options, Bedrock is a quick sew and builds a strong foundation for your wardrobe.
