|Whoa, what, is something wrong with these? Why are they mathom?|
Having drafted my own perfect pants pattern (and failed to do anything else with it since; see first sentence of this post for reasons), I no longer need my copies of Colette Patterns' Clovers or Sewaholic Patterns' Thurlows. If you've a hankering to apply some of my pants-making tips, but haven't found a pattern that works for you yet, you may want to give these two indie patterns a try! Both patterns have been unfolded at some point, and the instructions flipped through, but they are still uncut.
|Caveat emptor: both of these patterns are pretty hippy, so if you're not very pear-shaped you may need to do some adjusting.|
If you want to enter this giveaway, leave a comment below telling me your best sewing-related pickup line...or just tell me what kind of pants you'd like to make (actually, I'm just curious about whether there are any sewing-related pickup lines. My students have been talking about pickup lines and while there seem to be plenty of biology ones, but I've yet to come across a really good chemistry one. Wondering about sewing ones seems to be the next logical step). I'll close the giveaway and choose a winner on Sunday night, 11:59 PST.
*Same thing goes for the Catching Fire movie...when Hunger Games was released, I went all out with my friends and did a costumed photoshoot, but this year, pffft. Even though the costumes were arguably better this time around, and boy would I love to make a Mockingjay dress, but there's just no time!
May the odds be ever in your favor!
