He has been wearing pants, a vest and top that I made for my former Unidoll Anthony from an Adams-Harris pattern called Hollywood. The fit is a little loose on Quartz, so I know I can reuse the same pattern or others designed for Unidoll boys. This time I am making the short-sleeve tee and jeans from A-H's Risky Business! pattern. The pattern includes a long-sleeve overshirt, but I won't have time to sew it before Saturday. As it is, I didn't even finish the jeans today, only the tee shirt, which means I'll be burning the midnight oil every night this week trying to get them done.
|The denim consists of alternating gray and white stripes; however,|
the small photo above creates an optical illusion of wide stripes.
See the waistband (the curved piece near the sleeve) for an
accurate rendition of the stripes.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Pattern Designers, please identify inseams and side seams, or back seams and front seams. When I am looking at a deconstructed pants leg, I am totally disoriented as to which side is which. Perhaps I am spacially challenged, but I doubt I'm the only one. Also, please check your sewing instructions to ensure they make sense. Don't just tell me I need a scrap of fabric for the collar. Scraps come in all shapes and sizes. How long a scrap? How wide? If I knew instinctively how to do this, I'd be drafting my own patterns instead of buying them. Just saying.
