It's imposible to explain all I owe to sewing and to be grateful for, because it would be too long to tell. Since I was a child I've been thinking in garments almost every day, if I liked something, I immediatly imagine how to adapt it to my style or my body shape. Sewing has helped me to take this ideas out of my head, and although I've not been very active, to know that at a given moment I can create something makes me happy. Just thinking about sewing makes me happy, I've sewn more mentally that I've really done. But this is about to change. And I'm grateful for this change. Now I have a place where I can sew, and I love it. I'm sew grateful to my family for their support in my love to sewing, my sisters who wear my garments and inspire me to keep on working and make sewing my job. I would love to but I have a lot to learn. I'm grateful to the world of sewing blogs, full of talented and creative people, that inspire me and make me want continue with my sewing. Since I'm in this blog world I've only heard kind words. And grateful to the Sew Grateful which has permited to know a lot more, to make my first giveaway and tutorial, two things I didn't think I could do and it's been fun. Thanks Debi.
Estos pantalones son más un experimento que algo que quisiera hacer realmente. Quería utilizar los restos de la tela que utilicé para hacer las vistas de mi Petite coat y se me ocurrió hacer unos shorts. Quería hacer algo sencillo pero que no resultara aburrido así que decidí hacer unas ondas y coser unos botones para animarlos, por lo demás son unos pantalones normales y corrientes, nada especial en cuanto a patronaje. Están forrados con los restos del forro que usé en el Petite Coat (hay que aprovechar todo). Es la primera vez que forro unos pantalones y aunque miré en mis libros "Burdastyle: Costura Fácil" y el "Manual Completo de costura", al final lo hice un poco a mi manera. La próxima vez que los haga (tengo un encargo, bueno, mi hermana quiere unos) buscaré otra forma, con esta no me ha quedado un acabado muy limpio. Todo lo que he utilizado lo tenía ya, incluso la cremallera en el mismo color de la tela, lo único que tuve que comprar fueron los botones, así que podría decir que solo me han costado 8 euros. Creo que han quedado muy monos.
This pants are more an experiment than something I really wanted to make. I wanted to use the leftovers of the fabric I used to make the facing on my Petite coat, so I made these shorts. I wanted to make something simple but not boring, so I decided to make some scallops and sewed some buttons to cheer them up, apart from that, they are ordinary pants, nothing especial as for patternmaking. They're lined with the leftovers of the lining of the Petite coat (you have to make most of everything). This is the first time I line a pair of pants and although I searched in my books "Burda: Costura Fácil" and "Complete guide of sewing", I made it my own at the end. Next time I make them, (I have an order, well, my sister wants a pair) I have to find another way, because this finishing is not very neat. I had everything I used in my stash, even the zipper in the same colour than the fabric, I only bought the buttons, so I could say they've costed me only 8 euros. I think they're very cute.
