It took me looong to publish these, I think we photographed in September, lol it was so long that I forgot how long time ago I’ve sewn this top)) But jeans I remember! I finished them in July))! I was thinking that summer was going to be cold as usual, so I prepared myself for it with thick denim.. But nooo, it was so hot that I got a chance to wear them only in September..
I bought that pattern when it was released)) Then I had no idea if I can sew it, but I already knew how much I wanted boyfriend jeans that fit and I’ve read enough reviews about Closet Case Files’ Ginger jeans to know that Heather’s patterns are exactly what I’m looking for!
No alterations, interfaced waistband. Everything was easy, except top stitching thread! My machine hates it…or I don’t know how to make her stitch well…anyway I didn’t make more only because of it..I think I’ll stop waiting for a miracle and will use normal thread for my next pair..)
I use Husqvarna H Class E10 – maybe you have the same and made her stitch that thick thread will?
Since July I lost a lil of weight and now jeans do not look like I want them too…I do hope to make new ones soon)
Oh! Almost forgot) I didn’t hem them, I jsut cut, removed several threads and put it to washing machine))
New Look 6206
Reading other reviews of this halter dress I saw that there is something wrong with the pattern..although it was a little late, I already cut it out and saw that there is size issue, and I would say instruction’s issue too.
I cut size 16. After trying it out I needed to remove about 9 cm from both sides, the back was too loose and also I needed to unpick the elastic from the back. Instructions don’t tell you to pull elastic while you sew. But I think you should)) I did and it started looking much better afterwards!))
Apart from all those issues I love the look and I do want to make more of these, halter tops and halter dresses too)
