2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

March 27, 2017

GINGER JEANS: INCH BY INCH...

...When I started on the Ginger Jeans the first week of March I NEVER thought it would have taken an entire month for me to complete them.  The months not quite over yet, but I'm still not finished.  Can we just say time consuming!  I did have to lay my sewing project down for a 3 day work related trip, and needed recuperation time after returning home.  I can't ever seem to remember that I need to factor in the fact that I work full time when estimating project completion time.

I did manage to dedicate most of today for catch up sewing however:
  • Basting and final fitting
  • Removing all of those basting stitches to facilitate back pocket installation
  • Inseam/Inseam topstitching
  • Side seams/Side seam topstitching
NOTHING LIKE A GOOD OLD OVER THE BACK OF THE DOOR PHOTO
Now it's time to formulate my Finish Line List:
  • Waistband and belt loops
  • Buttonhole and Jean Button
  • Hem
  • No hardware this time because these are a wearable muslin.  (Saving the hardware for the "real Jeans" whenever I get around to making them.)
Now I need to take time off again to take care of some family business.  Hopefully I'll be able to work on finishing these on Friday evening in time for the Challenge deadline...

  1. Looks like they are coming right along! What a fun print. Don't worry - take your time. It is not a race. I started my Ginger Jeans muslin in November 2016 and had to put them aside for months. You get to it when you get to it! Good luck with everything.

  2. They're looking good, or at least fun. I hope they do end up being wearable indeed.
