Wow! After three days of Newcastle Cardigan sales we have gathered quite the list of international customers: Spain, England, France, the U.S.A., and Australia. My classmates were joking that I could technically call myself an internationally renowned designer… not exactly the type of designer that most of my class aspires to be and not exactly renowned but I am living my dream, that is for sure!
This week I have a sneak peak of progress on the Jedediah Pants…I love how they look so far!
Flat-felled back yoke and top-stitched back patch pockets:
Bar tacks to secure the front slash pockets:
Flat-felled inner side seams:
Slim fit legs (excuse the wrinkles, I had just finished scrunching up the legs to sew the flat-felled inner side seams):
Next week we hope to have a mini photo shoot of the finished size medium – stay tuned!
We are eager to hear your thoughts on this pants pattern – what intimidates you about sewing pants? Where can we add extra instructions and illustrations? What are your preferences on trouser fit and pocket stitching (edgestitching and topstitching or just a single line of stitching?)? What are your thoughts on flat-felled seams and french seams…would you rather just serge or do you like having this serger-free option available to you?
