Coming Up This Week/More Pants and The Sew Along

Happy Monday Everyone! 

I'm one of those crazy people who loves Mondays. The day seems to hold all the possibilities of the week neatly in one day :)

A little later today, I will be doing the second post on my pant experience. 

Here's a sneak peek. The pair below were the first pair I made and I made them out of a wool crepe. They are not hemmed.  

The left side.

The dreaded back view :)

And the right side.

I'll have better pictures in my next post, along with the herringbone pants and the shorts. 

We will begin the sew along for the Islander Patterns Easy V Express Top tomorrow.

If you would like to join in, there's still time to get your pattern with a 20% discount. Just remember to use the code RHONDA at check out. 

We'll also discuss lengthening the pattern to make a dress. A dress out of this pattern is great as it's perfect for throwing on in the summer, and maybe even better with a shorter sleeve, or no sleeve. We'll also discuss deleting the sleeve, for a super cool version. With temperatures already hovering in the 90's. I'm looking for super cool!

Hope your day is off to a great start. 
See you a little later!

  1. I love the fact that you see monday as a day of possibility:) I must adopt your attitude. Your pants look as though they fit like a dream! Well done!

  2. It's nice to see this instructor now. I took a class from Judy burlap back in the late 80s and was thrilled to see them working together. I can't believe I've gotten so old in the sewing community!! I used to love being the youngest in the class. Thank you for letting us know she was still out there.

    Your pants fit very nicely straight out of the envelope. I'm sure I'll need to work more miracles to get mine to fit. Either way, the journey is what makes sewing so much fun.

  3. Did I miss the sewalong for the Easy V Express? I saw one video and then nothing to be found for the up coming sewalong videos.

    1. Hi JeriLynn,
      You have not missed the follow up videos. I had a bit of a disaster to deal with and have not been able to get back to the sew along. Everything is finally getting back to normal and I will have the next video up on Tuesday June 27th. Thanks for checking in with me! Have a great weekend 😊

  4. What beautifully fitted trousers and that dress is gorgeous. You are the Queen of pattern hacks. Xx
