Dear Sewing Bloggers,
I have a dilemma. A pleasant one. I have made up some cargos using the front of New Look 6251 and the back of my pants block with a lower rise and a straightened leg. I fiddled with the front of the New Look pattern to add pockets and to make the wrap around side panels stop at the side seams. The dilemma is this, while I can blog anything and share what ideas I used and from where, at what point does this become annoying when doing a Pattern Review? Should I do one or not?
Do reviews of Frankenpatterns put you off? Or is the sharing of an amalgamation of ideas a good thing? Do the very words 'I used my pants block' send you running in the opposite direction?
Fresh from the sewing cave
New Look 6251
Lots of details that show up better in real life: belt loops, double stitching, pocket flaps, second pockets higher up instead of a line of trim.
The leg looks straight from front or back but is actually tapered.
It's a long weekend here. What are all you guys doing?
