I wonder why I haven't made white pants in so long. Maybe because the commodore look hasn't been my look. Maybe because summer lasts 20 minutes around here. I don't know.
But I had some white cotton sateen and am working on my everyday pants so I decided why not. Of course there is some seam show through and of course if I were making more serious pants I would underline or line them, but these are plain old pants that will be hitting the laundry basket every time I wear them. I am pretty pleased with how they feel and think I will make one more pair of these before moving on. These will do fine for my not work days.
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon
