It’s time for the Spring Fling Blog & Shop Hop, hosted by Sew Much Charm! We are super excited & hope you are too!
Things have been quite hectic here in our house and filled with all kinds of chaos between family events and Spring Break.
I love getting to do blog tours and was really excited to get to sew up something just for me- Waves and Wilds HeyDay Dungarees to get me ready for the spring planting season.
I used a really fun fabric from Shear Madness Fabrics that included a rainbow grunge design.
I was very particular with fussy cutting the fabrics so the seams would not be super obvious. I took a dress making class a few years ago and learned that if you fold back your seam allowance when laying out fabrics it makes it loads easier to line up your fabrics to ensure your pattern matching lines up exactly how you want!
I really loved how this pattern shows you how to adjust for length as well as how to add depth for the crotch curve and how to add for a fuller bust.
The pattern is drafted for someone 5ft 5inches so I did have to add several inches for my height, which I added just above the waist, at the knee then at the ankle. I also added 1 inch width to the bust to accommodate my fuller plus sized bust.
They turned out super cute. And just perfect for what I intended. Then my teen saw them and wanted to try them on then kept them.
I didn’t mind terribly much sincs he looks adorable in them and quite loves them.
I can’t wait to go live with you to show you how I made all the adjustments!
Be sure to check out all the other FB pages joining the tour! You can catch them all after the events and watch them archived if you miss one!
