Friday Night Sew In tonight

Handmade by Heidi

The Friday Night Sew In is tonight.  I'm not sure how much sewing is going to happen tonight, but I do hope to get some drafting done.  I bought the book Making Your Own Patterns from someone on PR.  A friend of mine helped me get some good measurements today, and i'm hoping to get to drafting my own pattern tonight.   The book looks like this is layed out in a pretty straight forward way, so i'm hoping not to have too many problems with it.  We'll see how it goes.  

You can sign up for the sew-in here.

Happy sewing all.

Getting the proper measurements is the first step. Have fun. :)

I did like that book but have one problem with it. She states that a basic should have two inches ease, but right after she shows a blouse and it has 4 inches ease but never explains how and where she added the extra two inches.

Apparently this info is secret because it is quite difficult to obtain--from any sewer.

If you figure it out, let me know.
