Turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks! I actually made a pair of jeans! I gave up garment sewing years ago as I could never get anything to fit. But with my recent pledge to not buy any ready to wear for a year, I took the plunge and bought a class on Craftsy, Make Your Own Designer Jeans with Angela Wolf. Following her step by step instructions I was able to make a pair of jeans that actually fit! Yes it took me three fit muslins and sure, I made a few boo boos here and there, but I can correct those on the next pair, and I now have a pattern that I know will fit. Success!

My goal is two garments per month, and here it is February 4th--and a short month, so I had better quit talking and get sewing!
