Pattern Review: Romper or Jumpsuit- Vogue 9260

Happy SewSew everyone,
Today is a quick review on a new commercial pattern that fits my way of dressing perfectly for summer heat.  It is a  new favorite for now.  How many times have we said this about a new pattern?  At the time of this posting, this is actually a favorite.  Later post will prove something new, so don't hold my feet to the fire please.

Week 3: Part 2- Designing More Skirts: Yokes, Gores, A-Lines & No Math Circle Skirt!!

Well happy Saturday SewDay!!!
Is it time to say, you know all you need to know about fitting and designing your skirts.  Or, is this where you tell me, you haven't been paying attention?  I have just two questions for you.
  1. Did you know every possible skirt can be made from a basic straight skirt?
  2. Did you also know a circle skirt will have an automatic Full Butt adjustment and needs no MATH and does not hike up in the back!!??
    Circle skirts that DONOT hike up in the back.

WEEK 3- Part 1: Designing a Pencil Skirt from your basic skirt.

Week 3 Part 1: Skirt Designing Happiness!!!!
Aren't you glad we have been working systematically through fitting our skirts during this month.  YYYaaaayyy!!!  I am glad we are almost done, because that means we will be on to the show & tell next week.  I can't wait to share! I'm trying not to get ahead of myself though, because we still have a few videos you all haven't seen and a few things we have yet to discuss!!
I was able to knock out another great video for you on the topic of designing a pencil skirt and what to look for when shaping your seams to fit those lovely voluptuous curves of ours.  And I mean, you will be quite surprised at how easy it is to make such a fantastic skirt happen, with such simple changes.  You will even finally understand what an HBL is... uh I mean, a Horizontal Balance Line.  That's right, I'm throwing in a few technical terms just for the sake of stirring up your noggins, you call a brain.  HeHe.  Take it or leave it, we need to understand the jargon to be empowered.


Go take a look at the latest video here.  If the video isn't showing up in your browser or email... go here to watch.  If you are behind and want to see all the videos, then checkout this Skirt Fit-Along Video playlist here.

Looking Ahead to July:  

Planning is underway for the July Swimsuit Fit-Along.  I have even designed a swimsuit for the occasion.  So here is a video to help you stay up on that too.... here.



Happy Fitting!!!

P.S.  Don't forget, the next video is on Gores, yokes, and how to make a circle skirt with ZERO math!!  You will be so awesomely surprised at how easy it is to design your skirts!!!
