more images of Katie's jeans

I'll take some detail shots and talk about the fabric and the fit tomorrow or the next day; there's only so much daylight left by the time I get home from work!

Still trying to tweak the woman's jeans pattern. I'll put up some more detailed shots soon.

"Plowed Under", WPA Federal Theater, 1935

Casquette, version 3.5

I've been feeling a little low on inspiration since I've been back from my trip to Western NC and Florida, so I haven't been up to my regular sewing activity. Very ready to get back to the East Coast and stay there. But, I did manage to work on my newsboy/casquette pattern last week. Looks like I need to extend the front of the crown so it reaches out further on the bill, but it is coming along nicely.

Ingredients: Light-weight all wool body, acetate lining, cotton sateen band, bill stiffened with denim. All materials from the thrift store.
