Yay! We’re starting off 2018 sewing pants!
Our first sewing prompt for the #CurvyYearofSewing is JEANS AND TROUSERS. To help you with your pants making endeavors, we’ve picked out three curve friendly sewing patterns as suggestions. These patterns are not required to participate in this challenge, as you can choose whichever pattern that suits you.
A classic jean pattern designed for curves with a choice of apple or pear fit and a skinny or straight leg. Sizes 12 – 28 (up to waist 48″ and hip 58″/59″).
A slim pull-on pant with an elastic waist. Sizes 4-30 (up to waist 50.5″ and hip 61″). This pattern is also free when you sign up for the Style Arc newsletter.
A retro wide leg 1940’s inspired trouser. Sizes 10-28W (up to waist 44″ and hip 52″).
Although we are focused mainly on sewing for women, we are going to try to include a men’s pattern for each theme of this challenge. For this category we’ve chosen the Hot Patterns’ Mr. H.P. Straight-Talking Straight Leg Jean which goes up to a 50″ waist.
To help out with your jeans making, Cashmerette Patterns has generously offered our participants 15% off the Ames Jean pattern and Ames Jeans Notions Kits (code: CSCAMES) valid at checkout through midnight EST on 1/31/18.
In addition to a discount on the Ames Jeans pattern, Cashmerette is also offering 30% off the Jeans Making for Curves class (code: SEWJEANS), valid through midnight EST on 1/31/18.
Emma One Sock is sponsoring the Jan/Feb prize with a $50 gift certificate. The prize will be given to a participant who sews a Jeans or Trousers pattern and shares it on Instagram or in our CSC Community Group on Facebook with the hashtag #CurvyYearofSewing before 3/1/18. The winner will be randomly chosen.
