Aloha everyone. I enjoyed reading what you all are up to with regards to getting your sewing "jumpstarted" for June. This morning I got up early and participated in a 5K, my first one this year. I met a new person from Alabama, here on vacation, and enjoyed visiting with a couple of other people I know through VIRR and through my boy's sports programs. I think that is a nice thing about Maui. No matter where you go, you almost always run into someone you know, and almost always have the opportunity to meet someone who is here visiting. I've posted the t-shirt from the race. I don't know if I met my personal goal, because they didn't post the times, but in a couple of days or so I should be able to find out on the VIRR website. At mile two I was happy with how things were going, so that is a good sign. The race was to benefit the Will Smith Foundation, and I am glad I could be there. Also, the course was nice and flat. Bonus!
For the trousers I used a gray, cotton-lycra, suiting, fabric from Fabric.com. It feels so good on. The top is made from a medium-weight, sage-green, rayon jersey that I purchased from Gorgeous Fabrics around Christmas time.
Vogue jeans I made last year. I love that waistband, and tend to use it a lot. I cut a size 36 and lowered the back crotch about 1/2" and added about 2" to the waist. Between the fit and the cool cotton fabric with just a touch of stretch, I am very pleased and will wear these often.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I haven't had a good block of time to soak in the Pattern Magic books yet, but it will come.
