Clover pants

I have started to work on my Clover pants but I haven't taken any pictures. Frankly, I'm not sure I should.  I've read a few blogs out there who claim to not be interested in reading about the actual process of sewing.  They are only interested in seeing the finished product.

At any rate, I'm using a lovely navy blue stretch twill and they are coming along nicely.  I will post as soon as I have them completed.

I've also found a quilter to quilt my quilt.  Hmmm. Say that three times fast.  I have to put together the backing so I will be finishing that up this weekend.

In the meantime, I've been watching Mad Men (who hasn't??) and loving all the fashion.  I can't say I'm a big fan of Megan's wardrobe although this dress was a lot of fun:


I much prefer Peggy's wardrobe although we didn't see much of her clothing this episode.  I think this is my favorite.


*sigh*  I love this show.


  1. I for one am very interested in seeing photos or description of your progress on the Clovers, in view of my recent struggles with all my pants patterns. Did you make a muslin? If not, how are you making fit adjustments?
    As to Mad Men, I love the show and could not stop thinking about it all day Monday. I feel like I must have missed part of it, though, because I don't remember ever seeing Betty in the entire 2 hours.

  2. I know I should make a muslin but I hate to do that step. I tend to fit as I go along and luckily, haven't had too much difficulty.

    I noticed that we didn't get any Betty in this episode as well. It will be interesting to see what happens to her.


I enjoy reading your thoughts!
