This weekend… I decided to attempt to put together a pair of pants. I decided to use a pattern for shorts and extend the length for the pants. I got the idea from another member of the sewing group. I selected McCall’s 6756 and extended it. I cut it out larger than I needed so the fit could use some work. I think that I am going to go back to drafting my own pant pattern to get a better fit. My body style falls in-between the commercial pattern sizes. so I have to cut too large or too small then make adjustments. It may be easier to learn pattern making.
It was fun completing this piece and I feel that I’m getting better at it with each piece that I complete. This one didn’t take me all day.
On the fitness front: I will get up and run 4 miles in the morning (God willing). I brought a new fitness program: Katami 4X4. After my run in the morning, I’ll do one of the DVDs. My body type is soooo odd. When I’m on track, I look and feel great… but if I don’t run for 3 days in a row, I start to feel sluggish and look bloated. Or it may be the sugary drinks…… All is well in my world right now, and I truly believe that 2014 not only brought in new opportunities, but 2014 brought in peace. I’ve been so peaceful lately and it’s all thanks to God.
