A bonus inspiration piece, Simplicity 8605 was a quick make that I felt compelled to make after seeing it on Emily Hallman’s instagram page. She’s fun to follow so check her out, her instagram is emilyhallmandesigns.
Frankly, I’m not sure it’s a pants pattern for my body type. I wish I’d added more length to the legs but I’m not likely to make it again. I made them out of a linen rem I picked up in Minnesota at S.R. Harris. This is a great beginner pattern I’d recommend for petite and short wasted women.
I think I’m slowly but surely cracking the code on why I’m sewing less. I really tried to move my sewing in a more practical direction but my whole life is practical. Sewing was filling the whimsy and fun side of life. Sewing had been artful and creative and I robbed something from it by trying to force it into a practical skill rather than a fun outlet. With that being said, I think it’s time to scrap my 2019 plans and come up with a new sewing focus and goal.
