I cut up another vesion of my pants blocker with the tweak to the front suggested from the last pair. The wiggle at the side seam is gone, there was some extra fabric between the legs, I'm still finding the right amount to tweak there. Sad thing is I did that version in some striped fabric passed along by my mom that could be cute pj bottoms. I should have noticed how clearly I could see the green cutting mat under it. Let's just say I'm not taking pictures of myself wearing those shorts even for myself just to be safe. Mr. Lina was very happy with the view from the back so a big high 5 to The Consultative Dressmaker for that. He is sometimes vague when things don't look right because he doesn't have the vocabulary (it comes out like "there are pleats there" even though nothing is pleated, the fabric is folding into itself), but when things are right, he finds the words. At this point I feel confident enough to try the red twill shorts. That's up for this afternoon.
I am quite certain I was dreaming about fabric last night. I don't remember the dream, but I do remember rolling over and thinking "Oh I'll have to put that on my blog tomorrow". Damn it, why can't I remember what the heck was going on in the dream itself? Bah. I'll take it as a good sign that I want to be in my sewing room and my brain is probably working on the shorts issue and what to do with that cotton/silk stripe fabric.
