My sister-in-law gave me a (night)gown with very pretty fabric and sleeves. The only problem was the length. I trimmed off about 12 inches from the hem and used my serger to make a narrow overlock hem on the raw edge. Super fast and super easy.
Most of the year, trousers or jeans are part of my everyday wardrobe. My favorite style of trousers are a loose fit with a tapered leg. Two of my favorite me-made versions are the Alexandria Trousers and the Arenite Pants. I have worn both of these patterns a ton. So when I saw the Calyer Pants, I knew immediately that they’d be a good fit for me.
