DYT Type?

Well, I have found myself questioning my “type 2” ness…  I joined the facebook page for type twos and I just don’t feel like I really fit in with that group.  Today, I played around with a type 3 outfit just to see and I really liked it!!  I met a good friend for lunch and she’s been following a long with my process.  In her opinion, I’m definitely more of a 3 than a 2.  Here’s me in the outfit.



I was in Kohls and wanted to try on the colored jeans behind me just to see….and boy, did they ever make me thankful that I sew!  I tried on five pairs of pants and wasn’t even tempted by any of them!   The ones I have on in the pic are a pair of Thurlows that I made awhile ago.  They are far superior to anything I tried on.  I actually have 2 more denims and 1 brown twill pulled out in the sewing room to make more.

But first, I’ve been working on my Mccalls 5818.  Last night I pinned the pieces together per the pattern instructions for a test fit, unpinned and sewed the inner leg seams.  This morning I did the outer leg seams and interfaced the waistband.  Here’s a shot of the zipper (Yes, I’m quite proud of it). 🙂


One thing that I found kind of cool about this pattern was the crotch curve. The pattern actually comes with several options!


I’m using the lowest one b/c I have a droopy butt and it seems to be working well.  I am excited to see how these pants turn out!  I hope to have them finished tomorrow.  It’s really just the waistband and hemming left to do!

Happy Sewing!
