Pink Fig Market Day Gauchos
This is what I have been working on, The Pink Fig Market Day Gauchos. I wanted to give them a bit of a holiday flair so I used crushed panne in 4 colors.
I really liked this pattern. It's the first I have used from Pink Fig. It had an easy to follow booklet with directions and the lines on the paper pattern were a dark blue and easy to easy.
The only issues I had were solely due to my sewing machine acting up! ARGH! More tension issues and now I can't set the length between stitches. I think something came loose during the move. :( And even though I LOVE that my new foot is clear, it is NOT a Singer foot and I think it is a tad bit too thick. I have been having feed issues because of that.
ANYWAY! I love the Pink Fig pattern designs and I can't wait to try out the other patterns that I won! ;)
So, what do you think of my take on the Market Day Gauchos??? I will have Cailey model them as soon as the top is done!
I will be starting on a matching shirt of my own design today. As soon as I am done I will be posting the tutorial! :)
Tomorrow I am going to get together a list of Christmas homeschooling links. I've been having a hard time getting into the Christmas mood lately. I hope that will help! I think it has a lot to do with the fact that we basically skipped Thanksgiving, Jacob is not here AND it's still VERY warm down here! LOL It does NOT feel like Christmas!!! ;)
