I’ve made my first polo!! Whew lol
This is my 2nd pair of jeans. This pair McCall’s 5894 is a better fit than the last pair I made.
I don’t have much booty but I have a lil bit of hips 😉
I found the metal Dungaree Button @ wal-mart, they were like 6 in a pack for $2. I think they add a more finished look to the denim. Makes them look more ‘professional. IMO
I added an 1.5″ in length, I like having the option of wearing flats (cuff the leg once) or wedges(leave them hanging).
All the top stitching with the heavy “jean thread” had me ready to toss my machine. I free handed the “p” on the back pocket. I think it looks good and adds a little something extra. 🙂
The Polo style shirt is Kwik Sew 3059. VERY EASY!!!
In the future, meaning when I get an embroidery machine I am going to add some sort of symbol (like the polo horse). Maybe a Fleur De Lis OR a Dragonfly OR a Peacock feather. lol Don’t steal my idea 😉
I used a cotton interlock. Love working with cotton… Slippery fabrics can bite it! lol
(this is the true color of the shirt… more kelly green than sage)
I opted not to add the button/holes bc I have a polo I bought from old navy recently that doesn’t have them.
And I added 1.5″ of length. I don’t like when my belly shows because I raise my arm to say hi. lol
I’ve been a polo style girl FOREVER! Nothing like a polo style shirt to put a smile on my face. Easy to wear and coordinate with most anything and COMFY to boot. Now that I can make my own I’ll stay off of Marshall’s racks looking for the $12.99 clearance polo’s lol.
And a parting view. lol
Hope you’re having a GREAT week 🙂
