It appears the Traum tracing wheels are sold out on eBay. Keep hope alive! They are always popping up. Also, I want to reiterate that the Clover tracing wheel does 1/4 inch increments. So 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or 1 inch are the seam allowances it gives you. Unless you bend / warp one of the little wheels. Or, just use a different seam allowance. 5/8 is a general guide and certainly not the RTW garment industry standard. But, they both make tracing much easier. I never could just eyeball it.
I had to spend the last few days in Washington DC. The *best* thing about DC is that I can hang out with NiceGirl (Who makes being a vegetarian palatable. She made the yummiest butternut squash and carmelized onion tart for dinner). The second best thing is that I always make a G Street Fabric run.
I know they are discontinued but available online.
Multi colored and black foldover elastic. The black foldover will be used for binding a new Hot Patterns Cosmopolitan. The multi was too cute to pass up. Oddly enough, the black was twice as much ($1.80 a yard) as the multi ($0.55 a yard).
Alright. I’m off to do a wee bit on my yoga pants, of which I’ve only cut out. I’ve done nothing else to them since Sunday. When I get the pants made, I’ll show you my next two projects.
