Next Up, TNT's...

TNT's... in addition to working on my projects already selected from my post "Sewing Plans for the new year". I will work on selecting patterns from my stash that I can use as TNT's (Tried -n-True), this idea was from Carolyn over at Diary of a sewing fanatic. She is a master of creative use of TNT's. She challenged others to TNT with her. My selection of TNT's will consist of, pants, skirt, jacket, a knit & woven top/blouse and a basic dress. One of the first reasons for having a set of TNT's is once you've adjusted the fit of your patterns you can more quickly put together different components of your wardrobe. They can be used from one season to another and various fabric options, trims and treatments. Of course you don't have to be limited only to TNT's, however creativity can grow using TNT's. However by using a variety of patterns there are challenges to conquer and things to learn so no way will I be limited to my TNT selection. My main goal using TNT's is to build my wardrobe and learn fitting techniques and expand my imagination using creative applications. So, I'll post later on the patterns I've chosen for potential TNT's.

I am working on a pants TNT. I have a TNT skirt pattern and I can sew 2 skirts in one weekend. It takes time and effort to work out all the fitting issues, but once you are happy with the fit... let the sewing begin

I definitely want/need a collections of TnTs. They come in handy on those sewing days when you just want to sew without a lot of fitting issues.

I rarely use a pattern more than once. But, I am trying to designate a few basic TNTs. I've said to Carolyn more than once, no one can work a TNT the way she does!!!

Yes, I like how fast it will be and I can be a little more productive.
