    Very cute, Angie. Amy Butler has nifty patterns (and very cool fabric, too).

    Did you test your buttonholes on the sheet fabric? I’m wondering if the higher thread count of a sheet would necessitate a smaller needle.

    I did actually. I used the scraps from where I’d cut the pants out and tested the buttonholes on that, so it should have been the same. Oh well!

    That is wierd. I get very frustrated with thread tension and needles sometimes. Just when I’m sure I have it right, I don’t.

    I love the pants! I would wear pants like that every day if I had enough pairs. Considering how often I do laundry that means I’d need about 14 – 21 pairs, ha ha. I could use my Grandmother’s vintage silk or fancy fabric to make my “dress pants”. Old curtains from thrifts also make dandy sewing fabric if you can find some you like, just like Miss Scarlett.

    I love the pants on you but I can’t stand the image from the book cause the guy on the toilet seat is wearing peach colored shorts and that’s just not happening. Looks like her dad.

    Very cute! I’ve got that book, but I haven’t made anything in it yet. I might have to go out thrifting and find myself some sheets, too.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
