I made these back in April. In the meantime I got obsessed with bra pattern making.
But, let us take a break from boobs and cups, and all elastics. This post has a lot of pictures – don’t say I did not warn you! You know how people change their opinions over time? Well, this fabric is still on my favorite list. Time hasn’t changed this ?
I had a similar pair of pants. I wore it a lot. It is now time for a new pair. Here is me gathering materials and choosing blue thread:
I have to say this: the one thing I am completely sure of me (talking about sewing only) is making pants. Never had a problem with them; and I have sewn pants for my mom and other people too. Maybe I was just lucky… But this is my comfort zone. The pattern is mine, I mean I drafted it from scratch:
Cutting was a bit problematic. And staring at birds on the window is a must do:
In any case, here are the pieces. Pink scraps of fabric are for pockets. You’ll see later on.
Proper pants, with proper details: pockets, top-stitching etc…
No step was skipped or rushed.
Almost done and done.
Here are some details – back pockets:
Side pockets – with pinky fabric:
There is one thing I skipped though, zipper. You can see an uncut button-hole on the fly. I planned to put a button, but the button-hole is too close to the edge. I was a little bit disappointed, but it turned out that button is not needed after all.
Are you still reading? After so many construction pictures it is time for modeling! I must say, these are not slim-fit. Also, they are not with high waist and not with low waist. I can wear them without a belt. Actually I think, among other qualities a pair of pants must have, being able to wear them without a belt is very important. Large waist pants ( most RTW ones ) tend to slip down – not a great pleasure to walk in them and not a nice view either!
Great pants for a casual walk/day.
Now we can go back to bras ? What have you been doing?
