Phoenicia, New Y...
here’s my version of the bella pants. i was originally excited to go high-waisted which i haven’t done since i think elementary school, but then realized that it was just too hot for summer and since i’m not a shirt tucker you wouldn’t see it anyway. i’m pretty darn happy with them. the one thing i don’t like is that the top of the fly the fabric is kinda sticking out. any ideas for flattening that out? the only thing i came up with so far is putting a tiny snap in that corner. my sewing machine was sick when i made the pants and i borrowed my boss’s machine, which did an ok job, but well, it wasn’t my bernina, so maybe the stitching is not as perfect as i’d like, but i think you can only see it if you look really close.
fabric from joann’s, snaps from sewbaby.com
me for sewing and my boss for letting me borrow his sewing machine
