Salt Lake City, ...
I made up these little pants back in September and as I was a tester for these clever little Clover slacks from Colette Patterns, I decided that I would whip ‘em up from the fabric I purchased at Paron in New York City. A naughty little glen plaid wool stretch fabric. It’s official that I now am in love with wool stretch – particularly the 98% wool, 2% lycra type. So easy to work with, something I’ve not had luck with before, and it stretches! Yay! Makes fitting just a little bit easier.
The most wonderful part about this slack pattern was the fact that it had a practically perfect crotch depth for me – something that NEVER happens! I had to fix the hip curve and the length – the short version was full length on me – but outside of that, these were a cinch! A very high recommendation on my list – especially for pants. These would be great even for a beginner who had a skirt or two under their belt, I think!
