I used the same pattern i drafted for the rockstar pants for these. Because the rockstar pants came out to big I decided to not add the 1/2’’ seam allowance on the sides. That was a mistake! They are was to small but I’m sending them to my tinny little sister. I guess i just figured the fabric was stretchier then they really were. I am still very happy how these came out. Instead of constructing them like leggings I made them into pants! This was the first time Ive ever done a pair like that and it was surprisingly easy! There are a few very small mistakes on them but I wont make them again. I went and got more of this fabric to make myself a pair. The fabric is some sort of twill? It has a slight stretch and the damask pattern on them is velvety.
Twill with a velvety damask pattern?
