BWOF 8/2009 #106 pattern with few minor alterations.
I deepened the top back panels to fit my bottom (standard alteration I do on pants) and narrowed the waist a bit. Other than taht, the pants fit me well.
The waist is interfaced with fusible interfacing. I thought some boning would help keep the waist up. However, since I didn’t have any boning in my notions stash, I improvised a bit. I cut 2cm wide strips of horse hair canvas and used them as boning. I hand sewed the strips to the seam allowances of the waist. The result is great – the waist has some firmness, and it is very comfortable.
I am wearing the pants with my “JJ pattern redrafted” shirt – you can see that I narrowed it at the waist, and I think it looks much better now. This shirt goes well with high waisted skirts and pants.
