i learned a couple of things while making these pants. first, don’t bother with the instructions. i’ve always been bad about using instructions or user manuals, but this time i made an effort to read through the provided instructions. it turns out that they have very little to do with the pants in question. so i did it my way.
the second thing i learned from these pants is that i’m not a size 40! i thought i measured myself correctly when picking the size, but the pants turned out rather loose and veeerrryyy big in the waist. i deepened the rear darts and even added two more darts in the back. i also shaved off an inch or two from the side seams.
What do you think of these summery styles?
