Fitted Black Pants

From 1990’s pattern ’Today’s Fit’ 7179. These pants took me soooo long to make! I took so many measurements of my body, made a muslin, altered the pattern, tweaked the seams some more. and some more. I ended up leaving off the pockets, they flared out slightly. I was so happy to succeed at making something so challenging. It’s a pattern I’ll keep forever and make some more pants with. I used a stretch denim. I hope the photos show the seams!

Material Notes

    Great job! I have tried a few times to make tight jeans and failed miserably. Your pants look so good!

    Those pants look fantastic on you! I have not tried fitted pants yet — after 50 yearas of sewing. But I would love these!

    Excellent job! I am still too daunted to do pants. These turned out amazing!
