Los Angeles, Cal...
I finally bit the bullet and decided to tackle pants. Okay, shorts, but same idea. I used a vintage pants pattern that came with a convenient alterations guide, made a hideous first muslin, modified my pattern a lot, then made this second, wearable muslin. I like how the high waist keeps the shorts from shifting around too much and prevents any unintentional underwear-viewing, but I had to break up the expanse of blue a little bit with some tabs and gold buttons.
I learned that pants are simultaneously not as difficult to sew as I thought, and just as tricky to fit as I was afraid of. I’m excited to try again, though, perhaps with an actual fly-front next time!
