As it says in the title. These are my first pants ever and after getting over the first shock of trying my nearly completed pants on (the crotch length was way too long, although I measured first!), adjusting and resewing them, they now fit quite well, I think. But after this experience I will definitely make a block pattern for pants, I don’t want to go through the fitting nightmare again.
Originally I was going to do the Anita, but after seeing some creations and realising, that they are probably a bit too skinny for me, I opted for the Kwik-sew 3315 stretch Jeans.
I used some contrasting corduroy, left over from my blouse, for the pockets and I personalised the back pockets by topstitching them with a stretch stitch!
