Montalto Dora, I...
Capri pants that went wrong. Burda Italy pattern
Ok, so here’s what I learnt:
The pattern was too small for my shape, which has changed recently. I cut the 44 but had to make tiny seams to make room. I lengthened the crotch, but made it too long at first, then cut off as I tacked and fitted.
I think the biggest problem is the fabric doesn’t suit the pattern. The bottom of the leg is quite narrow and I think it would have been better if it was wider. However, this was an offcut so I only had that and no more. I should have chosen the fabric to suit the pattern and vice versa. I think this would be better in a stretch fabric. The big lessons I’ve learnt are: measure twice and cut once and choose the right fabric for the pattern. Hope this helps any other sewers out there ; )
Light cotton fabric, but quite stiff.
