Well, not really pedal pusher length more like capri’s but I couldn’t resist the name.
These are a pair of pants I drafted myself. I love all of the floral skinny jeans around at the moment and thought I could make a pair easily enough. However it has been quite a challenge to say the least.
I followed some lessons on fitting from Sandra Betzina at Craftsy http://www.craftsy.com/classes/sewing. This helped alot and I can see where I need to make more alterations.
I made a mock up pair to start and then transferred the alterations onto my pattern. They still need alot of tweaking so luckily this fabric was cheap.
I have some gorgeous fabric from Tessuti which I will try next. Hopefully I can get them just right.
Cotton with 5% elastane.
