My project no. 4, chapter clothes (I am trying to make some toys too). So, as soon as I saw trousers from Burda 10/2012 I though I would look skinny as the model on the picture (of course it doesnt work that way, but I do hope, always ). I bough some black semi winter material, which has some strech in it, but its nothing similar to yersey. So, I take pattern in my regular trousers size, but it turned out to be too small. I dont measure pattern as each time I do it it turned out to be too small, but end product is usually too big. This time, it was not the case. Around the waist it was just perfect, but the rest was far too small. I tried with inserting few cm fabric as seen in the picture, …hmmm… for now, its ok…
Next pair of trousers will be better. And of course, if anyone is reading this and have some tips, comments or advices ..pls. feel free… I will be happy. I want to improve my skills which are not that good at all.
