These were long in the making, and still not perfectly fitted, but close. So close. Sewing pants is easy. Fitting is tough. After a day of wearing them, the stretch cotton became much to baggy for my liking. I have enough to try again for a perfect fit, and once done, this pattern should prove to be quite versatile.
I interlined the trousers with an orange stretch lining, using this ingenious method, encasing the raw edges. The crotch was simply serged and pressed to the side. I shortened the side zip so that it didn’t end on my widest part. And instead of self facing, I used red Petersham ribbon. It feels divine on the skin!
I’m still going to consider these a wearable muslin until I get the fit just so. Of course, there’s more over on the bloggy blog.
