Little did I know that when Project Runway stylists complain about how hard it is to make pants, they are NOT EXAGGERATING IT ONE BIT. I am taking this sewing+pattern making course for novices and have just finished my very first pair of pants. OMG. Having weekly classes only, it took me over a month to design and perfect this pair. During the process I promised myself not to make me pants ever again and just buy them in stores, but now that they are done I can’t help but dream about what else I can make with just small changes to the pattern. I am so happy with this! I finished the pair last Sunday and today is probably the 3rd time I’ve worn them so far. YAY for sewing!
