Petal Pushers

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.

Material Notes

Cotton with 5% elastane.

    These pants are lovely Annie. The fabric may have been cheap but they certainly don’t look like cheap pants. I have been making pants today and they need a little tweaking too, so I will try again tomorrow. My fabric was from Spotlight, so I won’t be devastated if they fail!

      thankyou, I just saw all of your projects. You have been super busy! My fabric was from Spotlight. I think I paid $10 all up! I’ve never made fitted pants before so lots of learning for me.

      Well Annie, you are doing well and I am sure you will master them. Once you have the right fit, pants are quick and easy to sew up.
