Pants

Remember the post about the pants I was going to sew? Well they are finished, and I'm wearing them.






They were very easy to sew and I'm mostly happy with the way they turned out. The crotch is not quite right, it's a little too long even after cutting away what I thought was a significant amount, thus making the waist a little high. I'm not sure I'll make any more pants, I think I'll just stick with skirts and tops. All the pants I've made over the years have never been quite right...and I can't sew a fly zipper to save my life so I think I'll just leave it.








Next on the cutting table is a wrap around skirt made with soft hazelnut corduroy...this one should work out quite well...

You are a brave soul. I won't even attempt pants. Of course I have made my fair share of flannel lounge pants with draw string or elastic but, that doesn't count. Nice job.

My grandmother, who was an excellent seamstress, didn't do pants. She said they were very difficult to get right. As for me, I haven't finished my 7th grade home ec project--a sleeveless, zipperless, blouse. Lest you wonder, I'm not a recent graduate. In fact, my children have already graduated from college!!!!!

Best,
Bonnie

The pants look very nice. I love Kwik-Sew patterns too. I like the corduroy and the skirt pattern. Will be very nice. I have a very hard time sewing for me!
