After two skirts it’s time for pants.
I actually wear pants a lot in my daily life mostly because I don’t quite like wearing stockings and it’s also quite challenging to do it in between waxing appointments… ok, also princesses have hair! Which would open a whole new post/survey/debate on the best hair removal method… but that is beyond the scope of a sewing blog, isn’t it?
Back on topic… this week I have been working on my trousers. I started by amending the basic pants pattern, adding the fly extension and drawing pockets
Then the actual pattern cutting and assembling started. The fabric you see here was expressly bought for these pants. It just took me a whole 7 months to start working on them.
So far I have spent a huge amount of time on the pockets… which didn’t turn out too perfect. I should have scrapped them but I decided against it… I need new trousers before the summer! Next time I will do better. But I have learned a great lesson… seemingly easy things often turn out trickier than expected.
Now I am working on the zipper (another headache), waistband and hemming…I will be reporting back next week as soon as I am able to slot in a bit more sewing.
