While copying the crotch curve over to the new trouser pattern I figured out why the other trousers were too big.
This picture shows the final front pattern piece from the BS trousers. Can you see the confusion of lines at CB and below the fly? Perhaps you can also make out two different seam allowances marked (1/2″ at waistband and 1″ on the crotch curve).
I actually had three different seam allowances on this pattern – 1/2″, 5/8″ and 1″ which I did not mark carefully or precisely. It is hardly a surprise then that the side and CB seams were sewed with a 1/4″ narrower seam than I had allowed on the pattern.
I am an idiot. Thank you very much.
On a lighter note, ages ago the lovely Tia Dia passed me a ‘smile’ and thoroughly improved my day. Thank you my dear. The award was for doing something really very hard – reading blogs and leaving comments. How awful!
Essentially it is a thank you to all the folk who read and comment on blogs and keep the on-line sewing community alive.
Now I don’t need to tell you any stories or list interesting facts about myself, rather I just list the last nine bloggers who left me comments. So here they are:
Lovely, interesting, inspiring people one and all.
