I’m pretty happy with the fit at the back. Even creased from an afternoons wear they hang nicely enough I think. Note – I am reaching up a bit here but all the other pics I took of my rear end were, well, awful. I’m such a goof in front of the camera. Lord. Well you get the idea.
At the front I could take out a smidge more fabric across the upper thighs and the hem is sitting on my foot, but that’s OK. Very wearable they are.
I’m not showing the waistband because its a bit of a mess. The pattern called for a straight band and I did a two piece jobbie so it was never going to fit properly for below the waist pants. That’s OK as it isn’t gaping too much and next time I’m keen to draft a shaped one. I’ve found a couple of tutorials and discussions to try…
Speaking of waistbands, I find it tricky finding just the right position for the hook bars. The hooks are pretty much at the edge of the overlap and I’ve already moved the bars twice. Argh. Do you have a good method?
I guess it could be something to do with the poor fit a straight below the waist band gives so I’m having to fiddle about with the other elements to work around it. Dunno but I’ll be moving one of the bars again while watching telly tonight.
Other than that I’m rather pleased with myself. I’ve fixed a muck up so that it is at least wearable and I have learned a bunch about fitting and constructing pants. Yay.
Now, what’s happening with the self drafted pair? They’re on hold for now as I’m starting to think I need more skirts…..
