Will you look at that! Lookie look look look.
Those are my skinnies – BurdaStyle 2012/10/116. Finished. Passable fit? Hell yes and I am very, very pleased with myself.
Picture quality is OK (just) …. sorry …. but I guess you’re not here for my photography skills, fortunately. Anyway, they are made in black cotton drill with 3% lycra and I cut a more or less standard size 38. The alterations are fairly small and few compared to the multitude of changes I made to the various muslins along the way and overall these are Significantly Better than ALL my previous versions.
I will post about my fitting trials later but now am just happy these are wearable. In fact I wore them most of yesterday and today, successfully don’t you think?
I added 1/4″ width at both side seams and inseams, as the drill is only slightly stretchy. Then I scooped out the front crotch and raised the bottom of the whole crotch curve. There are still some soft horizontal folds in the lower front crotch but that’s OK for now.
That pic aint the best but you can see there are a few creases down my legs. While the butt is OK, the waistband pulls down and out at CB too and I have a slight S bend on the side seams. That means a prominent butt tweak for next time.
Next time. Not now. Happy dance.
