Pant Fittings - 1

Technic for the cat whiskers at the crotch 

Hello my dear readers, welcome back to my blog.  Today I bring to you a tutorial that maybe some of you will find it interesting and some others will be shocked to find out that for years we have been wearing pants with fitting issues.  
The picture below will show you one very annoying fitting issue that is very common to see around and definitely it is the one with which I struggle the most.
I want to make a salvation; Jeans are very different pants and in the whole pant styles library, Jeans get the most forgiving rules about fitting. 

Q:   Reason for this cat whiskers in the pants? 

A:  women that have athletic legs which means the quadriceps are protuberant or some just call it protuberant thighs are most likely to have this issue.
Also another reason why some of us happen to have this problem, is simple because the industry make the same pant pattern for thousands of women all with different body shapes and we can not expect all of us to have the same issues. We are all perfect in different shapes but with the same type of pant. That is why I like to make my own clothes.

How to solve this issue

In the picture above and below you will find a guide of exactly what to do.

  1. Fitting under the crotch is difficult, so you can slash pant along creaseline at the upper thigh and just in one leg.  
  2. Gently  tug pant leg to allow the slash to open.
  3. measure the open space.
  4. add half of the measured amount to each inseam and blend to the knee.

Do you notice any difference in my pants after the slash in the leg?  That was exactly my problem and I was very happy to have it fixed.  Now I will continue my journey in my pants making and very soon I can bring to you a couple of patterns that you can work with and that will make your life easier to make corrections, Right now I am working on it when I have the time to entertain myself.

The Jessica Dress

Pattern by Mimi G
Dear friends, here I am today with a cute dress and new favorite pattern from Mimi G Style.  A few months ago she gave this pattern for free and I jumped in and got mine, It was a downloadable file, you can print it at home or at a store.  It runs by letter sizes like S, M, L etc.  I cut the size M and even thou the pattern call for only 0.3 mm I had to sew a lot more than that to fit me.  I love this pattern, I am ready to make it much more of what I thought at the beginning, it is easy, simple and elegant; you can make the skirt in many different lengths of  your preference and me personally, I feel the dress can be used all year, spring, summer and fall.  You can add a simple Torero or a long sleeve shirt under the dress and you will be warm if needed.  Here is the mine!

Summer Outfit!

Beach Time

Hello dear friends, today with my last post for summer outfits, at least in my plans.  However, sewing summer outfits is something I do during the whole year because I am always waiting for cute patterns and wonderful inspirations to sew more beach outfits.  And yes! at the end that is what it matters to me, hot weather and beach;  It might has to do a lot because I am a tropical bird. I was born in a warm city with tropical weather in Colombia.
So for this last summer project I have made the pattern M7756 from McCall pattern company; it is portrayed as a not bra outfit, so it might not be convenient for  every body's taste. however in Colombia there is a saying that in English it does not rhyme: " the fashion trends are not uncomfortable" aka " la moda no incomoda".  anyways, it is not really true, walking the streets of Colombia you can find lots of people that could use fashion etiquette for certain body types.
here it is my outfit:
