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!

Cocktail Dress

Hello my dear friends, here I am again with a cute pattern but even better yet, exquisite fabric that I have been looking for at least a year. Ever since I saw the pattern from McCall 6696 I knew that I wanted to make it just like the one in the cover but I could not find the fabric to make it just like that. One day in a trip to Atlanta, My husband let me down at Joann's Store to see what was new and there I found my fabric and wait! ...... in 70% discount, from $29 dollars I paid $9 dollar per yard.  So believe me, I was really happy that day.  I have treated this dress with so much care and I have enjoyed every part of making it.

Pattern Review: I love it and can not wait to make it again but probably with different features. I did not make any changes to the pattern and I did sew the size 14 which it has all my measurements.
I hope this dress can motivate some of you to make it and hopef…
