Today's fit pant
Hello my dear friends, I have been working for months in a hard technique: Fitting Pants; And although I have plenty of material and books to work on it, most of my books are in a storage unit until probably the end of January when we will be moving into our new house, however, I am not a person that like waiting to much for my projects so I took a class or two in my favorite platform Craftsy ( this is not a paid propaganda at all, I truly recommend it) and here is my result, I am very pleased with it and I will explain why!
- I took the class Pant fitting Techniques with Sandra Betzina which includes the pattern V2948
- Easy fitting the Palmer/pletch way with Patty Palmer and Mellissa Watson, also includes the pattern M6901
- fabric for this bermuda pants is 6oz Denim (non stretch) from Jo Ann fabric store
My twin sister asked me why the pants are not tight? well, the result I wanted is to fix the pattern to make elegant, dressy and comfortable pants. A woman not necessarily needs to be tight all the time and it is also a matter of taste; I like to have a variety of pants and shorts.
This is picture above is my pants before, I enjoyed everything except those cat whiskers at the crotch area. I am not trying to insult anyone but I will leave those mistakes for people with not knowledge about pant fittings or how every pattern doesn't fit the same way every body. Some people don't care about it but if I am making something, that something needs to be good. Mediocrity is not part of me.
This white designer pants that you guys see in the picture above is what drove my desire to work in a pattern to recreate the look in the future (you don't see the ugly cat whiskers) and my Bermuda pant in this post was my first result to feel it and wear it to see if it needs some other fixings. Obviously I still can make my pants leg wider of slimmer to make more looks and outfits thanks to the front and back lines that allows me to make changes in the pattern.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post about pant fitting, I recommend those Craftsy classes if you feel lost in the subject plus have the pattern included. Don't forget to subscribe to my blog and follow me in the social media.
God Bless You All!
