Pants Fitting Soap

I don’t dream about fitting the pants yet, but I am close to madness.
I have re-traced pattern and put all changes from my last fitting and I am going to make next pants tomorrow. Unfortunately last alterations I have made have changed the structure of the patterns so I will not be able to re-use my previous pants.

I hope I still can find some stretch fabric in my stash.

Meanwhile the Me-Made-May 2013 has started – it is amazing how many people joined this ‘madness’ Knipogende emoticon . I am trying to view all posted photos on Flicker MMM 13 group –there are so many! I thing is sure – everyone has fun!

I have joined as well the Burda Magazine Sew Along … The idea is to sew something from forgotten Burda. I have some of them as well as patterns. I am planning to make a jacket for my Mr DH.

The pants soap will continue tomorrow…

    I admire your determination. Good luck with your pants. Just keep thinking how great it will be when they fit you perfectly!

    • Thanks – o how I need such support now! This is one of the thoughts which keeps me going on. However I have to set up a limit of acceptance …I think the time has come to buy the book – Pants fitting for real people🙂

  2. I’ve almost decided what changes to make to my pants and I know I’m going to be a-dreaming of low butt adjustments and crotch curves. Cripes that sounds dodgy doesn’t it – the joys of sewing trou hey?

    I’ve run out of muslin fabric so I’m going to have to use my stretch denim with Very Wide Seam Allowances! Sigh.🙂

    • I run out of muslin fabric as well, but I don’t dear to make the pants from real fabric – not yet. I will rip one of the tryouts out and I hope I will be able to make new musling from it. Fingers cross🙂

    • I did one other muslin but the crotch point moved so far forward it was silly! And the horizontal whiskers remained. Can’t re-use the fabric either as I didn’t leave enough seam allowance. Damn it

    • I really exhausted by this pants :-\ I am a little sick and I have not enough energy to follow up. I have been watching this Craftly onlina course… well, nothing new and not so helpful. I will write short note on the blog later this week.
      My latest muslin has still wrinkles at the front and back – I am out of ideas… I am checking Pinterest for some picktures/tips. Maybe this one will be somhow helpful for you http://www.sawyerbrook.com/salon/khaki-shorts-f54/sewing-topic-355.html. And I wanted to have new pants this weekend… hrrrr. I will have to buy more muslin fabric as well.

    wow, I bet you will soon be dreaming of pants!
    I am going to trace out my burda patterns today – I am making 2 tops, nothing too ambitious, but they are something I will wear (hopefully before the end of the month during MMM)
