Having enough fabric for many pants in my stash and real need for one – I decided to make one without big ado about fitting.
Each time I will check what I can correct to make the next one better. I hope in such way to achieve perfect fitting pants eventually.
I drafted once the pattern of a trousers – but this time I decided to use a patter from my collection. Of course I have enough pants patterns.
I have few stretch jeans fabrics and I decided tom use this McCall’s pattern M6440.
This Misses’ Pants has narrow legs, self faced contoured waistband – I will put zipper in the back seam. Maybe I will put one (or two) pocket in waistband with a zipper.
This pattern is so promising that I decided fused interfacing under the paper form. I hope it will stay longer and I will be able to use it longer. Honestly I was first thinking about fitting such prepared pattern before cutting it from a fashion fabric.
I used my new helpers to keep all in one place – small irons. My DH sand the base to make them smoother.
When checking other patterns I came across this McCall’s pants patter – M6901 – Misses’/Women’s Pants. This is semi-fitted, tapered pants with waistband, side front pockets and front mock fly zipper. It is possible to insert zipper at the back and eliminate pockets. It is designed for medium-weight woven. I have to check if I have this pattern in my stash.
Let’s end this year with at least one finish pants.
