I suck at fitting pants, and I need help.
phew. I’m glad I got that out. It is just that it is kind of awkward to admit when you made a public declaration that you were going to figure out how to do fit this year.
These are my attempt at making the trouser pattern from Sandra Betzina’s Pants Fitting class. It was a pants style I wasn’t excited about to begin with (strike 1), and it is all sorts of awkward fitting in the back (strike 2), and then the poly gabardine is horribly scratchy in the seams (strike 3! You’re out!). I didn’t even bother finished the waistband and hemming.
So… where am I at with this project now? I have two firm leads on teachers that are willing to help me fit a pants pattern – one locally, and one via email. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Listen up, Ugly Pants! You may have won the last two battles, but I will win this war.
