Vogue 1309 is coming along. It is not a perfect fit but I can work with this.
I was surfing the internet to see if anyone has made the pants but I was unable to find some words of wisdom or warnings.
Without a lot of pant making experience under my belt (I know bad pun), I went to work with fingers crossed. The pattern is divine. I like the menswear influence with the front fly zipper. The curved waistband fits snuggly. And the pockets are deep and perfect.
It is not a perfect fit but I am not discouraged at all. To make this a perfect fit for me there are some changes that I will have to make.
Quoting Michael Kors, I am happy to report that there is no "crazy crotch" going on. That is a huge relief.
Now, there seems to be some problems with the side view. I should be able to fix those with some lunges and sit-ups. Seriously, there seems to be some pulling across the pant front side. According to Fantastic Fit for Every Body I should be able to alter the pattern around the centre front and back curve to make it work.
And there was that issue of the centre back that was a wee bit tight and had to be let out.
It looks like I'm going to have to adjust the pattern for my full tummy and derriere by adding to the centre front and back to get the pants to hang correctly on my body.
That should correct my fitting issues and eliminate the need to let the centre back seam out next time around.
Not too much to tweak before I come up with a nicely fitted pair of pants. I'm almost there.
Have you sewn any pants lately? Do you find them easy to sew or do you also have fitting issues to negotiate? I would love to hear about it.
