Love to wear them, scared to make them.
I read someone recently who said she has “made do” with store bought ones even though they weren’t quite right just out of fear of making them.
So, I found this great sewing supportive collective called The Monthly Stitch, of which I am now a part. This month is, you guessed it, PANTS.
Wanting to start simply with pants, I choose Vogue 1197, an elastic waist pair from Sandra Betzina.
After 2 pair of these no side-seam elastic waist pants, I have decided they just don’t fit my body type. I thought the first pair were OK, but the 2nd pair of ill fitting pants just won’t cut it. I will have to do more work to get a nice pair of pants!
So I purchased Vogue 1003 – the pant fitting pattern.
10 pages of instructions! On the 1st 2 pages I was impressed with the information given. I purchased a size 14 since that most closely fit my measurements.
