What kind of fabric did you use? It’s a glen plaid wool stretch (98% wool, 2% lycra) that I bought from the oh so suave Marcial (my new fabric boyfriend) at Paron’s in New York City.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? Actually, when I first mocked up these little pants in muslin, I wasn’t sure if they were a style that I could really pull off. After futzing just a little with the fit (took in the side seams, fixed the hip slope, and the shaved a little off the front crotch depth) I found them to be extremely flattering. They’ve got a great 60’s vibe, which works well with some of the fabrics that I tend to lean towards, like this glen plaid. Plus these were easy peasy, which is totally my style!
What thoughts do you have about the project? Ladies, you’ve gotta give these a try. This pattern was amazingly easy to fit – something I’ve not encountered in a pants pattern before. The crotch depth and length were practically spot on, so if you’re a beginner and have a skirt or two under your belt, these are definitely for you! Enjoy, Friends! Can’t wait to see your version hit the interwebs!
