2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

PANTS FITTING U...

...I'm still attending Pant's Fitting U.  Can't really give an anticipated graduation date, but I can tell you that I entered this semester willing and hungry to learn. 

I have completed two nice fitting pairs.  They are awaiting new tops that I have planned before I wear them.  I know that you'd probably like to see me wearing the pants to show the fit rather than a picture of them hanging on a door, but that's all I've got right now.  My plan was to make 5 pairs of great fitting  pants complete with a variety of matching tops - a complete 5 day wardrobe.  Wouldn't that be nice???  That's still the plan, but in the meantime,  here's a picture of my progress thus far

 
Cobalt Gaberdine and Aqua Linen Blend

 I'm currently making a much needed black pair, but I already have this fabric earmarked for my fourth pair.  This print definitely means that I am stepping out of my comfort zone, but  I've been wanting print pants f-o-r-e-v-e-r.  The colors fit perfectly in the vision I have for my "SUMMER BREEZES" wardrobe. 



Now it's back to work making the other 3 pair of pants a reality...

  4. Love all your color and can't wait to see the print pair. Once the fit is down pants are really so quick and easy, well, as long as you leave off things like welt pockets. ;)

    1. You are so right Bunny! I've made welt pockets on a jacket before but haven't ventured into adding them to pants.

  14. ooh, a whole wardrobe coming soon - great job on the pants !

    I'm not working on pants OR tees at the moment - there was a piece of fabric on the shelf that was yelling at me for a couple weeks that it was done ageing and needed to be a skirt. So, what was I to do ? LOL

  17. Those coloured pants are going to be something special. And if you really want them, make them - life's too short to have regrets about not wearing a pair of patterned pants! Glad you have managed to get the pants right for your body. Love the bright colourways.
