Okay so I know that work pants are not exciting, but they are a necessity. I have been having issues trying to get pants to fit.
Mostly because I keep changing sizes. My little guy is now 2 and 1/2 and I have gone to a size 14 after having him (I was always an 8, wahhhhhh!!!). Then lost the weight to a 12 and then to a 10 US size by last year. But in the year, I have progressed back to a 14:(.
So making clothes have been difficult.
I made 2 pairs of jeans and by the time I got done, they were too small:(
Oh well, one day.
I have this gorgeous Lycra spandex polyester maroon from Frabic Mart that has the perfect stretch and feels great for pants.
I used a pattern I downloaded from Bootstrap patterns. In all, they were almost a perfect fit.
I did have to adjust the front crotch line a little bit, but the fit with the material worked out great.
Here is the band line. I like the wide ban line, and they have a side zipper so I didn’t have to worry about doing a fly front.
In all they were not too bad to put together. The only issue is that I accidentally cut into the front crotch because I didn’t have enough fabric, so i had to fix with interfacing, but I don’t think you can tell, lol. Hopefully!!!
Here is a completed version on my maniquin with my newly finished Mimi G Georgia top that I love!
