I've never sewn pants before. Never! NEVER!!!! The idea of sewing pants intimidates me. I know that I’m going to need to make many, many pattern alterations to achieve a proper fit. I have a hard time buying jeans because the “curvy” isn’t curvy enough. Needless to say, I better get started on a muslin.
I think I will sew up a pair of wide leg, dark denim trousers. I have a vogue 1051 in my pattern stash, purchased in 2010 in hopes of getting enough gusto to try it out.
|Just look at these pants! She looks like a stylish girl who can also kick some serious booty!|
I’m unsure about adding any additional embellishments to the design. Sewing pants (and welt pockets) for the first time will be enough of a challenge. Besides, I love the simple, elegant style of these trousers.
Wish me luck!
