I decided it was time to break out the pants patterns I bought at the Sewing and Stitchery Expo last month. I chose to work with the DVD/Pattern called Master Pants from FitNice System.
I took my measurements, drew out the tissue pattern, made some alterations as recommended and then made my 'muslin' (sample) from a warm gray flannel with yellow dots.
They turned out great and though there were a few more adjustments to make for future finished trousers, these will be great for hanging out around the house.
Yes, I'm wearing my furry slippers for this viewing.
Don't judge MY shape, just the pants.
