Although I have made pants before, they never fit right. I tried again with the Colette’s Iris pattern. Here is my practice pair of shorts that I made with some left-over fabric.
I had to adjust the pattern a bit to add more room in the rise. And look what I did: I printed the pattern out and cut it out in my size, instead of tracing over my size! I felt very daring, but then, I printed it on paper that had been printed on the other side, so it didn’t seem like wasting paper. And I kept the parts of the pattern that I cut off.
Then I bought some nice mid-weight rayon blend fabric from Britex Fabrics.
They are very comfortable! It’s hard to see, but they have pockets in the front seams and an invisible zipper on the side. I’m so happy with them that I bought a pants pattern!
My photographer is very funny!
