As a member of the Sew a Garment A Month group on Facebook, August idea was to select three patterns from stash and then narrow this down to one. Being a person who normally deviates from rules from time to time, I pulled five pants patterns, most recently purchased-meaning purchased this year-and read through some of the instructions with two of them. I then proceeded to go a totally different route and decided to make a denim dress using this McCall's pattern.
I have had this fabric in stash only for a short period of time. I purchased the same time that I bought a stretch denim from JoAnn's to make a trial version of the Jalie Eleanor pull on jeans earlier this year.
I have cut around the pattern pieces and will do pin fitting later.
I continue to avoid sewing pants. It just feels like a hassle. And for me probably a lot of fiddling with the fit. I am short in length from waist to hip, not the normal 7-9 inches below the waist. I now have a flatter rear, when it once was very round. I have a tummy pouch. My front and back have changed positions. 🙁 I can buy pants from Talbots Petites and they fit very well with a few exceptions. They can be pricey as well, yet they hold up well with a lot of wearing so I do think I get my money's worth.
Still I need to put to use all the Craftsy lessons on pant fitting I have watched.
