All finished! They turned out great, and are very comfortable. Unfortunately, the narrow leg is not very flattering to me. Too, there’s no room for any but patch pockets on the front, which are only useful as decoration.
Hopefully I’ll reread my own blog post before I pull this pattern out again.
You may notice that I shortened the patterns’ waistband, which is designed to extend further toward the side. As for height, I like it because it ends just at my natural waist.
You can see the patch pockets I added to the back so that I can carry my phone. I read someone’s blog post about positioning pockets low and making them large to make your derriere look smaller.
I tried. LOL!!
There is some extra back-thigh volume, but no butt-puddles*. YAY!!! Thanks to Peggy Sagers’ tip re: darting out excess at the top of the leg and my making sure I had enough crotch length in the horizontal area of the curve, I’ve got some happy pants!
Next I’m sewing up a couple of things I have cut already, and tracing my Ottobre jacket. I’ll update those soon. ( I almost typed tomorrow. Hee hee. Even though I seem to be blogging more these days, I don’t want to promise too much!)
*I’m currently of the opinion that those are caused by having too much length when you really need depth (or would that be width?). Anyway, when I fix the angle of the leg using Peggy’s tip, then add enough near the crotch point, I get a nice smooth back.
