Let’s call this photographic evidence only. I’m going to Curves in a bit and am already dressed for exercise. Once I put my lace up shoes on, I can’t take them off until I return from the gym!
The pants are great, and will get a lot of wear, I’m sure. They are my favorite fabric for summer pants, a light taupe linen. I did replace the contour waistband with a straight one, which made the band itself less bulky, but more rippled from the elastic.
After I replaced the waistband, I pounded on a size 24 snap to close it, gave them a blind hem and called it a day. Linda T said that she put the elastic in the back of her Marrakesh pants. That’s a good idea and I might try it when I make another pair someday.
That empties all my project boxes. I’ve got three 1/2 yard lengths of Ponte Roma–the non-lycra stuff that they make cheerleader uniforms from. I’m hoping to whip out some gym shorts tomorrow and then join the Jeans Sew-Along at Male Pattern Boldness, already in progress.
