|Clover pants and my Sencha blouse|
I was pleasantly surprised with the fit moving forward. The legs were a little wide so I took them in slightly. I was too nervous to take them in too much but they were comfortable and the rest of the fit seemed great.
I'm really happy with how they came out. They're definitely just going to be the first pair I make - I'd like to make another - this time with the appropriate muslin - and really get the legs to fit just right. Just a little more form-fitted.
This would actually be a fast project if it weren't for my silly mistakes in the beginning. I think once I make the muslin to fit, I'll have a great base to make several pairs. Oh, and next time I'll do the pockets. I just didn't want to add that to the fact that I was already nervous about my pants-making skills. I really liked the flat-felled seams. I used the tutorial provided on Colette's blog. I had always been concerned that home-made pants wouldn't be as 'secure' as store-bought, and now I know the secret.
