Sew Your Own Pants – ANY Pants

Learn to sew your own pants

I hate shopping for pants. Very rarely will I find a pair that fit me well. Take jeans, for instance. All the name brands I tried just don’t do it for me. Lee comes close. Kohl’s Croft and Barrow store brand are perfect for me. I have a pair of blue jeans that I could live it. So a few weeks ago I bought the same size in black. BZZZT! Too small. Yes, even different fabric fits differently. I don’t know, maybe they make them in a different location. I have to take them back. There’s sitting on the back seat of my car.

Therefore, I have GOT to force myself away from quilting to make some pants. I have no clue how to pattern fit. I find lots of patterns I’d like to make, but I don’t want to waste fabric picking the wrong size. I have a pair of crop pants I started making months ago. All I need to do is hem them and do the waist. Worrying about the finished fit prevents me from completing them. Mind games.

So this class is on my list. Kathy Ruddy: One Pattern, Many Looks (Sewing) – Pants.
