One is not supposed to whinge or moan or whine but..It's My blog and I'll whine if I want to Leslie Gore on You Tube because my knee is still sore as a result of an injury. What is the point of all this? At the moment getting dressed is far easier if I wear leggings and the few I have are on high rotation, so out of necessity I decided to make some out of light weight denim with 5% spandex, that just happened to be half price at Lincraft.
I already had March BurdaStyle 2012 on loan from the library and in it was a very nice three part trouser for stretch fabrics. Trying to get a link from Burda is a hassle so here are pics of my pattern.
My version, and Look Ma there are no side seams!
The original is a ritzy three part pant with a front decorative seam and a back decorative seam and they fit really well. Yes! The original also has: front darts, a partial band below the waist band, back welt pockets and a fly zip. All gone. I extended the pieces to make away with the extra decorative band and at the last minute didn't even put in a mock fly. I added a bit of ease width ways that I could probably take out again, next time I make them. Because I will make them again, I love them.
Edited to add a link to my pattern review of pants no 2 Pattern Review
and a photo.
Seeing I have plenty of time to sew at the moment watch out for a Burda shirt coming soon.
Happy sewing and whatever you are doing,
