I was so excited about these pants when this issue came out.
I mean...those LINES!!!!
Being me, I decided I ain't making no stinking muslin! And cut them out. The one alteration I made immediately was to shorten the front crotch by 3/4". Since Burda directions are frequently unhelpful, I didn't even look at them.
They're intended for stretch wovens. Oops.
I ended up having to recut the side panels, adding 1" to the back only. This threw a couple other things off, but nothing major. E.g., the dart in the side panel is more forward than in the center and the leg opening is wider...but it doesn't stop me from loving them!!! :)
These took me forever to finish. FOREVER. But I think they're pretty awesome.
You can see they're a little tight at the thigh. I didn't show a back view because I had insane VPL.
So you'll have to trust that I'm happy with the fit. LOL!
I love the front with extended tab.
I ADORE the front of these!!!! I love how the yoke wraps around to the front seam, and the belt loops and the tab waist and everything!!!
Side panel with dart. You can see that there's more room in the back. The waistband had been adjusted and that seam is at the actual side seam so I covered it with the belt carrier.
Cute! Right?!?!?! Ahhhh!
In between fighting with these, I cut out B6219 because I have also been salivating over this pattern since it was released.
I cut a size 16 and sewed the side seams of both the yoke and skirt on the sewing machine to match the stripes.
Excellent matching on the side seams...never even thought about the matching the horizontal seams! OY!
And then zip, zip, zip went the rest of the skirt on the serger. Such a quick project - my favorite!
I also matched across the front - yay!
I ended up using 1" elastic and cut a rectangle for the elastic and just made a "regular" casing. It works. I love it. I want to wear this skirt everywhere right now!!!!
Tell me why I was giving it to the camera:
In all these pics you see I'm wearing the S1916 top. Here are the S1430 shorts modeled:
Thinking about new jacket options. I am going to go with a more casual unlined jacket. I just pulled out my chambray and am aiming to get at least the front and back sewn...then a couple days for sleeves and plackets, a couple days for collar and then buttonholes/buttons. So hopefully I'll have finished before next weekend is out.
