After years of being to afraid to make pants I finally dove in. Mostly because I could find NOTHING I like in stores, and ready to wear never fits my figure anyways. So I decided to make some high waist jeans. But, I always hate how the fly adds bulk to my tummy, and I have been working to hard to get it flat to add bulk! So I threw the zip in the back which makes a much smoother foundation (and is a lot easier) Ok, enough jibber jabber, on to the pictures!
I love this red hat to much to not fit it in somewhere...
I was able to make them fit in the front so well by making a yoke type panel on the front. Otherwise I had pouchy crotch, and I'm not so down with that.
The seams look a little jank, but I was happy I got all the raw edges encased in the zipper.
These did take a minute to make, because all the seams were done with 2 straight seams, then an over cast. Otherwise they were pressed open and sewn flat. I need an overlock machine!
And just for fun, hair swooshes!
Thanks for looking! I am so proud of these pants I'm going to start another pair as soon as I can
