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 Cheesy

You did a great job! I haven't graduated to zipper or clothing yet because of shaping, so I'm envious. Maybe I'll take some inspiration and try an article of clothing myself. Well done! And the hair whips are a nice touch. Grin

Those are some FANTASTIC pants you've got there. Did you use a pattern at all or did you come up with it all by yourself? Either way they look great!

Thanks guys! @gleangenie, I was just thinking of making a tute on the zipper. They are really easy once you know the steps and give a few try's. This is my own pattern, I used old pants, measurements, and a whole lot of tailoring to get to the final copy. They were not as hard as I thought they would be, but a lot of time and steps to get to the desired results.
