Hey everyone!

So I made some pants of a fabric I really love and they turned out looking like a pyjama :/

Anyone has got an idea how to fix that or what to make else out of it?



Here is what I am talking about!

Thank you!

I'd say add a flat waist band and a zip or buttons, rather than an elastic waist. And maybe make the legs more fittedn, like a skinny-jean type look.

quick fix:  press them with a crease up the front.

Or.............you can take them in in a different spot i found out about a few years ago and i just love the effect. My jeans were getting this saggy lower butt thing and being one of my fav pairs i sleeked help on what to do to make them fit better. and i was instructed to try this method i just lov to do to any of my pants that   turn them inside out and grab the top of the crouch seam in one hand and the top of the back seam in the other hand....see a scoop from front to back? stitch along that arch from front to back like maybe a 1/4 of an inch if you need more you can always do it again. then cut seam allowance close to the stitch line (but not too close) then clip your curves and then finish with Fray Check!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...that is one of my fav sewing tools!!!!!!!!!!!!
-you will want to try on the pants inside out after you do the stitch. because you can always take out the stitch and try something else, but thats kinda impossible if you've already cut the fabric! lol good luck hun!!!!!!!!!

If I understand what you're saying, you're stitching 1/4" in from the original stitch line all along the crotch seam from front waistband to back waistband?

That will lower the crotch by 1/2", making the pants looser there.  It will also make them narrower by an inch all around the waist and hips.  It won't change the legs.
