I'm making trousers! Eeekk...
The crappy fitting trousers were the starting point but when I found this pattern on sale, it seemed inevitable
This is the waistband piece and the writing on it says "This finished edge is 1 1/2" below the base of the neck" Errr... Butterick really?? Trousers?? 1 1/2" below the base of the neck?? I think not!
Anyway back to the trousers, the muslin fitted ok and just needed a small tweak to the waist since it was too small and would defeat the point of me making the trousers in the first place...
Moving onto the trousers, I've made the front of the legs
i.e put the pockets on, which may I add are awesome! Remember my bird skirt? Welcome bird pockets!! (there is also going to be bird facing too!)
Hopefully the rest of the trousers will go together as well and I'll be winning.
