So I drafted my Sew-along trouser pattern today. Remember I was hoping to channel the 1940's high-waisted, long legged vibe? Never mind. That's passe. I need something a bit more avante garde for the school run. Something a bit more Catwalk:
Something a bit more Nascent Adolescent Tory:
Something a bit more 'Party In The Back':
I jest. I really, really don't want to make jodhpurs. But that appears to be what I'm drafting:
The front section (on the right) does not scare me that much. But the back side? I worry. See at the hip line the side seam curves in an alarming manner?
For all my faults, I'm really not a hippy shape and there is almost no junk in my trunk so I don't understand why this psycho-curve is manifesting itself. Not enough ease in the thigh? Something awry with the waist? Tell me truthfully... Is it my anaemic knees?
To compare to a pair of wide leg trousers
I've never made trousers for an adult before, is it normal to have semi-dramatic shaping to the side seam? Please vote:
A) I sew for women and this looks just fine.
B) I sew for women and this is not fine.
C) This is going to work out just fine for me. And by 'just fine' I mean that these are going to be hilarious and I'm really going to enjoy laughing at them and you.
