|My beautiful warm corduroy pants!|
|My old, worn store bought cords. Not bad for five years of wear.|
|Old worn and boring on the right, Lovely, fun details on the left.|
I'm delighted I got to use that amazing old button.
|From Frayed to Fabulous. Hemmed to the perfect length so it won't|
These are a wide leg pant and I've learned the heaver the fabric the wider the leg. I want to do a bootcut jean next and am not sure how to draw it in. I experimented by basting these pants and it twisted the leg around.
Do I just mark my knee and taper above and below? (I made a muslin out of the leftovers of my brown poly pants but it didn't work cause you can't press poly:P) Should I just make another muslin out of a better fabric?
Please share your jean making resources! All I can find are directions for making skinny jeans which is not the look I am going for. I did find this site with a promising resource. Has anyone heard of her before?
I am in need of your pant/trouser making wisdom. I know there has to be a solution out there! Thank you!
Oh yeah! I almost forgot, this is garment makes 5 down of my 27 stashbusting garment total! Pretty sure this is vintage corduroy I got from a lady before I went to college...
