With this goal in mind I decided to break out an interesting pants pattern I had bought a couple years ago: Vogue 1050.
It lured me in with its cool contrast pleat and flowing legs.
|Look away all squeamish people! When this is attached to my stomach
any kind of pressure on it drives me crazy.
Trusting the advice on PatternReview I omitted the zipper and cut the elastic shorter than the pattern said. I made it as tight as I could yet still be able to pull it over my hips.
While I do feel this leans closer towards classy pajama bottoms than classy travel wear, they are very comfortable and adjustable which was what I was going for.
|Come sort patterns in your pjs with me!! Any takers?
|You can see the side seam bunches here but
it's not that noticeable when your shirt covers it
and you are busy living life.
I probably won't be making this pattern again since it's a bit fancy for pajama pants and I have no "Tissue Faille or Lightweight Crepe"stashed to make a classy pair like on the pattern cover. It's gotten me ready to tackle zipper insertion in pants again. I just need to decide on a fly front, invisible zipper or side zipper? Do you have a preference?
