I am going to attempt to sew Burda Pants Pattern 6982 for the Pattern Review contest which ends June 15. There is a pretty good chance I won’t get them done it time. No matter though, I will have a pair of pants! If you click on the picture at the right you can see more details on what I will sew.
I traced the pattern out today. Everything was there and made sense. I will have to decide if I want to make view a or B. I really like them both. Tracing the pattern out was amazingly easy after I struggled so hard with ImageWear Pants Pattern #1002.
I will have to alter the crotch as I always do on pants patterns. That will be very easy compared to how I struggled with it on the ImageWear pattern.
I am going to have to learn how to sew a fly front. Thankfully I have friend who said she would help me if I run into problems. I hope I can learn to do this. I don’t want to fail again. Fortunately I do have another pants pattern that has a side zipper, but those pants are so boring.
Well, please wish me luck. It seems I have spent so much time on making pants yet have nothing to show for it but perhaps I may be too hard on myself. I threw out several pairs of pants I made because I didn’t think they looked very good on me. (I’ve also been known to throw my RTW pants out after wearing them few times if I find them uncomfortable or decide they don’t look good on me. That gets expensive!! ) Now I see women wearing Ready-To-Pair pants that looked ten times worse on them than anything I made. I guess Don was right . . . there isn’t anything wrong with the pants I make . . . I am just too fussy and too much of perfectionist.
I’ll keep you posted!
