I doubt I will make the contest deadline, but I will get those pants finished soon.
I basted everything together this afternoon and the pants fit! Don says they look good. I don’t know.
I ripped out the basting stitches and am going to sew the permanent seams now.
I will have to sew in the fly zipper. I never have done this so it will be a challenge. Then I have to sew the waistband on, hem the pants, do the hand sewing, give the pants one more press and Voila . . DONE! I will post photos once I have completed finished them.
Note: I did make numerous alterations to the original pattern before I began sewing to get them to fit. If I use this pattern again, I will do some fine tuning.
I think if I would lose some weight I would have easier time with sewing pants!
