Pants

Once we knew that Louise Cutting was coming to town, I thought it would be good to try one of her patterns. The One-Seam pants seemed like something I’d wear. This is my second pair — the first were just testers made out of something random in my stash. These were made from a really nice poly I got from the Cloth Merchants last fall in Tulsa.

In general, I like this pattern. Louise’s instructions talk you through several fitting steps — I think I didn’t do something right, since I needed to do pretty much all my usual elastic waist pants fitting tweaks once they were sewn together. I scooped a little out of the front crotch and lots out of the back. When I marked the waistline, I wound up taking off about 2 inches all the way round.

They swish very nicely and are very comfortable.  I’ll probably be making more soon.
