After the last post on lazy sewing I guess the time is right to get back to full-on, draft-it-yourself, patterning from scratch. With the help of a friendly sewing teacher of course!
My last module in my sewing course involves sewing a pair of pants. Here is my pants sloper. Or ‘basic block’, depending on which side of the globe you happen to live in, or which sewing philosophy suits your fancy. Definitely one of the more difficult slopers that I have drawn so far.
I made a pair of straight-cut pants from a seafoam green duck cotton fabric which was on sale in Spotlight. No pictures of the actual cutting I’m afraid, that’s how excited I was to get down to sewing.
I’ve yet to sew the waistband on this pair, that will be a whole other lesson. But they will include belt loops. Not that I need a belt with this pair, because they are quite snug in the waist and hips. That’s what you get for using your measurements from a year ago.
In other news, I have completed my French Dart Jacket.
