I haven't quite followed all of their smart advice yet, but I wanted to show my progress before I disappear for 2 weeks for my next work rotation.
|I just noticed how low the left side is. I think it's just drooped from running back and forth to the camera because it was fine earlier.|
There's still lots of fabric around the knees, but I think taking in the inner seam will help with that. I also suspect I'll have to take it in a bit more from the outer side seam, but I want to resolve the back crotch issues before I do that, just to see what it messes with when I do. Pants are complicated and messy.
Everything is just basted together, except one inside seam and the pockets. Once all of my alterations are made, I'll mark up the right seamlines and trim down the seam allowance, rip it apart, alter my pattern, then sew it all together properly (and hope it goes together properly again).
Sadly, I now have to leave these be while I go back to work tomorrow. :( I wish I had a couple more days to work on these, but it's better to leave it alone and not try to rush the alterations.
You guys have a good and productive time sewing! See you in a couple weeks. :)
