Jean-ius: Reverse Engineer Your Favorite Fit »
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Casual, Funky
corduroy, light cotton for pocket lining
What was your inspiration?
I had bright orange corduroy and desperately wanted pants that actually fitted out of them. That, and this season's skinny jeans do not fit my thighs, let alone my butt so it was time to get a pants pattern working for me. Sx muslins from commercial patterns later I decided that drafting my own pattern couldn't be any worse.
What are you most proud of?
So many things, the fit, the finish, but mostly the fit.
There are a few features I need to perfect, particularly the back pockets and the waistband finish and but for this pair of pants, I can stand at an angle and it isn't very noticeable.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This course is simply fantastic and Kenneth has good advice for every step. It is worth watching a few steps ahead of yourself. I was glad to have to wait for my silk organza to be delivered (thank you ebay) and to take some time watching the videos.
Otherwise, go for it, I am so pleased with everything about this course and these pants, thank you Craftsy and thank you thank you Kenneth D King!
