Please let me start off by apologizing about the less than great quality of this photo. I had not planned on using this photo in a blog post but here it is. As you can see the top is finished except for the embellishments that I want to add. The pants/trousers ….. um well I changed my mind again. As often as I change my mind lately I am so glad for seam rippers. I have not put the hem in as you can obviously see. What I changed is the casing for the elastic. It was simply turning the top of the pants under and a simple seam. No, that was not pleasing me.
I decided to put in what I have heard is called a ‘paper bag casing’. Let me tell you that the fit was just awesome when I put them on. The top of the casing is not so much that it distorts the drape of the top that I made. As you can see I did not make the elastic snug to my waist. Due to physical limitations I just can’t tolerate it so it is not a snug fit. The pants that I altered the pattern to turned out to be proportionate to my body and the limitations that I have. The pants look very appealing to the eye. I am not trying to be self-centered or self-important. I am just talking about the pants.
This is the finished pant garment. Well, most of it. Now, the color is definitely going to change. I just have to dye them. Let me see what I have to choose from.
What color should I use? Hmmmmmm. I am not going to tell you right now but you will see soon. Remember that quick tunic that I made and my last post was about?
Yep. This is the one. It is going to change too. You will have to be watching.
