I finished my black cotton twill version of Simplicity 3356 and am very happy with it. The only downside is that the twill is thinner than my denim version so it won’t be as versatile as I had hoped. I’ll still need a heavier one for next winter. Actually, I’m not sure I’ll be able to wear it again until April. It was 75F on Friday but we’re expecting snow on Tuesday. Ahh, gotta love D.C. weather!
Now, on to muslins. I’ve been inspired by the lovely and talented Patty over at http://www.pattythesnugbug.com/ and have decided to give trouser fitting another go. My pattern is Simplicity 4949.
Here are the trousers straight out of the envelope
I like how the leg looks, but the crotch seam is very low. I then pulled them up so the crotch was at a comfortable level, but it changed how the leg fit.
I’m not sure where to go from here. I guess I’ll try trimming the side seam.
