My First Trousers - I Mean That I've Made Myself!
I've finished my first pair of trousers!
They are really comfortable to wear but I couldn't get really good photos of them which makes me think that comfortable doesn't always mean they fit!
They are designed to sit below the natural waistline (no, honestly the pattern said so!) and there is no waistband and I believe the waist measurement is right.
There was an awful lot of changes to the size of the darts to the extent that I did wonder if I needed to put two sets of darts in the front. Luckily I didn't go down that rather odd route and instead gradually took in some of the ease at the sides from hips to waist.
Overall I like them even if they have those wrinkles at the front. I will try another style of trouser next time to see if I can alter them correctly for the perfect fit.
