Oh, I'm sick to death of pants, I tell ya'! Look at this beautiful invisible zipper I installed today....wait, are those the front pockets on either side of the zipper?
Yes, since there are no side seams yet, I got messed up and sewed the 2 front sides together. Took 25 minutes to unpick. Then I did it the right way...
And discovered that I've cut them a little off-grain, or twisted them when I was sewing the inner leg seams and princess seams.
Note that the princess seams are heading off to the side when they hit my knees. And again with the baggy rear-end, despite making that great alteration.
So in deep depression, as expected, I pulled out this fabric to make a skirt from Butterick 4399. Here's my previous one with contrasting zip. I'm opting for the tangerine zipper for this one.
I'll try to finish those pants as best I can when the depression lets up.
And in other news, did you hear that the Blue Collar Comedy guys are opening an amusement park right next door in Foley?! Bring the kids, drop 'em off, and let's get together for some sewin'. Now you've got an excuse to come to Alabama for Sandra Betzina's yearly class! (I'm feelin' better already.)
