The Silhouttes pants are finished. I found making belt loops on the coverstitch to be much easier than on the sewing machine. I no longer fear them.
The pants fit but I’m going to continue my quest for the perfect pattern. I’ve taken apart an old pair of Gap pants.
Well, half of the pants – a front, a back and half of the waistband. The other half I’m saving for reference. I’m going to merge the Gap pieces with a yet to be determined pants pattern and hopefully come up something that will fit nicely.
