Pants Update

I finished my muslin of the pants pattern. It is absolutely atrocious. I am glad I just used bleached muslin and not real fabric. They almost look like old-fashioned jodhpurs. The waist is so high, the hips and legs are poofy, they are tight around the ankles....

I have a pair of black pants that I love, I really should just trace off a pattern and make them fit perfectly.

Fun fact: Jodhpur pants were originally made so the rulers of Jodhpur (in India) could ride comfortably while hunting or playing polo.

  1. That was a good idea to make the muslin pants, I like your fun fact!
