What did I have fit? Jeans. Yeah I still want to make my own. I decided to go back and retrace the original Hot Patterns Dressy Jeans. They were so over fitted by the time I threw in the towel that starting over seemed a good choice. I made up two muslins and took the second one with me. I was OK with the back but the front crotch was giving me fits again. He took a look at my back first and was kind of puzzled as to what I wanted. His comment was that jeans will buckle at the knee like this. Then I turned around and showed him the buckling and extra fabric there (this is not that easy to see in this photo, but trust me, there is too much fabric at the front crotch). He turned back around, reached under my crotch and took a tuck. The excess fabric in front had disappeared. that's it. I also had him place my back pockets. I sewed up another muslin with the change and hopefully then I'll be able to make my own jeans. Sewing up jeans is fun and easy, it's just the fitting that's been a bitch. I think that a lot of the issues I had where really of my own making. Jeans just can't be perfect in back, especially on a woman with an ass as flat as mine! But, I think I can get a flattering pair, well I hope so.
This is the muslin I took to KK.
More fitting next time.
