My not-wearable pants muslin

Well.... it all looks fine until I have finished the pants and put them on. Disaster! 
I promise to show them so here it is...

I decided to put them aside and start to work on something different. It is frustrating -  I will wait for better times...

At this moment I have made the muslin for a man’s jacket for my DH. He is not so patient so it will be difficult to fit it. It will be a long project.

In between - to feel better - I will start on the Marfy dress – more information you may find on my blog soon.

Happy sewing!

So sorry about your pants.. It is so frustrating to me too.. Good idea, to put them aside and sew something else.
I have been trying to talk myself into sewing some pants..But..just don't want the hassle,ha

Thanks! I have to rest from this experience and make few nice projects - dresses, skirts, tops - the summer is coming (in the end) so no time for long trousers :-)

redpointtailor said...

Yeah... it is (was) a very good experice (different fabric different results) however it is just waist of my time at this moment. Let's sew some summer dresses :-)

Take your time. Learn for the mistake. Move to something else and then, you'll be able to come back with a fresh look :)

Truer words were never spoken-"different fabric, different results" You are really close though. and I know you'll come up with a wonderful pair of pants after you take a break. These fit well in the waist and high hip. Can you scoop the crotch curve a little and release some of the pulling?

SarahLizSewStyle said...

Yes, different fabric, different results. These are so nearly there, but a break will do you good. I do runs of trouser muslins, to learn how they work, then take a break and do something else. When I do the crotch area now, I tend to leave a large allowance and gradually resew ( Large machine stitches or hand tacking) until I get it close to the right shape. Then I cut the fabric away and finish the garment.

SarahLizSewStyle said...

PS Not sure how much fabric you used - about 2 yards?

SarahLizSewStyle said...

Oh, and good luck with your impatient husband's project :) Brave Beata:)

It is a great experience. Fitting on someone else would be/is much easier.
I am taking a break - definitely :-) Thanks for advice.

redpointtailor said...

Thanks ;-)

redpointtailor said...

Thanks for advice - I will try after the break :-)

it's about 1,6 yards fabric.

redpointtailor said...

Thanks a advice. I see what you mean (well - I felt as well :-) think I will first take the waste belt off, then check how it sit. Then I will scoop the crotch curve - if still necessary. But first - break :-)

What a great community! :-)

I just made a pants muslin. They are only marginally better than this, I think. We will persevere!

redpointtailor said...

Wonderful. Of course we will persevere! Success with your pants! :-)
