March FNSI project. I never got around to posting the second muslin because I was discouraged that it didn't come out quite right. This time, I re-drafted the pattern from scratch, with a deeper "J" on the front pattern piece. I also made the back waist a little higher than the front, and I tried out little side vents at the outside leg hems (not visible in the photo). It worked! I think they fit pretty well: they are comfortable standing and sitting, aren't to tight across the rear, and the waistband is at an appropriate height all the way around!
Now I just need to wash the giraffe and polka-dot lining fabric, and I can make the real ones!
Head on over to Handmade by Heidi to see what other people accomplished last night.
