I made boy clothes lately. School ‘free’ uniforms, and now, pants. It’s not easy to make them the right way. Of course, it looks ok but actually, there were small mistakes and ‘imperfection’. It’s quite tricky to sew this kind of ‘seamless’ pattern on the opener side. I also forgot that my teachers once taught me wasn’t correct. I forgot to correct that when cutting the fabric. Well, it’s wearable alright but definitely not ‘correctly’ sew.
I made pants too. Three pants then the last one is the best! Haha. Seems like the pattern I got from my teacher is kind of ‘regular’ shape of pants which is it is really difficult for me to change it into more fit style. May be i can change but it would take lots of trial. I don’t have time! After modifying the pants ONCE, i decided to use another pattern I got from my sewing bible. It is the best! Somehow the formula seems weird but really it works! Looks like the writer is really an expert and have lots lots lots experience. I have never seen something like this before. *I can’t reveal the formula. Please get your own book. The writer’s name is WANCIK. It’s not in english though. So may be, it can’t be used internationally 🙁 . I don’t even know if the publisher republishes it again. I haven’t seen it in a while in bookstore. May be some people spread it in internet. I don’t do that. I don’t want to get in trouble with the law.*
My boys leg shape from waist to feet, they are thin. So bony TAT. It’s hard to make quite fit pants. The pants I made are still a bit lose on the leg but ok on the waist. I used stretch on the waist, too but if i didn’t use it, it was ok too. I used type of stretch band which has holes so we can control the length of stretch by slipping the button into one of the holes. It’s a very good idea about using this kind of stretch for kids pants as they will growl and the stretch quality usually depreciates along with time. Yet, for ‘neat’ and very formal pants, I won’t use this. Haha. Although, it won’t be seen from outside, I don’t feel it’s 100% neat. Must take a pic and show the stretch band/tape someday and put it here. It may be difficult to imagine what kind of stretch or what kind of rubber i’m talking about.
There is also a web i would like to promote. They sell downloadable patterns. I don’t use their pattern though as i can make it myself and love to do it, yet, for some people who don’t like making pattern and just want to sew, you might want to check out https://fitinline.com/product/pattern/ (this is not in english either but may be since it’s diagram, it’s more understandable)
