I’m diving in! I’m trying my first pair of pants. It’s Simplicity 2860 Amazing Fit.
I have had this pattern for what seems like a year. I have several “Amazing Fit” patterns but have yet to try one. I struggle to find pants that fit me or are comfortable. I just don’t like the low-riding pants that happen to sit at the biggest part of my belly!
The pattern has three separate pattern sets inside for “slim”, “average” and “curvy.” I will spare you any measurement photos….but will tell you that I’m in the “curvy” category. (All that Couch-2-5K hasn’t made me slim yet…)
It’s very cold and gloomy here in Northeast Ohio, so my pictures are under my CFLs in the studio! I bought a bottom weight from JoAnns. It’s a cotton/poly blend that is supposed to be wrinkle resistant.
I am particularly motivated to try the pants for myself because I’m making a pair of custom pants at the boutique I’m working at. I thought it would be good to work these in tandem, or even ahead of that pair, so I understand the construction techniques. After all, it isn’t rocket science, right?
So tell me, do you want to join me? Have you tried pants? Any tips for me? Horror stories?
