The goal is to make pants that are both comfortable and look good. I've read books, researched, taken on-line classes, tried various fit alterations, and made many, many test pants. And rarely have I been happy with the results. But This pair comes pretty close.
This is an old BWOF magazine pattern, from March 2006. It's just a basic trouser pattern with fairly slim legs. It has front pockets similar to jeans pockets. I made a size 44.
My fabric is olive green stretch woven that I most likely bought at Joann Fabrics. I've been labeling my fabric for several years and since this wasn't labeled, it's been in my stash for quite a while. Since it has lycra in it, I was afraid they might really stretch out while I was wearing them. But after wearing them all day, they stilled looked pretty good.
Alterations I made: I lengthened the side seams by adding 1/2 inch to the top of the waist on front & back and I added 1/2 inch to the back crotch point.
My main fit issue in both RTW and self-made is a fold/wrinkle under the seat. It's less in this pair, but still there on the right side. I feel like I'm making some progress.
