I have a 29" waist and a 34" inseam. It has been almost impossible to find pants in my size in the last several years. For some reason I used to be able to get them anywhere. So I guess if this project works out, I will be making my own pants from now on. I am making the size 36 which has a 30" waist. I believe this will work the best, because I don't want to squeeze into the 28" waist pattern. I also decided to make the straight-leg, instead of the boot-leg.
This project started because I found some great material at the thrift store. It is a brown lightweight-denim. Then, I went to Walmart to buy the thread and zipper to match(Dogwood is the color). I think those two items cost more than the fabric. I haven't decide on the button yet.
First, I washed and ironed the fabric. Then I cut it out with the pattern. The pattern and instructions seem straight forward.
That is enough for today. And of course, nothing is more fun than going to the thrift store in my 1958 Lincoln Premiere.
