Vogue 8719 Pants Summary

I finished the wearable-muslin for my Vogue 8719 pants.  Besides the gaping pocket problem, they went together rather nicely.  There are a couple of things I will change when I make them again.

First will be a different style front pocket.  I don't want to deal with gaping pocket issues again.  Since my fix was to release stress from the pocket seams by removing the darts, I will add the darts back.

Second will be finishing the fly and facing differently.  The pattern did not call for any kind of edge-finish.  I serged the fly which worked fine, but I want a little more refined look.

Third will be to have more fabric overhanging the zipper.  The zipper is covered, but not by much.  I think the fly looks great.  I hope I can make this little tweak without any issues.

Fourth will be to have a snugger fit around the waist.  Adding the darts back will take care of this.

These are small tweaks, and in my mind a good pattern since the overall fit is good.   I am going to move on to the jacket muslin now.

Here is my photo shoot.  I wanted to show these pants are versatile.

100 degrees!!  Let me out of this jacket!

I would like to thank Max for being patient with me as I did this on his walk.  Also thank you to my photographer, Joe.

My next posts will be about the jacket muslin.

Thanks for stopping.
