This is a beautiful brown, most of the time I don't get this color, but I thought I would make an exception.  The pants fit perfectly, however I believe this is the wrong fabric, in that there isn't enough give.  Also the way the pants fit in the back make me look like I have no behind at all, I look like my behind is flatter than an ironing board.  So I was a bit disappointed.  I will chalk this up to another learning experience about choosing fabric that has a better drape.  As we get older it is apparent that certain kind of fabrics look better on you than they did 25yrs. ago because our body changes. I think I am going to invest in getting knit fabric.  Who knew my behind would change so much lol!  Well it's back to the drawing board.  

It may be that the crotch is too short.  Although I did measure and had to add two inches in the hip area, when I find a mistake like this I tend to be hard on myself.  I will put the loops on the waist band and blue jean button on.  I noticed when I put on a panty shaper the pants look much better, without the shaper the back crotch like it is separating my but cheeks!  I know this is not the right description, but I don't know any other way to put it, the only thing that would hide what I can see, and no one else can is a long shirt or sweater that would hide the back seam.  Other than that I tested them by sitting and it feels comfortable.  This is a Peggy Sagers patter that I call myself altering.  Again I will go back to the drawing board. So so frustrating.

  1. Hi, Brandy. Great site. I don't know about you, but I never put on anything without putting on my Spanx first. They make a world of difference when it comes to fit. I'm not sure how old you are, but someone in their mid 60s like me needs that extra little lift to make clothes fit properly. Happy Stitching!
