Carlos wears corduroy pants to work -he is a postman- and he destroys them in a couple of seasons :-(, so I make sure to construct a couple of them every season. This is my own pattern and therefore a glove for my love's slim body. I used commercial patterns in the past, but I has to downgrade a couple of sizes and the result was not nice. It took some work to make the first, muslin included, but now I have by toile pattern and I can make this real quick. And the result is flawless, in fitting and execution (excuse my modesty:-). The procedures is the following:
- Cutting and marking with tailor tucks
- Interior legs with self-enclosed seams
- Exterior sides with self-enclosed seams (uncomfortable to sew)
- Belt rings and waist band
- Button and buttonhole.
