In the Queue Wednesday


I'm afraid of pants.

Well, actually, I'm afraid of fitting pants. So, when I saw this article in the January 2008 issue of Threads magazine, I said to myself, "Gwen, this is it. This is the approach you are going to try to make a pair of pants that fit."

This seems to be an approach that will work best when done with a friend to help in taking all the measurements, etc. Luckily, my friend Susan is interested in trying this too! :)

I have had this grey, bottom weight fabric, with just a touch of lycra, in my stash for ages - it should be perfect for a pair of comfortable, casual, yet dressier-than-jeans pair of pants.

So, I have the fabric, I have the instructions to make a pattern and I have a friend to tackle this project with me! Now all I need is the nerve...

Don't worry, I'll get to it. It's in the queue... ;)
