I'm in desperate need of trousers beyond jeans. I've gained a little weight and didn't relish facing up to it by sewing pants. Necessity has finally over-ridden vanity.
I decided to give the StyleArc Cassie Pants a go. Style Arc rates them as "medium" difficulty. I would rate them as "easy." These are more glorified leggings than trousers. I would never wear a short top or anything tucked into them. For me, they are perfect paired with tunics and long shirts and sweaters.
|Here's how I'll wear them.|
|Gulp, here is the back view.|
Next time I will
1. Use a lighter coloured fabric to show off all the patchwork
2. Use heavier fabric to hide the lumps and bumps since the fabric will be lighter
3. Raise the waist in the back 2 inches
4. Use a less stretchy fabric because I didn't like the bagginess through the thighs (Now there is a phrase I don't utter often, lol!)
Both Robin and Shams have made these pants. Their versions turned out really well.
I hope to show you a second effort soon!
