This first image shows the natural sit of the trouser. With my small hips and round tummy things tend to fall down. I realise I could make the band smaller - but this is easier said than done and opens another set of problems
I have therefor come to the Conclusion:
|This pattern does not work for me!|
I have chosen another pattern to trial. I shall not give up on the quest for a nicely fitting pair of jean pants that suit my shape ( I didn't realise I was so athletic and boyish looking - I need a few more kilo's I think).
This quest for the perfectly fitting pant may take some weeks I suspect. It is one of my procrastination areas though - a fear of a pants fizzle - so this is my Fearless February challenge (organised by tenthousandsewinghours.blogspot.com.?
P.S. I also found a review of this pattern on sewing pattern review and the reviewer also had trouble with the sit of the band especially. This reassured me in my decision not to attempt this garment after the pretest did not work for me. Of course, this pattern may work for other people - I hope it does, because it does look nice.
