Here is the result - not a pretty sight!!!! But Sarah Liz has a sense of humour and can laugh at herself :)
The front view is even more laughable, except as you can see, I have my seriously unimpressed expression on my face :)
The side view is almost passable:
Well, I have learnt quite a bit from this exercise:
1. I like elegant lines in clothes and do not like skin tight anything - I had no idea I had become so classic in my tastes - the last time I took this much interest in clothes I was young. I think I have moved on!!! (yes, then I was a teenager, now I'm a little older and dare I say it, more experienced in all sorts of ways).
2. If a pattern piece does not look right then it probably isn't.
3. Making a muslin is a really good idea so that if the pattern is not going to work then you can move on without too much heartbreak.
4. This time I nearly enjoyed the process, so I think I am starting to learn something!
Well, the offending pants have been disposed off. I will remove this pattern from my catalogue - it can go to the op shop.
So, although I said this garment would be made to completion, it won't be. I think I will use the little Burda pattern for my slim fit trousers - it does look okayish - modern, but classic at the same time.
This garment did use 1.25 yards of fabric I already did not like from my stash. So some stashbusting has been achieved.
