Self-Fit Your Pants

Threads magazine - 175 - Oct./Nov. 2014 Issue
Article Image
This article from Threads #175 (October/November 2014) by Linda Lee includes everything you need to know to ensure your pants have the perfect fit. We could all wish for a “sewing twin” when it comes to fitting pants. The prospect of doing it alone may seem challenging, but you can achieve a great pants fit on your own, no matter what fitting problems you encounter. A few simple steps yield better-fitting pants, regardless of the style. In this article, I’ll teach you about a few of the most common pants-fitting problems, how to recognize them on your muslin, and how to resolve them. I’ll guide you through finetuning the fit so you can make pants that are comfortable and flattering. You can do it easily all by yourself, no fitting assistant necessary. A camera and mirror, and the guidance provided will help you resolve your pants-fitting issues.
