Skinny-Fit Pants

Sew a curve-hugging style for your body

Threads #204, Aug./Sep. 2019

Pants styles, like skirt lengths, change from season to season, but skinny pants are here to stay. From actor Mary Tyler Moore’s capri and cigarette pants to the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s sporty, close-fitting jeans, a narrow-legged style has stood the test of time. This silhouette can be sewn in fabrics such as denim or glitzy brocade, making it all the more versatile.
The key to wearing these pants is the fit. With the proper fit, almost anyone can find a version that’s flattering. If the pants are too tight or too loose, lines and wrinkles can form—and too-tight pants aren’t comfortable to wear.
Learn what makes a pair of pants “skinny,” what the most common fit problems are, and how to make easy adjustments to create the perfect pair for your figure.
