PANTS CREATED BY JOYCE SIMONS MURPHY AND JUDY BARLUP (VOLUME #168_
Hello – Threads is one of my favorite magazines. Great directions, great photos -and in general, very informative and helpful. Atttention to detail is superb.
However, in volume #168 – the article on “A Great New Way to Fit Trousers” while informative, left me speachless at the end result of the brown pants shown on page 44 and page 48. I have never seen such ill-fitting pants done by professionals as this pair of trousers. The back view on page 48 clearly shows “drag lines” at the seat of the pants and also “drag lines” at the right side seam = clearly too much fabric for a great fit. What was so shocking to me was that three pages were devoted to getting a good fit. They clearly missed the mark. I can’t help but wonder if others noticed this ill-fit pair of trousers. I understand that dressier pants usually fit a bit looser than some more casual styles, but this just “floored” me ! Jan Johnson – Culver Indiana
