pants pattern

bluebird | Posted in Patterns on

I am looking for a good fitting pants pattern that is appropriate for business casual.  I can do minor pattern alterations, but it’s easiest when I start with something that is close to what need.  I’m looking for the following features – flat front, fly zipper, sits at natural waist or just a tad lower.  I have a slender, but curvy figure.  Waist is significantly smaller than hips.  I need to get relaxed fit in ready to wear.  Any suggestions?

    I always suggest Burda, because they have the best crotch curve in the business. All sizes are in one envelope, with very subtle gradations between sizes. and they have a complete measurement chart on which you circle your measurements. Then you trace your pretty much customized pattern off that. That allows you to be several sizes: You can have a tiny waist and larger hips, etc.

    It's a good way to start.

    You might like Vogue 7881 Claire Shaeffer's pants. I was able to get them to fit right, I did the darts for shape. They have a nice width to the leg too.
