I added 2 cm, back and front, like this:
That way the crotchline lowers 2 cm as well and that seems to make all the difference. The problems I was expecting didn't occur. This is gonna be my standard alteration from now on. I'm so glad this one worked out. I suck at pattern-alterations, big time!
But this gave me a lot of courage to start sewing more pants.
Here's the result:
Finishing these pants means I have 4 outfits to show you!!!
But that'll have to wait untill the next time. I'm sorry, but tomorrow work starts again and I really have to do some household- / laundry-duties now. I've been neglecting them for the sake of sewing but now it's time to look them in the eyes.
Ending my SWAP means I'm free to start looking at other sewing-projects. I don't think I'll be doing a SWAP again in the near future. After number two I already felt restricted. (I knew if I would sew other things in between that it would take me forever to finish, so I had to stick to the original plan).
A few weeks ago it was secretaries-day (I work as an executive-secretary) and as a gift I received a voucher with which I can get a subscription to a magazine. There were a lot of magazines to choose from but it only took me 1,3 seconds to find my favourite one: Knip-Mode.
I will receive 5 monthly issues, starting this weekend. Can't wait!!! It comes just in time now that I'm ready for new things. And boy, am I ready!
If all goes well I promise to post pictures of my outfits this coming weekend.
So hopefully till then.
