Wanted: Pants Pattern Testers

  No comments    
Hi there.

If you find these 60's inspired pants appealing. You are welcomed to be my pattern tester. Click here to send me a line and you will receive the PDF pattern in a day or two.

Thank you!


* Woven fabric.
* Fitted.
* High waisted.
*  Invisible side zipper.
* taper legs.
* Two front curved pockets.
* Front and back yokes.

This Pattern has both sewing lines and seam lines.

This pattern is based on standard measurement, so you may need to know a bit about pattern altering if you don't usually find ready made pants fit you easily. 

and you have to not hate PDF patterns.

You will receive a package with sizing and almost a finished PDF pattern file. (It just needs to be polished, and add on changes based on your feedbacks)

I won't be able to provide a detailed instruction at this moment, but I will be posting bits and ends about how tos later on.

Thank you.

Pursuing fashion speeds your life up. now I know.

I woke up around 4 this morning and found out that nobigdill Katy instra messaged me.

It is indeed a big dill!

I thought, well yes I sure would follow Y that is why I made the dress...just it is too long. and

I got up 5:30 to shorten it! it involved with not only shorten the dress, I took the whole lower part off added one more pocket and re did the zipper. 

I am a person who never gets up before 7:30.

and then I thought I might take some pictures when my daughter finishes school we can even go out and take pictures with the tree flowers all around . and they are going to be gone as it is said tomorrow is going to rain.

and Katy's blog is up there already.

I am all rushed up.

all pictures are took in a hurry. I wonder if I did wash my face.

no time to share the untidy pattern today. maybe later.







If you don't have long zippers around, do it like I did. use a shorter one. plus some buttons.
never go to the store. too much temptation!!







It is very cold still, therefore the snow boots. Glad no one saw me rushing madly to put my two layers of jackets on afterwards.
