M5710 - The Second Time Around







This is the second time around for these pants. This time I inserted the zipper in the front instead in the back. I wanted a smoother finish in the back. I also slightly narrowed the pant leg.

If you remember, when I first made these pants I followed the crotch alterations given in a Threads magazine issue. This alteration works for me as it provide the right amount of comfort in the crotch area.

This pattern is a keeper!

This is a very sleek look. As soon as I saw you I was thinking..."NYPD" like those sexy police investigators they have on tv. Very nice.

Holy smoke - this looks absolutely perfectly on you. The pants hang perectly front and back...they don't tilt, they don't bag - everything is right.

What a very nice style. You are really absolute in that attire. Thanks for posting this.

Oh Cennetta! Your pants are terrific!! I also used this article from Threads in conjunction with drafting my own pants pattern from a Threads article as well, thereby combining the two articles. I have yet to actually sew up my planned capris (a year later!) but I think you've just given me the project I was thinking about today. I just asked DD#2, "What should I work on next???"
