It is a rare thing that I do custom sewing. Especially custom clothes.
But, when my sister-in-law requested these pants, I figured, 'Why not? It'll be a fun challenge!'
First of all, kudos to those who do custom clothes all the time. I don't think I could.
I had nightmares that the fabric I ordered wasn't enough--that I wouldn't be able to match stripes.
The next morning, I laid out the pattern pieces on the fabric to make sure. Whew!
I used the Hudson Pants by True Bias.
The fabric is a Ponte De Roma from Girl Charlee. (Emerald Green Red Ethnic Diamond Rows Ponte De Roma)
I'm quite pleased with how the pattern went together.
I did have to add about 5" to the length at the lengthen/shorten line which was an easy adjustment.
I was a little worried about the waistband--adding the drawstring with button holes. Only because I was afraid to mess up a custom order and I wanted it to be perfect.
Now, I just need to make myself a pair of Hudsons.
