“Beautiful Things Happen One Stitch at a Time”
I made a commitment this summer to cut at least one commercial pattern each week and to modify it base on my sense of style. I always wanted an extra wide leg culotte pants to rock before the summer ends and came across McCall 7131.
I wanted my culotte a bit more wider so I decided to cut a size 16 and add an extra set of pleats in the front. In addition, I decided to adjust the waistband to 14 and it still was at least 2 inches more than my waist measurement and I had too much room and had to cut an inch off each side . Next time, I will definitely cut the 12/14 and make a few slight adjustments to the pattern.
This was an easy sew but the waistband was a bit challenging as I am not use to the technique as stated in the pattern. I plan to make this again probably in a pants the next time around and stick the technique that I know.
