Vogue 8774…again!

I must say, I really love this patten. I have gone from thinking that I would never be able to make something like jeans, to wondering why it took me so long to even try to make them. While I haven’t perfected the fit just yet (there are a few tweaks I will make the next time), they are comfortable, easy to wear and actually easy to make (once you get the hang of it). I am definitely a jeans and T-shirts kind of girl for the most part, but I like to have some colors that I can’t always find in ready-to-wear. So making them is the perfect solution for me. I did this latest pair in a little over a day.  I made these in a size 14 with the only alteration being adding a dart to the back yoke and adding darts to the back waistband (to eliminate the gap). I think I want to try tapering up to a 16 in the thigh to the knee at least, but leaving the waist and hip at the 14. I’ll have to see how that works out the next time.
