This is so exciting. A few of us blogger started a fun thing, The Fitting Experiment. We got together with a group of people with completely different body types and sizes. We will all be making the same pattern, so you all can see it on different sizes and bodies. We are still looking to expand the group with more diverse people, so feel free to drop me an email if you are interested in joining us! Make sure to read through to the end, there’s stuff to win too! 😉
Our first pattern was kindly sponsored by Love Notions. We made the Sabrina Slims . It’s a slim fit pair of pull on pants, with a ton load of options. I made the plain version with front pockets, you can add back pockets, there’s also a version with a seam in the front and a slit at the ankle, many options! I made a size 24 waist, 26 hips, 22 sight, 20 calf and I used ponte.
When it was just done it was way too big on my thighs, it’s not an uncommon thing for me, my legs are slimmer then the rest of me and fitting them can be a challenge. I ended up putting them on inside out and pinning out the excess. That helped a ton, but I’m going to need to do a full tummy adjustment on the next pair. I wish I had had time to try that and make another pair, but I got sick and I ended up running out of time. They are not bad at all for a first muslin tho! The pattern comes with a great instruction booklet for fitting pants, so you can use that when you run into fitting issues! A great resource.
