Sometimes You Need Pants Too

9 Feb

Alright, bear with me as I share yet another Craftsy bargain.  I swear I don’t get any money from them! In fact, they keep luring my money away from me with these awesome classes…

So today, the discount is for another couture-level class(!). This one is Jean-ius: Reverse Engineer Your Favorite Fit. The class is 50% off, making it quite irresistible to my bargain-loving soul. The course covers how to draft a pattern from a pair of pants which already fit well. You don’t have to deconstruct the garment to create your pattern (shoo!).

I’ll be interested to try this one out.  I tend to wear dresses and skirts a lot, but that’s partly because finding pants that fit is quite a challenge.  I’m sure no one else can relate to that. 😉  So the idea of making my own pants to fit these long legs is appealing.  I’m curious to learn his techniques for a good fit — commercial patterns for pants have generally intimidated me because I know there’s a lot of room for error on those.  So using a pair that fits from the get go seems much more logical to me.

I’m also intrigued to learn how one can draft a pattern to duplicate an existing garment.  Imagine the possibilities! I could repro any of my favorite garments. That has always been a fantasy of mine. No more dilemmas about how much to wear a certain item in case it wears out.

And thus my Make It List grows longer…

    Hey Anna! It is $79.99 right now. I suppose I missed the sale. I’ll keep an eye on it, though!
