Grey pants – Vogue 2948 #2

Fixing the front crotch curve

My second take on Vogue 2948, the pants pattern used in Craftsy Pant Fitting Techniques by Sandra Betzina. My wearable muslin was not too bad, the thing that I need to do was fixing the horizontal lines across the front.

The first thing I did was releasing the side seams a bit around the waist to hip area. I noticed several lines radiating from the crotch, so the area might need more room. To do this, I reduced the front curve a bit to add more room there.

I moved the zipper to the center back because I feel that the side seam zipper on my first version made the pants hang a bit differently on each side. I also added a couple of side seam pockets, the tiny pockets on the original pattern wouldn’t be too useful for me.

The alterations seemed to work, I think my pants don’t look too bad! My fabric has a bit of stretch in it though, so that might contribute to the finished result.

    I really liked your idea to move the zipper to center back. it does look better than your muslin.
    these pants look terrific on you!

    I am trying to decide wether to enrol or not in this class, but I believe it’s a good way to start with pants, don’t you? even with the confusing stuff?
    guess I’ll do it!

    Great pants! I just got this lesson from Craftsy too and I cant wait for my pattern to arrive!
    What fabric is this pair of yours made of? It looks so comfortable and tailored at the same time.

      Hope your great will turn out great!
      My fabric is some kind of polyester and had a bit of stretch. I’m sorry I can’t be more specific though, I bought it already cut in a store that sells OOP and end of rolls fabric so there was no content tag :(

    I love these pants. Great fabric. I am enrolling in this class as soon as I finish this comment. I didn’t like the pattern for this class until I saw your version. Bravo!

    Those pants look amazing!! I started watching the videos for the last night but felt totally overwhelmed!! I think I need to do the things as Sandra does them instead of just watching it like a movie. Anyway, the pants look PERFECT!

      I watched all of them first and I agree that it was overwhelming. So many things to remember! Then I had to go back several times because I’ve forgotten stuff…. :P
      Thank you for the comment Kyle!

    Great fit! And great job with that rear zipper- I was actually looking at the pics wondering where you put it at first! Didn’t even see it.
