You know that voice? The one that tells you to stop being lazy, and trace that Burda out already, rather than wasting time getting the Simplicity pattern to fit right? For a change, I listened.
So, last night, rather than cutting out the Amazing Fit 12-Slim, I traced out BWOF 08-2007-110 - a petite size, straight-cut pant. This is a pant with a side zipper, but I'm going to alter it so it is a fly-front. Countless RTW pants have convinced me that a side or back zipper on a pant is just weird. (Though, of course, a lot easier.)
Unfortunately, I don't get to sew up this puppy until Friday evening, earliest. A friend is moving to Denmark, and tonight, I'm going to give her clothing advice. (I'm not sure why.) Tomorrow, I've social plans, aargh. So - no finished pants till the weekend.
