I proudly present you... Hot Patterns Artful Dodger Slouchy Man Pants (what a handful of a name :))
Pants lying flat
Back of pants
The pants are fully underlined in organza
I've used Sandra Betzina's method of underlining and finishing the seam allowances at the same time. This gives the pants a couture look.
And as I said in this post, I've applied everything I discovered by peaking inside men's trousers.
Special hem band at the hem
Facing of fly extension is cut from lining, on the bias and on the double and there is a buttonhole to secure the extension to the pants. The button (you can't see it in the picture) is sewn to the bias binding of the fly facing. Pocket bags are bound too.
"Fake" (meaning there is no pocket bag) double welt pocket, secured with buttonhole and button. I've used Debbie Cook tutorial for this and I absolutely loved it!
For the fly front, I usually follow Sandra Betzina's method. This time I followed Sigrid's tutorial and I liked it a lot.
And this is the pre-made waist band. Remember the yuck Christian Dior logo? I hated it and covered it with a silvery bray pre-folded satin bias ribbon. And I finally managed to order labels!!! Do you like them? I got 144 for 7.95 sterling pounds. Not bad, isn't it?
