Stylarc has nailed my crotch curve and it is sooo nice to be able to make a pants pattern right out of the envelope.
So this last week when I discovered some grey Bengaline fabric on my shelves (alert finding fabric you can't even remember buying is not a sign of early onset anything, just a symptom of what "add to basket" can do to a fabric collection) I decided to try a new pattern for stretch woven.
Here is the lineart for the Margaret's:
A nice simple pant with darts in the back to reduce the elastic bulk.
These are obviously as easy a sew as you can get. I made the 12 right off the printer.
Here is my version. Due to the stretchiness of the Bengaline these are really comfortable. I would note too that compared to other Stylearc pants the crotch is cut high and close to the body, much like a jeans fit, which actually helps the pants move well.
|The bengaline is pretty stiff of course and that shows in the creases, but really for everyday pants, to be worn in this very kitchen as illustrated, I think they are great|
|The internet is the place where you put up pictures of your backside and consider this useful|
I am not going to bother showing you all my pairs of wide legged Jalie pull-ons, not much different, but I am going to show you one pair again so you can see the contrast in leg widths between the two patterns, and different fabric types - the Jalie's are drafted for wovens and as a consequence there is are more gathers around the elastic and more drape.
IMO a girl needs more than one style of pants in her repertoire:
