Not very successful wide pants

Last September I decided that I wanted new pants for my trip in San Francisco. I visualized some comfy jogger pants in print fabric.

Jogger pants outfit (not my photo)

I run to a store and bought a piece of nice rayon, I like to sew and wear rayon in warm season. I didn't know how I cut the fabric but my pants were too short and too narrow at the bottom. And tooooo wide at hips. I used a pattern from old Patrones, issue 305. I made the belt with elastic.

They look not so bad in action and are pretty comfy for biking.

I probably will make them shorter and try to narrow a little bit in the hips area but maybe will just use them for biking to food stores and the library%) I am too lazy usually for remaking and fixing problems in finished garments%)

Should I shorten the pants?

  • Fabric: 1.5m of rayon
  • Pattern: Patrones 305
  • Fabric was bought specially to make these pants
  • Notions: thread, wide elastic
  • Time to complete: 6.2 hours
  • First worn: today
  • Wear again: I thinks so. Anyway I can wear them at home%)
  • Total cost: C$15 per fabric, C$2 per tread and ribbon, C$6 per magazine = C$23

I miss my little sewing blog! I didn't write here for one year. I sewed all this time, I updated my me-made list but didn't write proper posts.

I participated in Me-Made-May last year (all my outfits are in flickr album). I only finished one garment%(

I hesitated to participated this year or not because I knew that I could wear me-made garment every day, I knew that I need to make more separate tops, some shorts for summer and maybe some active clothes for hiking and cycling. But Me-Made-May is soo much fun! So I couldn't miss it!

'I, Sewing Sveta (, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '16. I endeavour to wear me-made or me-refashioned garment each day for the duration of May 2015. Also I will finish 2 new garments and I want to make a proper list of stuff that I need to sew to fill gaps in my wardrobe.'

First day, Drape-Drape t-shirt
