As most people know sewing requires commitment, concentration and precision, three things I'm not really into, but desperately need to brush up on in order to up my sewing game.
I found this uncut, unstained, 100% pristine pattern at a charity shop recently, paired it up with some old leatherette and hoped for the best in my attempt at making a pair of culottes.
From the left clockwise:
-retraced the pattern on pattern paper and pinned it down on the fabric
-cut the pattern out and pinned the front pleats and pockets together
-proceeded to sew the pieces together
-added the waistbands to the front and back
-put the elastic into the back waistband
After sewing the front and back pieces together, all I had to do was hem the bottom, hand-sew the fasteners onto the waistband and trim any flyaway threads.
