Women come in all shapes, sizes, and styles.
So do pants. Shorts, ankle-length, wide-leg, tapered leg - the variations are almost endless.
But none of them look good unless they fit well. Unless they fit YOU.
At 5'2" and a size 16, I know all too well that "off the rack" pants don't fit every woman. I have to alter ever pair I buy.
It's a never-ending battle!
Making pants, and getting them to fit properly, can be intimidating.
But it doesn't have to be. With a basic pant block, drafted to your measurements, you'll have the basis for pants of any style you like - and they'll all fit perfectly, with no alterations!
And drafting the block isn't as hard as you think.
In fact, drafting a pant block is easier than drafting a dress! There is no sleeve, bodice, or skirt - just a front and back leg pattern. And there are fewer measurements to take!
When you draft a block from your own measurements, you'll get a better fit than using a commercial fitting pattern. You'll have fewer fit corrections to deal with when fitting your block.
And with a well-fitting pant block, you'll have a good, basic pattern from which you can design any style you like!
Make the legs wide, narrow, or shaped (like boot cut or bell bottoms). Make any length you like. Add a shaped yoke or a stylized waistband.
Or combine the pant with a bodice and make a jumpsuit!
With illustrated instructions and over an hour of video demonstrating the steps, we'll take you through the process, step-by-step. Don't worry, we're there to help!
