I’m about to pull my hair out trying to work out the fitting issues with my Thurlow trousers. I just keep ripping and tweaking and ripping and tweaking. I think I’ve lost all perspective and I can’t even tell if the changes I’m making help or not. Do you ever do this, just doggedly keep working on a muslin, even though you know it’s time for a break (or bed)?
Ugg. So I’m finally taking a break. Here’s where I’m at. Warning, these pics are unflattering and a bit fuzzy. Pretty much exactly how I feel right now!
I think the front is pretty good, except I’ve got an annoying wrinkle/poof at the bottom of the crotch in the front.
See how the fabric poofs out there? (Ignore the top wrinkle, that’s just a fold from my poor pressing.)
I think maybe the crotch needs shortened. I tried pinning a tuck across the front, but I get a camel-toe-ish looking thing going on. So I don’t think that’s the right adjustment.
I missed my sewing class for two weeks, due to the Maui vacation. So I was hoping to be caught up and have my muslin worked out before class meets this week. Anyone have any thoughts? Am I just being too picky??
