….. my first pant with home-made fly.
The camera can't picture the true colour. It's a plain red.
This is a winter pant made of double coated cotton. I thought it would be nice to make Pelle another warm pant, as it’s supposed to be winter here. Right now, it’s more like a Novemberstorm coming over, but I want to be prepared.
I used the same pattern as for the brown pants, because of the great fit. (Ottobre 5/2006, # 19, size 122), with a few minor modifications. As the cotton is not stretchy I had to sew a zipper into it. The last time I made a fly was a few years ago, during sewing lessons. (I always have to thing about Marty McFly, when I read the word. He was the character in the Back to the Future movies). Since I don’t attend lessons anymore, I was out on my own. I carefully followed the instructions in the magazine and it worked out so fine, I could hardly believe it. No puckering needed.
For the waistband I followed instructions from an old book I have
and now the pant is done. I so hope Pelle will like wearing it.
The next project is a matching sweater. I'll keep you posted.
