I am happy to report, the Built by Wendy City Shorts are now complete! Everything else went together without a hitch!
I supposed, however, that these pants will have to become a wearable muslin – because there is some major alterations that need to be done before I call this a good fit. Check out the major gaposis going on in the back of these babies:
Now if I pull these pants down about 2 more inches, they fit fine, but then they become ultra low rise and the butt is a bit baggy (and who wants that). No, I’m just going to have to adjust these, which is fine. The waistband needs fitting and I would contour the rear a bit so there’s not so much loose fabric going on there too. I would also make this again in a size 8 and not inbetween an 8 & 10 pattern range (which my sizing really puts me in).
All in all, I still really love these pants and intend on wearing them – gaps and all. I’ve posted my review of the patern over at Pattern Review.
