I'm excited to share my first completed project since starting this journey with you all earlier this month.
I wanted a pair of leather leggings/pants. So I made some! :)
The pattern is originally McCall's 6173, but there are so many tweaks and changes that the pattern is probably unrecognizable. I guess the only thing that matters is that the pants fit my body the way I like!
I've made several other versions of these pants (even though the pattern is for leggings), but this may be my favorite (for now!).
|Better pics next time! Promise!|
One thing I would change for the next time I make these pants is to increase the width of the fly zipper. It seems a little shallow to me.
Also, just an FYI for anyone interested in making these pants as leggings (aka as they are intended!) - if you're actually using a stretch material like legging are made of, go down a size! The reason this pattern has morphed into a legging/jegging item is because the original leggings I made were LOOSE!
Check all measurements! Especially your ankle since as you can see, these fit around my ankle like slim fit pants, and not a legging!
