Clover Muslin Version 1

I’m currently sewing the Clover Pants from Colette Patterns, which means I’m two years behind everyone else in the sewing world. This also means that I get to take advantage of everyone else’s fitting issues now that I have finally gotten around to tackling this pattern.

Let’s jump right in and take a look at close-ups of my crotch and behind. I know you’re excited!

First muslin:

The first thing I noticed with these is that I had too much fabric in all the wrong places causing all kinds of mayhem. Also, crotch wrinkles. The back actually seemed okay-er than the front, but the center back dipped down a little bit, especially when I sat down, which is a sign that I needed to do a full butt adjustment.

I essentially need to take about 3 inches off the torso, do the FBA, and perhaps look at the crotch depth and/or length. And maybe a full thigh adjustment. Clearly I’ve got too much in the width department and not enough in the height department.

No matter! I WILL PREVAIL!

P.S. I bought a serger. It’s been in its box for about two weeks now because I am too scared to fiddle with it All those threads! I have a three day weekend coming up so I’m going to try to tackle it then.

  1. You are brave to tackle pants. I wouldn’t know where to begin to do a butt adjustment. Can’t wait to see how it turns out though! Oh and did your serger come with a class? You should take one either way. I definitely would NOT be using my serger so successfully with having taken a class first.

  3. Well for one thing….YOU HAVE NO BUTT! How did that happen when I have enough for both of us and always have. I’ll bet that if you shorten it between the waist and crotch on both the front and back, you might be OK. After all these dang patterns are not made for elfins.
