Butterick 5221

Before I can get started on sewing some core pieces, I decided to sew these pants that I already had cut out.

I made them in a lightweight denim that I treated myself to from Gorgeous Fabrics last year. As I’ve stated before, I have had a problem making pants since my weight gain and was determined to keep trying.  I chose the size based on my hip measurement (which was a shocker and I will not share it) and would adjust the waist later if it turned out to be too big.  Well, fortunately, I seem to gain wait all over proportionately, because the hips fit as well as the waist. I was too excited.  Sorry for the crappy picture, but here it is:

I really like wide legged pants and although they make me look huge in this picture, I’m really happy with the way they turned out.  On to more sewing.
