TNT-Butterick 5941- Take II


















This is the second version of B-5941.
I wrote a post here concerning this B-5941; this is my second version. I wore the pants with the top to work and it was comfortable to work, easy to get on and off. After a 13-hour day the pants was tooo big in the hip, so I will remove a total of 2-inches from the side seam.
Fabric: the fabric was a two-way stretch that was in my stash.
Construction details can be read in my previous post here.
Alterations:
1.    2-inches total will be removed from the hip tapering to nothing at the knee.
2.    ½ will be remove from the crotch depth
3.    I will create two copies of the pattern; one for a 4-way stretch fabric, and a second for a 2-way stretch fabric.
This may seem like too much work, however, for me and the way my brain function it's perfect.

I think it makes perfect sense to draft different patterns for different stretch fabrics. In the long run, that is more efficient than having to alter each time.

You are really doing a great job with pant making. I've got to get back to that.
