Alright then. I have to say now, that the object here is not so much what I made, but the fact that I made something.
That being said, Frida needed some new pants, so I digged up the Vilkas pattern from Ottobre, that I used a few times before, and this time I went with a soft and warm, pink velour. I made them the same size as before, except slightly longer than earlier – and they fit fine. If anything, they’re a little bit big. I think I proved, that this is a versatile pattern, right? 😉
I’m happy with the result, and more importantly – I did some sewing, and it felt pretty good! 🙂
I’m getting several questions on the waistband, so I want to share the source for the instructions. Charlene from the Ottobre Group did a photo tutorial on the subject a while ago. It explains how to serge on the elastic, and I wanted to give it a try, even though I normally use my sewing machine for that. It worked really well, so this is definitely a recommendation!
