Yes! I started sewing again, and that feels so good. Carolyn asked whether I had a good holiday, and the answer is yes, I had a good, relaxing holiday. But I would have loved to take my sewing machine. Not this time though.
I promised myself another quiet week from work (hope this will come true), and this afternoon started the pants I promised my daughter. It's number 41 from the Patrones spring/summer issue. Till now I only made one other Patrones pattern, a pair of pants for myself. And I don't speak Spanish so I have to work from pictures and line drawings. That's not a real problem, you just have to solve a few things for yourself. In these pants that will be the way the waistband is constructed, as that is not straightforward.
Main question for me is the sizing, for my daughter we concluded that it would have to be size 44 (which she found awful, in BWOF she's a 38, and this sounded so big). To be sure I cut the pattern with really wide seams, but as you can see from the pictures below, it's really very close. The construction of the seams is only done with the longest straight stitch on my machine, and I did not yet press the sides. All this will be taken out and constructed properly.
I will sew the center back seam as last seam, as I do for my own pants too, which will give me some flexibility for the waist.
