Terra… the winter edition

Firstly, I didn’t sew these Pattern Fantastique Terra Pants, but boy did I enjoyed wearing them in winter and spring.  They tick the comfortable but stylish box very nicely.

I commissioned these pants to be sewn by a dressmaker when I was having a busy time in the middle of 2018.

And to tell you the truth, if I had sewn them myself I wouldn’t have selected this fabric as matching fine plaid terrifies me.

The dressmaker fully lined the pants, including the waistband, as the wool was just a touch scratchy.  I’ll be wearing these pants for years to come!

The pants were sewn in size 12 (to accommodate my thick waist!) and lengthened by 1.5″ (4 cm) as cold ankles in winter don’t thrill me.

The fit on my behind was improved thanks to a flat bottom adjustment.

And I’m going to finish with a photo that expresses total Terra Pant smugness!
