Let's talk Pants people...

Friends,


I'm sure some of you can relate...big butt + thighs + smaller waist = God's sun smiling down onto the crack of your BEE-hind without the aid of a good belt.

This is DEFINITELY a worldwide epidemic!  I googled "small waist big butt jeans" and found countless  posts and pics (no comments on the unsmallness of my waist please.  Thank you. :)) 


Why oh why does it have to be like this...

Please ignore my crude illustration...Photoshop, Illustrator and I have not come to a mutually beneficial agreement (aka...I suck at it)


Rather than this...

Look at that  pant WAIST!  Gives me something to dream about!  One day, it shall be like this for us all!!! Anywhoo...I digress.  Long story short, I'm tired of having to wear a belt ALL the time.  Sometimes I like belts over my tops and it's very awkward when you have a belt for your pants, belt for your shirt AND a kangaroo tummy  (for those of you who don't know...see below for kangaroo tummy):


So I'm venturing into the pants world.  Pray for me you guys. Hopefully I come out of this with all my hair and the most wonderfullest pair of pants in the WORLD (at least for me)! 

I leave you with some real life examples of perfect pant fits (from the front...crotch fit is JUST as important!!)...

  1. I'm sending you good energy for the pants project! Have you heard of Steph at http://3hourspast.com/ ?? She was drafting pants blocks according to your measurements (for a fee, of course) and helping people with the process on-line as part of her consulting dressmaker service. I don't know if she's still doing it, since now she started a pattern business, but I think it would be worth it to contact her. Or at the very least read all of her detailed posts about making trousers!

  9. I'm not brave enough to make pants but I hope yours turn out well! There are these two pins on pinterest that I always see that might be helpful to you about the gap at the back..

  10. I completey know what you mean. My measurements are 42-28-43 and I have never had a pair of pants that fit properly that I didn't make (or alter) myself. It is very irritating that designers don't make clothes that fit a shapely woman, just small sizes and plus sizes. Someone needs to design for a curvy booty!!!
