Fancypants: What do you want to know?

Your body is unique. Sew pants made to fit it! Beginners Welcome and Encouraged.This blog post is part of the Fancypants Sew-Along. You can catch up on all of the sew-along posts here. You can learn more about Fancypants or get your copy of the tutorial here.

At this point, we’ve talked about choosing your fabric, taking your measurements, and drawing your pattern.

And now I am sitting here, fingers hovering over the keyboard, not really sure what else to say. For one thing, the tutorial takes you through the whole rest of the process from cutting your fabric to sewing your pants. I don’t want to repeat any of that stuff here.

For another thing, there hasn’t been much activity on my previous sew-along posts. Without any comments or feedback, I don’t know if this series has been of any value. For a feedback junkie like me, it’s really really hard to keep going when there’s nothing but silence in return.

So. I’m opening this up to you.

If you are reading along, and if you are enjoying this series, and if you can think of something else you’d like me to explain in more detail, please speak up! I’d be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

And if there are no questions? That’s ok too! It tells me that the pattern is clear enough and detailed enough without any extra hand-holding necessary.

Just in case this is the last post of the sew-along, let me just thank you for reading this far, thank you for buying my tutorial, and wish you many pairs of happy pajama bottoms in your future 😀

  1. I have saved this to read through on vacation. I made a pair years ago and they never fit right. Thank you for this series. I have some vintage sheets waiting to be sewn up into fancy pants. Keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks, Sherry! If you run into any problems when you get around to sewing, feel free to leave a comment. Maybe I can help 🙂
