I think I’ve mentioned before that I have a hard time finding jeans and pants that I can wear to work (yay Silicon Valley dresscodes). I don’t know why every single store sells low rises, because sitting down means an unflattering view of your butt/undies. Also, it squishes all your fat out of the pants so that it pours over your waistband.
So, I bought, downloaded, printed, and taped together the Anita pants pattern from Burdastyle. I’ve already cut out all the pieces, but had to raise the waistline 1.5 inches to make it medium rise, which made grading the pieces a bit fiddly. Still need to buy all the material — I’d like to make it a gray twill with a slight stretch, but that seems hard to source. Not quite ready to attempt jeans yet.
I’m hoping that posting about this will get me to put together a muslin. In the meantime, you can look at Juebejue’s very cute Anita jeans (she also raised the waistband).
