So, I've been keeping busy, even though the blog has seen little of it!
One thing that my wardrobe has been missing is well fitted high waist pants. I've had a couple that I made in the past but sadly the last six or seven pounds I put on are stuck right on my belly... so I can wear them... but I can't breathe at the same time.
I decided what I needed most of all was to make a basic sloper block, a pants pattern fitted just for me that I could use to alter other patterns for a great fit every time!
It took quite a bit of time but resulted in these great wide leg 1970s pants! (See below for more about the sloper!)
