Today I will offer you a very detailed and kind of intimate glance over my shoulders: After having worn my Guido Maria Kretschmer inspired pants last time I decided I will first wear them again when I had totally revised them… They were so much oversized you could either say they were strictly too loose and didn’t fit!
So I did this diligent revision work yesterday (took me about 4-5 hours, including the mistakes I made during the work…).
I separated it down to a very early stage of completion, indeed: Separated the waistband, the zip, the pockets and opened the side seams again. To separate such a crepe wool fabric it is very important to do this with maximum caution to not cut a hole in the fabric.
To revise garments so basically it’s almost the same amount of work than to sew something new – with the advantage to know more or less exactly how this revised piece will fit afterwards. Unfortunately a revision doesn’t save you from making mistakes – so did I:
Right when I was about to close the side seams after having sewed the pockets again I recognized I had turned them inside out (???). So if this would not have been enough work, I needed to separate them once more and attach them correctly afterwards…
Finally, they could have been a little bit more loose, but due to my experience with this natural fabrics the material will widen when wearing, so hopefully the fitting will then be completely perfect.
