Lamise Pleated Pants
5 March 2017
A "Lamise" Pleated Pants/Bundfaltenhose, pattern is from www.pattydoo.de. I have printed this pattern long time ago, well actually it was meant for Christmas 2016 and of course that did not happen. I was mainly prioritizing my family's clothing rather than myself and that I lack time as well, my fault also. Anyway, now it did happen yessss! I took the biggest size ever on the pattern and then I analyze it with the existing pants that I have (which is already worn out, as in, actually it is already ruined on the inside leg area due to rubbing of my inner thighs while walking). I went to two sizes smaller basing on the pants that I still have.

I use serger and then sew it with the sewing machine to secure the stitches and to be neater inside the pants. I have not finished the hem because I do not know yet if I will make it exactly my length or to have it folded. I was surprised to find out that it did fit me but not pleased with my body figure which I have been ignoring most of the time. The pants looks good but the pleats don't go along with me because having a big body figure, pleats should be eliminated in my case. Next time I will try disassembling or seam ripping my existing pants and remake such size and also to try loosing weight maybe I will be much more happier with the result of the pants that I will create. :-)
I posted a video about DIY Christmas Sewing Gifts/Ideas 2017 on youtube. This is my third year that I have been posting it but have been d...
