The demise of Google Reader in a few months is causing a lot of consternation for a lot of us.

I have been sewing lately, but not for me.

The most recent item is this for my grandson:

I also made a bathrobe for his sister, but apparently failed to get a picture.

There is a lot of discussion on Stitcher's Guild about pants fitting.   I am no fitting expert, but I have given it a lot of thought. 

There are many different areas to take into consideration:

Half front waist measurement
Half back waist measurement
Half front hip measurement
Half back hip measurement
Hip depth
Crotch front depth
Crotch back depth
Crotch length
Thigh circumference

It seems to me that many times people do not take into consideration all of these areas when fitting pants.  Most pants fitting books, articles, etc., do not do a good job taking all of these measurements into consideration.  Nor do most articles give explanations on how to recognize the wrinkles associated with each and how to fix those wrinkles.

This is something I will be doing a lot of studying on in the near future.  It is time for me to start fitting pants for myself.  Wish me luck!

Til next time!
