Let's start out explaining the obvious--- construction details. The hem was a perfect lattice edge finish. Done on my serger, by way of suggestion from Carol of "G-CAS! Sew Excited! when she taught a few things about finishing knits on periscope last month. I have seen this done on many garments, but never thought to use it as a hem on pants. Needless to say, it works very well for this style palazzo pant. The settings she gave me to get this look did not work for my machine. So, it wouldn't help for me to give you all the details for my machine, except to say, I used the #7 stitch and followed the directions in my manual. If you want to do the same, you will need to make sure you have a rolled hem stitch and possibly change the differential feed and stitch length. Basically, play around with the stitch until you get this look by "Really" stretching the fabric as you sew.
Fit-Friday LIVE!™ Online class that I host every Friday night. My students voted the pants should be hers after they saw how well they fit her compared to me. Aaaaggh...?!! What???,,..... why did I use her as a model. I loved the colors of these pants, I cut the pants for myself. The measurement were meant for my hips, 44", not her hips, 56" inches. At this point I remembered that when something stretches that much....it also means the "ease" is there for any size above your base measurement multiplied by the percentage and added to the original measurement to tell you that those are the sizes the garment will "stretch" to fit. i.e.. 44x150%=66" That means that these pants will stretch UP TO 66"inches. So, if you are 44", 50", 55", 60", or 66", then these pants will fit you. Cool right? Well, that's cool for my child, but not for me.
Looks to me like she has the expression on her face that says:::: "I WoN!!!" Please tell me you don't love yourself some ITY knit? Tell me I'm not alone in my contempt for that fabric, please.
