Copying RTW

There are a pair of stretch jeggings I have where I really like the fit of them.  They are kind of straight leg leggings, and I wanted to copy them for awhile now.  I finally got that done this weekend.

When I copy a RTW item I own, I turn it inside out, cover each pattern piece with the sticky Press and Seal, and then mark at the seam with a Sharpie.

Once I have the pieces, I put them on a big piece of paper and cut them out with a seam allowance.  I was going to do the waist a bit different and give it more room in the crotch, so I made those changes here as I was cutting it out. 

All ready for a muslin.

I knew I wanted to use my scuba suede for this project, but wanted to be sure it would fit first.  I used a ponte for the “muslin”, and tried it on along the way.  I needed the rise to be a little lower on this for where I wanted it to fall.

They turned out pretty comfy!
