Black cord for my black machine!

IMGP0429As I have already mentioned, the holidays have been a great time for me to finish some of my sewing projects. One of these project is a cord pant for the winter season. I bought some black cord long time ago and I had many ideas what to do with it. I did not really plan to make some pants for myself since I don’t like to wear black, but it’s winter here and the streets are really dirty, so a black cord pant is just perfect for this season.

I made a picture of my sewing machine, so that you can see what machine I’m working with. It’s a Singer anniversary version, not really a cheap one, but on the other hand not professional enough as I would wish it to be to sew really thick fabric.

I’m not always in the mood to record and picture every step of my projects, so you will get to see basically the finished pants in my post. I’ve chosen a loose fit with a low crotch. That’s how I love to wear my pants the most. I know that a lot of men wear tight or skinny pants, but that’s just not my thing. If you need a pattern you can buy a pattern and manipulate it or you can transfer your pattern from an existing pant that fits you well. The best choice still would be to make your own pattern by using your own measurements. I think that every of these three ways is ok as long as you achieve the fit that you are looking for.IMGP0984IMGP0981IMGP0986I did not have my new fabrics yet, so I had to use leftover fabric for the pockets. I’ve found some nice beige linen. I think it makes the pants look interesting. My zipper was a little bit too short, so I added two buttons on the waistband. I love the high fit of the waistband, it’s very comfortable and it give the pants a classic look.IMGP0979 IMGP0977I’m looking forward to experiment more with the fit of pants and to create more pieces for myself. What do you think of the fit of my cord pants? Do you like it or not?

    I like it because 1. the fit looks right on you; 2. you are comfortable and happy in what you are wearing and 3. you made good use of what was available. I would think that with a slightly lower crotch these pants are very easy to wear–comfortable just like a favorite pair of pajama bottoms.

  2. I’ve drooled over this machine before. I think it’s so cool! I do already have a really nice one that I love though…I could never abandon it just for looks! : )

  3. What a beautiful sewing machine, and the pants look great! You’re very talented!

  4. What a gorgeous machine. My mum used to own a very old manual model from this brand which is no longer working.

  5. Great pants, but it’s the machine that caught my eye! Sorry.
    I used to have an old Singer treadle machine and would love to have one again. Once when we were away, the roof leaked all over my machine; the veneer peeled up beyond fixing and the metal parts all rusted. I have thought about my poor machine so often since . . . I do have an antique electric Singer portable, with a lovely bentwood cover. It was given to me by an uncle; it had belonged to his first wife and he no longer could use it. I will always treasure that one!
    Seriously, I do like the fit of the cords and I think the pockets lend a nice touch, too. ~ Linne
