Right after Christmas we started our pattern test for the Tyra & Todd loose-fit pants. It's always so much fun and inspiring to see what the testers make! Which fabrics they choose and which variants they sew. I think they did a really great job this time!
We decided to make a few changes in the pattern, based on their pictures and feedback. So for the final version of Tyra & Todd, we made these changes:
- A new pattern piece for the paperbag waistband. The new one gives a lot more flounce.
- Added length from the crotch down. In most sizes (not the smallest sizes), we added several cm of length, so if you choose size (in length) based on our size guide we feel confident you'll be very pleased with the fit.
- Raised front pocket, just a bit.
- Made back pocket smaller, also raised it a bit and moved it a bit closer to the crotch.
- A bit less width along the hips and legs in the smallest sizes.
- The pant cuffs are a bit more narrow.
Now let's have a look at those pictures! A huge thank you to all generous testers for sharing their pics!
