I finished 2 pairs of pants last week. Since I'd just made the same pattern over the summer, I didn't try them on during the construction process. They're not as large as Lisa's but I can't wear them. Every time I breathe, they slip just a little lower. Fortunately, my hips aren't so small, that there was any danger of embarrassing myself! I've lost almost 10 pounds, but I didn't realize it would make a difference. I'll take the waistbands off and take up the side seams. I'll be suited and booted most of this week, so I won't be wearing them anyway.
