ETA - I found the image on the Russian site, but seriously, Burda, WTF?
The newest plan? BWOF 02-2010-102, the proper, non-optimistic size this time, with some measuring of the width of the pant before I cut, and some fly-front alterations. I'm hoping that this will be it.
On the other hand, I am slowly figuring out how to sew fly-fronts and pant pockets without undue panic, so this journey is totally worth it.
Except, of course, I have no pants to wear.
At times like this, I keep reminding myself of sewers like A Sewn Wardrobe, who made at-least 5 muslins for her sheath dress.
Incidentally, BWOF - WTF? How the heck do I find and link to line drawings anymore? I don't have either the time or the patience to search the Russian/French/German sites for this, perhaps the English one could stop sucking?
