Camuto’s Stretch Woven Pant (Silhouette Patterns 3218)

I did not intend to work on this pattern, well for ages.  I really was thinking of making the other new Silhouette Patterns blouse and wrap patterns and then after getting your input, I would compare my new Oct Bowl  to 5682 View B and make some more changes.  Might even make a new muslin — of 5682. But I am tired of fighting with 5682–3 muslins 30 fittings. I’ve done so much I can’t keep it straight.

And, I’m all fired up over the Fall SP patterns. I was especially excited during the Weekly Broadcast by the description of  the pant as …a slimmer pant drafted especially for stretch wovens finishing with a 12″ hem circumference…. Oh be still my beating heart. ” Exactly what I have been hunting for to wear on my plus sized body!  But I have to say I am tired of making pants muslins. Muslin after muslin. Fitting after fitting. Trying this. Trying that.  I am tired of this nonsense.  Wouldn’t my time be better spent making the 2 other new Silhouette Patterns?

Sigh, I was really drooling over the Camuto pant. So I said “OK. Make 1 muslin. Limit it to 6 fittings. It it isn’t near perfect at that point, trash it for a time when I don’t have other exciting patterns in hand. (I have all 4 of the Peggy’s new pattern, plus one from last year. Not to mention the POM’s in the file that I’m not interested in making.)
