Damn you, Straight-cut Sarouel Pants! Damn you!
The hemp pants are unwearable. Check it out. I have to laugh, otherwise I’d cry:The waist is so enormous that there is no way to gather that much material into any kind of waistline. Maybe if I were pregnant or had a very pronounced “apple” shape, this would be OK. But sheesh. I mean, I am in the Japanese Hippie Doomsday Cult all the way, but this is asking too much. I added some darts, I trimmed the sides down, all to no avail.
I’m particularly galled because the hemp for this project was expensive and was tough to sew. I needed four upholstery-sized needles to construct these pants – and I hadn’t even finished the seams yet.
Well, at least I learned a few things:
- Hemp sucks
- Sarouel pants suck
- Hemp + sarouel pants suck the big one.
