6440 Update — Old Lady Stretchy Pants No More!

By | January 5, 2016

Okay, when I posted these stretch crepe pants, I referred to them as “old lady stretchy pants.”

The legs were too big, specifically in the back-of-the-knee area. They reminded me of stirrup pants. Not in a cool “they’re back and now have 4-way stretch” way, but in a “you totally wore them in elementary school and it turns out they looked super dweeby” kind of way.

I took in a lot more on back seam–as much as an inch on both sides in places–down almost the entire leg. I also narrowed the rise a bit as well. (Still not on board with the term “crotch.”)

They are much closer to their Funny Face inspiration now!

Nothing to see here, folks, just my new favorite pair of work pants!
