Scooter pants! I would have to make these pants just for the name of them!! They are from Ottobre 02-2010 and are pattern no. 2. They pair these pants with the Linnea top (No. 1) and I have done exactly the same...

I did make a muslin of these pants and removed some excess fabric from the front crotch. If you can see it, this is the alteration on the pattern tissue.
I think I may still need to scoop (?? never sure of the terminology) it a bit more. I think there is still a bit of puffiness there. Any tips?? Here is the pics on me..
and the back... excuse the bra strap (why doesn't the photographer never notice these things??)

I like these pants and the top and think I will wear them a lot. I will try pinning the front seam in a bit more (or maybe I should baste instead of pin!!) and see if that helps with the excess fabric.
Next up I am sewing for the mini wardrobe contest on pattern review. The pieces I have chosen work in with these two pieces so I am really hoping I can build myself a cohesive wardrobe.
The plan ...
Like everyone who enters this contest I am not sure if I will make the deadline as I have a week's holiday planned toward the end of the month, but I will give it my best shot.
Ciao! the contest has started and I need to get to my cutting table!
