Last night I started the actual sewing of the pants for Polyhymnia. One thing I've learned: a lot of sewing has nothing to do with needle and thread. There is an inordinate amount of ironing. If you hate ironing, sewing is probably not for you.
Sewing the Crotch
Anyway, the pants now have stay stitching, darts at the waste (basted only), and a crotch. Once Polyhymnia and I have a fitting session, the darts will be adjusted and replaced with permanent stitching, and a waist band and hems will be done.
