Blue and Black Vertical Stripe Pants

I have been enjoying a new project.  I am creating custom made pants for someone who herself plays Eridan, a character in a web comic.  I love to get to make these sorts of garments that help to transform people into the web comic characters!


 The only cobalt and black striped fabric we could find was a soft knit.  I reinforced the soft, drapey fabric by stitching it along some of the black stripes to a stretch knit underlining fabric.

Eridan's pants have deep pleats in their front panels.

The wide elastic band lays more smoothly than most elasticized waistbands, and I stitched the elastic inside the band so it cannot roll.  These pants will be quite comfortable to wear!

 One of the ways I prevented the pants from looking pajama-ish was to create invisible hems.

 The back panels of the pants are darted for shape and comfort.

 When the pants are suspended from a hanger, the fabric shows its softness; when they are being worn, they will lay smoothly and Eridan-like.

 Thanks so much to my client, the Eridan-impressionist, for letting me create these pants for the web comic event!
