I am determined to lose weight with the help of Weight Watchers. I'm at the heaviest I have ever been, and my eating was out of control. Therefore, I took control by joining Weight Watchers at Work. I am a Lifetime member, but what does that mean when you need to lose 30 pounds? So much for Maintenance!
I decided to make my weight loss public through this blog to make myself more accountable. I have a couple of partners in this endeavor - a coworker, and my stepson. It's so much easier to do this with someone. So far, I have lost 7 pounds, and have 27 more pounds to go. I am confident I can do it.
While losing weight, I still want to sew, so I've been focusing on clothes I can alter while losing weight, starting with pants. I made a pair of capris with my Sure Fit Designs pants kit, and loved the style, so I decided to make them full length in khaki and navy blue. The pocket design is from the new booklet from Sure Fit Designs.
I chose this design because it will be easy to alter during the weight loss without losing the pocket. I can just take it up at the sides. Also, I sewed the waistband with a 3.0 length stitch so it would be easy to remove and did not top stitch. Here's a picture of the pants with a top tucked in.
This is how I will actually wear them.
And here they are in Navy. I love these pants. They are a cotton lycra, so very comfy. I narrowed the pant leg and like the width.
