My summery weight Landers
A review of True Bias Lander Pant and Short
The Landers are an itch I’ve wanted to scratch for ages.
These are the cropped leg version, although not actually that cropped on my 5ft 3 frame.
I feel I’m channelling Carey Mulligan from The Dig set in the 1930’s in this outfit.
I wanted a loose fitted pant. I didn’t want the fabric distorting at the button fly. There is zip expansion back available too.
I graded from a 10 at the waist to a 8 at the hip.
The outer leg seam is purposely 1 inch wide to allow for adjustments to be made. But remarkably when I tried them on at basting stage ( the pattern tells you when) they were absolutely perfect, with no adjustments.
However I soon became unstuck when I basted on the straight waistband. It just stuck right out, away from my waist.
I didn’t want to unpick the whole waist band so I unpicked the top stitching, unfolded the band and inserted 3 darts which are completely hidden by the belt loops.
I’ll use a curved waist band next time.
There’s more detail and photos on my blog post.
