Well, I used a pajama bottom pattern for my pants and just inserted them in the seam for the side. I haven't seen the costume base pants so I don't know, but I do know they are better than the ones that come on the CB pants for sure.

I do think there are a few people who have used these or similar ones to modify the CB pants though.

There you can see result of test:



I'm surprised at how cleanly you removed the old stripe. I had always thought those old stripes would need to be covered up; not removed so cleanly. Wink

you've inspired me: here's my attempt, using bloodstripe-strip sold on Ebay.

-=====-


step 1: surgically remove old stripes with a seam ripper or "stitch ripper".

step 2: buy machine-embroidered bloodstripe on Ebay



step 3: fold side-edges under, and place bloodstripes on the pants. pin them in place.






step 4: stitch them in place. (stitch sideways; NOT lengthwise).




Razz



RESULT:



using this method, it doesn't really matter if the background of the Ebay stripe matches the pants exactly. it still looks good, as long as the sides of the ebay-stripe are folded under.

(and besides.. the color isn't really that far off; the flash is exaggerating the color difference in those photos)

I would say that is a pretty good compromise to making them by hand, and much better then leaving the CB stripes as they are.

yeah I think so too.
given the three modifications shown in this thread (pin tuck, riding seam, bloodstripe),
then the CB pants are a great option. AND readily 'available' Wink

(( and even though you only need 2/3 to be accepted.. I think everyone with CB pants should definitely add the bloodstripe. it only took about an hour and the results are totally worth it. its a great modification. you won't be sorry you did it))
