I kid you not, I have a minimum of 5 patterns for this style of pants with various detail differences I.e., pockets/no pockets, elastic cuff, drawstring cuff, etc. Even though I am obviously drawn to this style, I have yet to actually make a single pair. Well that ends today. First with only two required pattern pieces, front and back, this has got to be the absolute easiest pants pattern known to man. AND it actually yields a pretty cool pair of pants.
Pattern Description: Misses/Miss Petite Pants in Four lengths. Pull on pants have elastic waistline casing and self drawstring. I made view C, ankle length pants with elastic leg casings. There is also a version with a regular hem.
Pattern Sizing: Pattern is available in X small to X large(size 4-22)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were great, easy for a beginner.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This pattern has A.LOT.OF.EASE. I mean A.LOT. I had to take out about 2 inches on each leg to get the fit I wanted.
Fabric Used: a Gabardine from FabricMart that I got for $1.99 or $2.99 a yard
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: This design includes a functioning drawstring and elastic waistband which seemed like overkill so I omitted the drawstring.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Maybe once more in black ponte.
Conclusion: This is a quick and trendy look and great for beginners.
