Pull-on pants and shorts have pockets in side seams and cuffs. Waist has elastic in casing, drawstring, and header forming ruffle. Casing, drawstring, and cuffs are from contrast fabric. Pull-over tank top has a scoop neckline, and armholes and neckline are finished with narrow hems. Pattern includes 1/4 inch (6mm) seam allowances.
I used coordinating quilting fabrics.
Kwik Sew's usual line-up of XS,S,M,L,XL.
I traced and cut a pattern for the bottoms between an L and XL.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the pattern especially because it offers the option of pockets.
I used a 100% cotton quilting fabrics by Moda.
It is called "Freshly Squeezed" and is by Sandy Gervais for Moda (printed on the selvages).
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Because I didn't want the problem of matching diagonal stripes on the outseam of the cuff, I placed what would be the outseam on a fold of fabric. This meant I had to do a little finagling to make sure the cuff was exactly the same size as the lower circumference of the pant leg. (Actually, the pant leg was a little larger but I finessed this by placing the larger/longer length fabric (the pants) against the feed dogs and pulled ever so slightly on the upper fabric (the cuff) to make sure it ended up even--very necessary since I had the cuff and pant already seamed.)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes to both questions.
This is a great pattern. It will long be in my repertoire for pj bottoms and tops.
The pattern includes the stylish addition of contrast fabrics, the usefulness of pockets, and legs that are narrower than your average pj bottom pattern.
I think the waist treatment means the pattern is not suitable for beginners. It can be a little tricky as well as time consuming to sew.
Yardage is 2.5 yards
This is my 12th entry in the FSC2013.
