A close fitting, low rise, boot cut pant that require a knit fabric. A stretch woven may be used but that requires using a larger size.
Silhouette patterns are sized according to finished garment measurements and not at all like most other pattern companies sizing. They include Misses sizing as well as women's sizing (see here for clearer information)
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?
Yes. These Pants are very simple to make.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the way these pants are fitted through the thigh and then change gracefully to a slight flare below the knee.
I don't love an elastic waist, but I modify the waistband by adding elastic to only the back.
I used a ponte knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I raised the rise by two inches so they end at my natural waistline.
For this palazzo version of the yoga pant, I added about 8inches to the width at the hem. I added 2" to each side of the leg for both front and back of pant.I started 9inches below the waist and drew a line to join this 2"point . I started about five inches below the crotch and drew a straight line to the 2" spot at the inner bottom . See hereClick Here for a clearer explanation.
Since all sizes are included in the pattern, I measured myself carefully and was able to draft my pattern exactly to my body to achieve a great fiT Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I have made these pants about 10 times and will continue to use this pattern whenever I want a knit pant.
This is a real gem of a pattern.Last winter, I used it as the main project for the Sewing Group I mentor. Seven ladies made two pair each of these pants . I measured each, drew up their personal pattern and each and every woman absolutely loved their yoga pants.
