Pattern Description:
Fitted (below waist) pants have elastic and purchased ribbon drawstring, yoke back, side front seams, no side seams, and pockets
Pattern Sizing:
xsm-med
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Well, I used a print after being inspired by a picture of Burda 208B.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are very good.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I am not sure about the front side seams. I had to alter my pants front pattern to get the seams to move forward to achieve this look. I love the 2 rows of elastic in the waist.
Fabric Used:
100% polyester from Joann fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a muslin before cutting into my polyester. The pattern description says that these pants have side front seams and no side seams. The back pattern piece is quite wide and the side seam is supposed to end up more toward the front. Mine were just slightly forward of the side seam line, but I had quite a bit of ease in front of my thigh area so I split the pattern lengthwise and removed 1/2 all the way down the front. I also took in the side seams 1" in stead of 5/8. I started with the size 12. Also removed 1" at front lengthen/ shorten line but not the back. I just used the back yoke seam to make the sides match up, starting with a larger seam allowance and tapering. I omitted all cuffs and added 1" to the length of view C and made a regular hem. So my pattern is kind of all cut up but I like the final fit.
This pattern definitely works with the polyester and I achieved exactly the look I wanted. Maybe they look a tiny bit like pajamas, but I'll try to get away from that by the shirt that I pair with them. This T I'm wearing happens to match exactly but maybe is a bit too baggy. It is from a Meg McElwee craftsy pattern.
UPDATE: I have worn mine and like them but still think they look a little like pajamas. I regret removing the ease in front of the thigh because they are a little snug in that area.

I love your print pants and the fit is wonderful! Recently at JoAnn's I looked for a print to make pants and couldn't find anything. Maybe next time!

Yikes I'm getting ready to make these and your adjustments are making wish I did not buy this pattern, lately I like sewing my TNT patterns. yours turned out real nice with a good fit, either I will follow thru keeping your adjustments in mind or sell the pattern on eBay LOL thanks for posting this is what's so great about PR :)

After wearing them, I am reconsidering the 1/2" I removed down the front leg...think I'll buy another pattern next time they are on sale..this one is worth a second chance.
