Pattern Description:
Men's casual trousers or shorts pattern, with classic fly front and yoke styling

Pattern Sizing:
Size 30 - 40 waist. I used the 36 and graded down to a 35 at the waist. My brother has lost weight since he took the measurements though, so they're slightly big!

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?


Were the instructions easy to follow?

Generally yes, but there are a few mistakes here and there. If you're an experienced sewer you'll probably be fine, but if you're a beginner you might want to also consult the Jebediah Sew Along on Thread Theory's website. I also found that very helpful for the fly front and the waistband finishing stages.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I learned lots of things on this pattern - I did my first fly front, first flat felled yoke, first bound seams etc. ! And they all turned out really well. I love the attention to the detail and the finishing touches - like encouraging you to bind the outside leg seam so that when it's turned up (on the shorts), a little binding peeks out

Fabric Used:
Olive cotton twill ordered from Mood Fabrics online. It had a little bit of stretch (which I wasn't expecting), but turned out fine.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I would! I made these for my brother for his birthday and he really likes them. I want to make him a pair of the full length trousers for Christmas now... More photos and constructions details at my blog: Cashmerette

Lovely! Great job, esp considering that it included a number of firsts! And beautiful background, too - are those lavender fields? I bet it smelled heavenly.

I just recently came across this company, so it is great to see one of the patterns made up so beautifully. Those pants look so comfortable, and well made. Great job!

Superb!! I bet he'll wear them to shreds. This looks like a pattern that does a good job of walking you through all of the details that make handmade better than ready-to-wear. Thanks for the France photos. I LOVE France.
