|Pattern Rating:||Great Wardrobe Builder |
|Review Rating:|| Very Helpful by 2 people |
|Fabric:||ITY Jersey [See other projects in this fabric]|
|Pattern Description: From the site- Slim leg pant with elasticated waist, drawstring, faux fly front and side pockets. Can be made full, knee length with or without cuffs or as shorts. |
Pattern Sizing: XS; I made a size small and later trashed them (there were many other problems with them). For reference, I am 5'3"; wear a size 2 in ready to wear skirts and shorts and a size 8-12 at the waist in Big 4 sewing pattern language.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, ma'am.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, blissfully so.
Fabric Used: At first, lace-look ITY knit. And then, aqua sequins. Love.
Here's some more useful pattern info. A more detailed version is on the blog Wasted Weekends:
1. I shortened by an inch at the front and back crotch. [Trendy high waist designed for the 5'4"-5'7" lady looks like 'I can't find my pants so I put on some grown-up's' on the short people.] I didn't know what I was doing, and was scared of effing up the pocket slant/pocket bag seam alignment. I took my inch from the front crotch out below where the bottom of the pocket bag is stitched in. On the back, I just lopped one inch off the top.
2. I left the cuffs off the bottom because that super-taper is not a good look for me.
3. I saved myself a lot of heartache once I started using the three-step zig zag stitch instead of the, um, one step?
4. I eliminated the faux fly front, which I thought seemed troublesome for sequins.
5. I underlined the sequins with jersey knit, which makes them fairly heavy and fleece-y feeling on the inside. I did not follow the internet's advice and pick every sequin out of the seam allowance prior to assembly, because I am not a crazy person.
6. The waist band on the sequin pair are in heavier ponte knit.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes! I mean, I've sewn it twice already, but I'd definitely recommend it.
