|I made this pattern again in a black linen blend that I bought thirteen years (?) ago from Fashion Fabrics for the Fabric Stash Contest. I think the fabric would have continued to rest on the shelf if I hadn't entered the contest. The pants took 2 yards to make taking my stash total from 2456.5 to 2454.5.|
Pattern Description: Misses'/Misses' Petite skirt and pants. Includes tapered, mid-knee length skirt, skinny leg, wide, boot-cut or straight-legged pants.
Pattern Sizing:The sizing for this pattern comes in 8-14, and 16-24, I wear 14 in the hips and a 16 in the waist, all they had at the store was the 16-24 so thats what I bought.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes, they looked like the straight leg pants in the picture on the envelope except that I added pockets.
Were the instructions easy to follow?Very easy to follow instructions. I especially liked the way they put in the zipper.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the way these pants fit. I had to take them up in the hip a little, but that was a given because I had bought a size too big, but these pants hang straight from the hip just the way I like them. They also went together very easily..
I made them from some green denim that I bought about six years ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the hips smaller and lengthened the legs.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I'll sew it again. I plan to use this for my non-stretch fabric pants pattern. I would certainly recommend it to someone else.
Conclusion: A great casual pair of pants.
The picture at the top is another pair that I made out of linen.
