|Pattern Description: Slightly flared-leg, semi-fitted through the hip, contour waistband and welt pockets.|
Pattern Sizing: This pattern runs true to size. I made an almost straight size 10, and I am a size 10 (Aus) or 6 (US) in RTW pants.
Were the instructions easy to follow?The instructions are good and this is the second time I have made these pants, but I still managed to get the pocket bags wrong, so there was no opening! This was easily fixed.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fit on me. Last time I made these I allowed for all sorts of adjustments, then wrote on the pattern "Next time cut a straight size 10" !!
My only slight dislike is that the zip is a little too close to the CF.Next time, I will move it over a few more mm.
Fabric Used:A nice quality navy linen. I underlined them with some purple(!) silk organza Inside view to try to reduce wrinkling, but I don't think it helps much. A photo of me, showing the wrinkles after having worn them briefly for these photos Here
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added 1cm extra room (width) at the top of the pants and waistband, and reduced the flare at the bottom. I am 160cm (5'3") tall and only occasionally wear a small heel, so I think less flare is good for me.
I left off the pockets at the front.
For the waistband, I used David Coffin's method for attaching cuffs ("Burrito method") as described in his shirt-making book to attach the waistband and get a neat inside at the front.

Please note, I won't be wearing these pants with a singlet top tucked in like this - this is just to show the fit!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Since I love the fit straight out of the packet, I hope to sew these again. I would recommend this pattern, but everyone is so different when it comes to pants fit.
Conclusion: A much-needed pair of summer pants!
