|Pattern Description: |
Sailor pants with two waist option. These are perfect sailor pants or for a swashbuckler. They are also similar to many Lagenlook pants I've seen in RTW.
Version 1 (muslin)
Version 2 is in the thumbnail above
I sewed 46, but it was a little too large. 44 will work better next time
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, very. I think these would be great pants for beginners since there is no zipper although its a fly front. They simply overlap so much that a zip isn't necessary.
The only confusing part is the order of the waistband pieces. Starting from the front to back, it's 4, 5, 7, 6. I almost sewed them in the wrong order.
Adding to the confusion is that the side-front and side-back look very much alike, which can easily get messed up when you have 6 pieces for each waistband piece (outer waistband, inner waistband and interfacing). I was lucky since the right and wrong sides of the fabric are easily distinguishable.
I used my trick with corset pieces: notch the top of the waist band pieces to know which side goes up. For the side markings, I wrote the pattern number directly on the fabric that the side matched up with.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
- The design elements: darted pant leg and overlapped no-zip fly. I also can't resist a sailor-style pant.
- Most men I have known do not prefer these types of pants on women. In fact, my BF says: Oh. More clown pants...So maybe be aware these aren't going to be these great pants to go pick up men with ;)
- No pockets!>
No idea. It's impossible to iron. It has a hand like linen, but its got silver threads in it. Mystery Polyester mix I got off the remnants rack. Next time Ill use stiffer fabric so the structure from the pant leg dart is more obvious.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Sway back adjustment by curving in the side backs of the waistband.
Shortened by 3.5 inches (I'm 5'6) Next time I need to shorten front half an inch due to tilted waist.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes! I really like these and they were really fast to put together for sophisticated-looking pants (e.g. in comparison to elastic waistband pants or drawstring...).
Sewing time: 3.5 hours, but I took breaks to stare at my DVD movie I had running in the background.
Cost: 8 euros. I need exactly 2.1 meters for these, fabric was 6, interfacing 1, buttons 1
Try these if you're new to pants. The loose style and no-zip fly will help you get good results.
