|I've made and reviewed these before, but decided to scrap my previous changes and start completely over with pattern adjustments. I am very happy with Version 2!|
Pattern Description: A great pull-on pant featuring a wide waist band with false opening, these full length pants are a must have wardrobe staple piece
Measurements of Size 10:
Inner leg length 80cm or 31"
Total crotch including waistband 60cm or 23"
Hem circumference 42cm or 16"
Pattern Sizing:6-30. I made an 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, though I widened the lower legs of mine.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. There's
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Likes: Takes only 2-3 hours from initial cutting time to final hemming! Also it is a sleek and professional looking pant, and I love the lower waist. The fit is great, even I'm happy with it!
Dislikes: None, though you need to be careful to use a fabric that has enough stretch or else you might have trouble getting these over your hips. It depends on fabric and weave but my guess is that your fabric should have at least 4% lycra or 20% stretch for best results (similar to the Jalie 2908 jeans fabric recommendation). I would pass on using anything with less than that unless you have slim hips compared to your waist measurement.
Fabric Used: Stretch bengaline (Fabric.com). This fabric has about 25% stretch. This time I was able to get away with not using a zipper in the front.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Surprisingly, none to the back crotch curve, but a few to the legs and front crotch curve. See my blog post for more details and photos.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, though you need to be careful with your fabric choice. I highly recommend this pattern to my fellow pears that are interesting in making pull-on stretch woven pants.
