Elastic waist pants with ruffle.
xs-l I traced a small and added 5/8" seam allowance. Sizing is a little confusing in this book. At the beginning of the sewing section a small is listed as 26.5" waist and 37" hip, but on the pants pattern page it is listed as 38.5" waist and 40 1/4" hip. I am guessing that the later are perhaps finished measurements? I have a 39" waist and 40" hips and think the small ended up fitting just fine, so maybe use the measurements listed with each pattern if you are going to try this book, or better yet measure the patterns before tracing and decide what you want :o)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the quirkiness of the design, as well as the simplicity and comfort.
Off-white pinwhale corduroy.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added about an inch to the depth of the back crotch. This gave me a little more room for my rump.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might try it again in a knit fabric. I would recommend to others.
Really easy to sew and comfortable to wear.
