7/21/2013 It is so cold here at the moment I needed to make a warm pair of pants. Found this corduroy in the stash so have made my self a pair of cord pants for the stash contest. They are lovely and warm. Purple Cord Pants Pattern Description: This is the kwik Sew Master pattern book which is the basic patterns for adults. I have made the pants from this book many times and it is my TNT pattern for elastic waisted pants which I can just cut out and sew up and be finished in less than 2 hours.
Pattern Sizing: XS - XL
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes they do but I do not insert the pockets.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are easy like all Kwik Sew Intructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I have used other patterns from this book but I like the pants the best I suppose because I use them so much as they are comfortable to wear around the house. I spent a lot of time getting them right and I made 6 pairs before I was finished with alterations.
Fabric Used:A Stretch Cotton, I have also used Bengaline.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Many alterations, I made one pair and wore them for a day and then did any alterations, made another pair and did the same until after the 6th pair I was happy. It was mainy shortening the crotch, taking in the side seams and inside leg type of alterations.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I will be sewing these again and would recommend them to others.
