|Today's review is on Sandra Betzina's fancy pleated pants. I wanted to make these since I attended her retreat last year. I couldn't imagine making these in a wild print like pictured on the pattern envelope.|
This wool gaberdine suiting was the perfect choice for me.
The pattern is described as: wide-legged pants (very loose-fitting through hips) have fitted yokes, front pleats, button, self loop and invisible side zipper, And View A: (I made) has side front pockets, lined yokes and front pleated into cuffs with optional topstitching (channel stitching). View B: (which I plan to make) self-line yokes.
This pattern ranges from sizes A to J; I used E. My only alteration to the pattern was to add four inches to the length.
My pants look like the pants on the envelope.
The instructions were easy to follow. I took extra care with forming the pleats and channel stitching on the cuffs.
The instructions provided guidelines on how to fit the yoke and I followed them. But when I finished the pants, they had more room than I like. Maybe I loss weight during the process. Ha. Ha. Ha. The next pair I make, I will shorten the crotch and better fit the yoke.
I call these fancy pants because of the pleating, cuff, and optional channeling stitching. These design details are what inspired me to try them. It took me twice the amount of time to make it takes to make my TNT, M5818 pants. It's worth it. Near perfection is needed for these details as they are eye catching and will be noticed right away.
My fabric is a very nice wool gaberdine purchased at Vogue in Evanston. You're probably thinking wool in summer. It's a medium weight fabric that can be worn on cooler summer days and in spring and fall.
I will make view B. If you like this style, try them. The pants aren't difficult to make, but require a little time to make those details perfect.
The top I'm wearing is the second one made, Vogue 1282.
