|Pattern Description: Fitted, below waist pants have elastic and purchased ribbon drawstring, yoke back, side front seams, no side seams, and pockets.|
Pattern Sizing: XM-XXL, I started with size medium.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes, except I made shorts.
Were the instructions easy to follow?Very easy, as rated.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
-The seams at side-front rather than at the side for figure flattery and comfort.
-Shaped for straight figure rather than hippy shape.
-Back yoke for shaping even though nobody will ever see it since I won't be tucking tops into these elastic-waist shorts.
-I'm not a fan of in-seam pockets so eliminated them for less bulk.
Fabric Used:Peacock blue, mostly cotton/some lycra french terry left over from another project.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
-Added .5 inch to rise. They are supposed to be lower rise but they always end up slipping off of my hips when I attempt that style.
-Made from knit instead of woven. I ended up removing width down to the size small, I think due to the give of the fabric.
-Topstitched any place I could.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will use this again for comfy, knock-around pants. It's a pattern that would be perfect made from mid-weight, softened linen.
Conclusion: An elastic waist pattern that is a step (or two) up from the basic sweats or gym pants. They are successful in a knit or drapey woven.
