|Pattern Description: OOP. Misses pants sized for stretch, straight leg or flared, with straight waistband that sits just below the waist. Fly zip. I made the straight leg version.|
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, with my modificaitons
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't even look at the instructions as this was a straightforward sort of pant.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing - good, plain, simple lines. Great little pattern that actually fits me - practically a first
Fabric Used:Stretch cotton twill
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: As I have small hips, I thought there would be enough stretch in the fabric to forgo the zip and just use a separate waistband with elastic inserted. This worked well. I also raised the waist by half and inch and dropped the crotch as I have a high rise and a long crotch depth.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, and Yes - adding a fly zip and band is easy if you want to do exactly as the pattern suggests.
Conclusion: I found this pattern on a clearance table. I just bought it was cheap, and I just thought I might try it one day to see if it fits - I have problems with pants fit with my slim hips and legs. I'm now glad I did, because this is the best fit I have yet found in the Big 4 or Kwik Sew. It is very plain, with no pockets, straight waistband, darts only at the back. I love the shape of this pattern. I think I wil be using this over and over again , and make it up with a zip, or with an elasticised band, and use it as a sloper so that I can make jeans from it or add pockets variations.
