Eureka! Pants that Fit have a contemporary tapered silhouette. Package includes tissue patterns for 5 sizes (XXS-L). The pattern includes 3 back choices in each size to accommodate a variety of derrieres and crotch depths. Created by Sarah Veblen, I did the original fitting of this pattern with her course here on PR.
A wide variety of sizes with the choice of three behind shapes. I have recently lost weight and was really chuffed when Sarah Veblen pronounced me as having a flat behind. I used an S size with flat behind.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
There is no photograph, just a line drawing which is pretty bad – not the sort of pattern to inspire you to try if you are looking for anything other than a Brilliant Fit.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Excellent. The instructions are in the form of a booklet which goes through the fitting and adjustment process as well as the construction.
What I like about the pattern
The chance to have a tailored starting point for fitting. I like this pattern, this is not my best version but that is due to the fabric choice.
What I dislike
The pattern would be better with a few photographs of finished pants.
I thought these were going to be great, the fabric is manmade (a departure for me) but has fantastic drape. It is a sort of crepe, I cut the pattern with the slight stretch of the fabric going round my body. The fabric was a nightmare to cut, it wouldn't take a crease easily so seams did not look as neat as I like. On the up side, it has a bit of stretch and after inserting one of my best unpuckered invisible zips, I found I could put the pants on without undoing the zip.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made
This is a TNT pattern but this fabric made changes necessary.
I originally made the legs wider, thinking this would give good drape. When I tried them on, they just looked baggy, so I reduced the seams again.
I removed the invisible zip because it wasn't necessary.
I always need to have the back of my pants with elastic waist because I have fused vertebrae and need give in the waistband or I suffer a lot of pain. I realised I could put these on without a zip, so I just turned over the top and made a casing.
I have two deep darts in the back and none in the front.
I took Sarah Veblen's Pants Fitting Workshop and she was a brilliant help with fitting. The changes I made were to scoop out the crotch to make room for my behind which has dropped with age. Look at the back view here
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I definitely recommend this pattern to others. I will sew these again but not in this fabric. I will add more photos of other versions when they are taken.
Great pattern once fitted.
