Thanks for a candid review. The pattern drawing makes it hard to tell what to expect from this pattern, so your photo is very helpful. If you like pleated tapered pants (my personal worst look of all time LOL), maybe you could get a similar style in Burda or Neue Mode that will have a better fit. The Neue Mode pants you reviewed look like a perfect fit.

Good for you for sticking it out. Sounds like you learned some stuff. I've shied away from her patterns bec I don't want to sew and THEN shrink. Makes me too nervous:-)

Congrats on persevering (hmm, I have to look up how to spell that word). Personally, I think this no preshrinking thing is just a gimmick; fabrics have different shrink rates so you never know what you will get unless you buy her specific fabric.

Your perserverance paid off with a nice pair of pants. Congratulations! To avoid taking a chance with fit, I preshrink all my fabrics before I sew, even CJ's cotton lycra. When using CJ patterns, do a flat pattern measurement before you cut, no matter what fabric you're using. Make fit adjustments to the pattern, and then cut your fabric, knowing your garment will fit. Incidentally, in my opinion, CJ's cotton lycra is well worth the price. The large part of the shrinkage happens in the length. You'll find that this fabric wears for literally years. It is best washed with the garment inside out, with lots of water in the agitator, so as to avoid rubbing the garment against other clothes. ALso, as a reminder -- it's a good idea to line dry, as the dryer wears clothing out quickly.

I just finished these difficult, for me, pants and also had trouble with the pocket/dart--figured I must just be stupid. I am long waisted, and the crotch was still low on me. I shortened the pants 4 inches on the pattern, then another 4 after making them. Who were these pants designed for anyway?? I admit--they are comfortable, love the fabric. I will probably go home tonight, redo the cuffs and the waistband now that I'm less frustrated.
