A multi-sized jean pattern with flared legs. Pattern Sizing:
Multi-sized, from girls to plus sizes. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes! Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes! I loved the fly front instructions. Some of the best I have ever used. If you carefully follow the diagrams, you will see all of the topstitching, etc. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the multi-sizing. It will be good to sew jeans for not only myself, but my girls as well. I am not particularly fond of the waist band...may use a fitted waistband next time I make it. Fabric Used:
Denim with 4% lycra blend. I also used 100% cotton denim for my muslin - no stretch...they were tight on the hips, but still looked nice. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut a straight size R and I shortened the pattern by about 2-3 inches (I'm 5'2"). In addition, I made them straight legged vs. flared. Next time I make them, I will add a fitted waist band and make them a little more fitted through the legs - mostly for style reasons. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
YES! and YES! Conclusion:
A great pattern - love it. Well drafted, fits well.
