|Fabric:||Sweatshirt Fleece [See other projects in this fabric]|
|Pattern Description: Learn to Sew Misses' knit pants in two lengths and woven pants in one length sewing pattern.|
Pattern Sizing: 6 to 18, I cut a 6 with modifications.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I made changes so mine looks different, but I think it looks better!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the pockets, and it's an easy pattern that is easy to change to make it exactly what you want.
Fabric Used: Black and charcoal sweatshirt fleece from Jo Anns
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I've made pajama pants with this pattern before using view D and I like the pockets. I honestly never thought I would make the other views because...wow. For these pants I used view A with the cuffs of view B and added in the pockets of view D. I also lowered the rise by two inches like I have done for view D in the past because I don't like my pants by my belly button, but maybe that's just me. Also definitely got rid of those pleats.
I cut a size 6, but had to fuss with the fit some. The thighs were way too baggy for my taste and the ankle was very tight, but my fabric doesn't stretch as much as they recommend so the ankle part was on me. Also the waist needed to be taken in some, but again I made changes to the pattern there by taking out the pleats and adding in pockets.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I'm sure I will make it again. Yes I would recommend it.
Conclusion: Overall, I am very happy with how they turned out, they look pretty close to how I wanted and are cozy. More on my Blog
