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? I usually completely ignore Big 4 instructions for knit garment, but the unusual piecing meant I actually read them this time. They were fairly good. One thing that confused me was that on some of the diagrams, the lapped seams are portrayed right side up, and on others they are wrong side up. You have to pay attention to the shading. I ended up just using the line drawing to guide the direction of the lap on each seam. The instructions were helpful in figuring out the best order to sew the pieces together, as well as what gets sewn to what. These pants are a bit of a puzzle.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Likes: The AWESOME seaming!! This style is so unique, and I really love it. The front slits are adorable and leg elongating. This is such a flattering pant. Dislikes: A waistband with 3 inches of positive ease makes no sense, unless you want your pants to ride down your backside, rapper style.
Fabric Used: Ponte knit from FabricMart. Aside, I think it is hilarious that all of the reviewers so far have used black fabric for these pants, which makes the cool seaming almost invisible.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I effectively raised the crotch rise by an inch, which is a typical alteration for me. I could have used more coverage in back, so definitely check if the back rise is high enough for your comfort. I scooped out the back crotch, also a typical alteration. I often have to lengthen Vogue pants, but these were drafted long enough.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I definitely want another pair of these. I'd like to make a few minor fit tweaks and then make them in a teal solid with more contrasting stitching to really show off the seaming. I do recommend the pattern.
Conclusion: This is a much easier sew than it looks, and the finished pant is extremely flattering, since the ankle slit gives some flare to balance the snug fit through the hips and thighs.
