Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were easy to follow. I am nut sure the address the issue of having to cut one of the buttonholes through the faux fly zipper.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the trendy look and had seen a few pair popping up on blogs and thought I might give it a try.
a lightweight Italian suiting from Mood
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added 1" to the length, cut out a size medium but sewed the seams at a 3/4" seam allowances.
I used a ribbon for the middle casing at the waistband but if you didn't like the look of the ribbon, just forgo it and add another row of elastic in the waistband.
Since my fabric is ivory, I used nude tricot knit for the pockets, so no show-through and the tricot is thin so it doesn't show lines.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again but the fabric would have to be perfect. I think this is an important part of why I love these pants so, the drape of the fabric is just perfect.
I love these pants. When I was making these, I had my questions... were they too trendy? would they look awkward on me or would I look awkward wearing them? I don't have any of those questions now, I just flat love these pants
