|Pattern Description: Top, pants, and skirt. I made the pants.|
Pattern Sizing:I used the size 16, my waist/hip measurements say 18, but I have just the right amount of ease with what I made.
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 didn't really look at them beyond seeing the recommended hem treatment, which I then totally disregarded. Why anyone would want two lines of straight stitching is beyond me. For a sporty look I would do a twin needle/coverstitch, but I went with my sewing machine's stretch blind hem stitch and was very happy with how it came out.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is a good basic knit pant with straight legs, which I needed. The waist is not too bulky, which I appreciate given that it's an elastic waisted pant. The only thing I really disliked was the lack of waist or hip measurements on the pattern and I was unable to tell where the top of the pants were supposed to hit. I am short waisted and they still fell about an inch short of my true waist, but are exactly where I wanted them to sit.
Fabric Used: Black ponte knit of unknown fiber from Hancock. The fabric is a bit thinner than I would normally prefer for pants but was wonderful to sew with. I will definitely use this again for dresses.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Shortened the thigh by 1/2 inch, 1.5 inch wedge added to the back center seam. I should have shortened the front rise by 1/2 inch, but I didn't.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I am really happy with how this turned out and plan to make at least one more to replace some worn out knit pants that I need to get rid of.
Conclusion: Simple, quick to make knit pants. My husband thinks they look great and I appreciate their high comfort factor. More at my blog
