I made View C
Pattern Sizing: : BB(8-10-12-14), FF(16-18-20-22)
I made my usual size 12 and they fit without alteration, so I'd say they were true to size.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? On me, they looked much baggier
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, although, in keeping with the other reviewers that made this version, my zip also ended higher than the instruction illustration indicated. (see photo)
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Dislike: There is no interfacing (other than the fly) in the flat front of these pants. That means that in a knit fabric there is nothing to stop it stretching while being worn. I feel that if I breathe in, they'll fall down. That's not likely to happen, but the feeling of insecurity persists
Fabric Used: Grey marle ponte knit from Lincraft.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: : I left off the pockets (never put them in pants), shortened them by 2", but still made them ankle length as I dislike pants at half mast. On me, with my short legs, they just look silly. Otherwise I made them to pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes. I would definitely stabilise the front facings if I did and narrow the legs down a tad.
