|Pattern Description: |
Learn to Sew Misses' knit pants in two lengths and woven pants in one length sewing pattern.
View A and B have pleats, B has banded cuffs instead of hems. Views C and D are PJ pants.
6-18 (all in one envelope)
I cut a 16. The finished hip was 44.5" and my hips are about 44". I initially used a 3/8" seam allowance but went back to 5/8"
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are VERY good, imo. It's a "learn to sew" pattern so it is quite detailed. I made this pattern up last March (view B) when I had been sewing for just a month or so. So naturally it was very easy this time around.
The biggest issue I had with the instructions is them telling you to add 3" to your waist measurement for the elastic. That's crazy...
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Love the casualness and that you can transform them from looking like lounge pants. The pleats are my favorite.
Ponte knit from FabricMart. It is really fluid though, unlike other pontes that I've sewn from there. Wish I had gotten more!
Also, the pattern calls for 1 3/4 yard of 60" fabric. I only had 1.5 yards and still have like a 30" piece left!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Removed 3/4" from CF, sewed a 3/8" back crotch seam. Added about 2" to the length.
(they aren't hemmed yet as I was deciding between a regular vs. elasticized hem).
Used 1" elastic (didn't have any 1 1/2" on hand).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely sew again and recommend the pattern. It went together in less than a couple hours, and that included basting the side seams first to check for fit.
I have wanted printed pants since last fall but thought I was too wide to be wearing a print on bottom like that. Well I needed an instant gratification project so pattern I'd already made + Knit fabric + Serger = WIN! I'm glad I went for it. I really love these pants!
