One thing I'm loving right now is the wide leg, loose fitting easy make, easy wear type of pant. I love them whether they have an elastic waist or if they have a waistband and zipper (although my invisible zipper installation still leaves a bit to be desired). I still cant figure out why my invisible zipper does not turn out "invisible" but I'm gonna continue to work on it.
Pattern Description: Pants have contour waistband, side zipper, narrow hem and various width variations.
Pattern Sizing: I made size Large. View C
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, I think so
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were pretty simple to follow along with
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that this pattern only had 4 pattern pieces (the lessor number of pattern pieces the more likely I am to make, and finish a garment with minimal errors.) I'm kinda lazy like that.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't make any alterations. I sewed this straight from the envelope. The next time I make this pattern I will add side pockets ( I really love pockets in pants) and I will lengthen maybe 3 inches or so. I can only wear this pair with flats because they are barely long enough. If I wore these with heels they'd prob be ankle length and I desire a pant like this to at least graze the top of my shoe.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will be sewing this again. I will be sewing these up again soon I suspect.
Conclusion: I really like these pants. I love how airy and comfortable they are.
I forgot to get pics without the vest, The back of this tank was so cute. I threw the jean vest on top of the tank because I had a early Saturday morning meeting at church and this was a racer back tank with exposed silver zipper . I like to stay moderately modest when I'm in the church building. Even though it was not a Sunday and our church is pretty casual I feel there should still be some discretion (in terms of dressing) used in certain places.
|It was a seriously windy day when I took these pics. Look how the pants are blowing in the wind.|
I met for brunch with some girlfriends this day. A few hours later one of them called and said "Hey where did you get those pants? I want to look for some like that!"
That's a indication these pants were a success!
Have a Great day..
See y'all later
