Happy Sunday! I crossed off another project from my Fearless February Challenge list. I managed to squeak out a pair of pants in time to wear for church . I cut them out on Friday and sewed them together Saturday. Super easy to put together, especially since they have an elastic waistband. I think I made it know in this POST HERE why I tend to prefer elastic waist pants. I picked a mid-weight black and gold striped polyester fabric I've had in my stash for a good while. I figure it would make a cute pair of pants. In my haste to leave this morning and the cold temperature (I wore a sweater with it) I didn't exactly style this pants the way I wanted. These pants will be cute in the Spring with a cute slouchy off-shoulder tunic, belt and some strap-py sandals. But for the time being the outfit worked and here's the review......
(Although my shirt was pulled up (my camera man didn't tell me), notice the back pants legs fit perfectly. The trick, I used another good pants pattern to adjust the fit on this one. Will explain in another post)
Time to Sew:
Like 2 hours. Super easy!
Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
Elastic waist, full leg pants
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes! Don't need them!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Simplicity--perfect to showcase a nice fabric.
Wrinkle textured black/gold polyester pants
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Nothing major. I altered the crotch curves to look like a pair of pants that fit me well. I left the legs fine.
What would you do differently next time?:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Probably so. I need to add a bunch of pants to my wardrobe.
A good deal.....
