These miraculous pants check all the boxes...seriously
easy to make and fit; endlessly chic and sharp; and as
comfortable as your favorite jammies.
These gorgeous pants are designed for medium to
heavy-weight knits with a little stretch like ponte,
double knits or 'jegging' fabrics. You can also make
these essential pants in a stretch bottom-weight woven,
like stretch twill, crepe, chambray, wool, velvet, sateen,
even stretch pleather.
Pull-on, semi-fitted pants have an invisible 'Hollywood'
elastic waistline that lays flat and smooth, plus optional
front and back creases. Pants feature a slim silhouette
with a gentle figure-flattering flare from just below the
knee... choose a just-above-the-ankle cropped length
to showcase your fabulous shoes, or go full-length for
a long-and-lean look. Pants finish with a deep hem.
These modern-chic pants are guaranteed to become a
wardrobe workhorse...team them with a matching cardi
or jacket for a soft suit; wear them with a same fabric
tailored top for a 2-piece jumpsuit; or try them as an
easy-peasy everyday pant with a drape-y T, a slouchy
sweater, or a pretty billowing blouse.
And do we have to add, these are perfect for travel?
Sizes 6-8-10 will need around 1 & 3/8 yards or 125cm fabric;
sizes 12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26 will need around 2 & ½ yards
or 229 cm fabric. *PLEASE NOTE* 2 & ½ yards/229cm will give
a lot of waste...better to double the amount of fabric and make
two pairs, and you'll be very happy you did...*
You'll also need enough 1" or 2.5cm wide *soft* elastic
to comfortably circle your hips.
All fabric allowances are for 60" or 150cm wide fabrics.
Absurdly fast. Truly fabulous. Glorious fit. Crazy comfy.
I used a rayon/nylon/spandex ponte, basted my fabric with a chain stitch for ease of removal for alterations, but they were perfect. Stitched them up with my serger and wore them to work to rave reviews. I'm in love!
This pattern seemed too good too be true, but I hit the button & bought it. I had a beautiful piece of point knit and thought it would be perfect. I cut a straight size 16 - no changes. I did do a muslin and was blown away by how well they fit. So I cut, stitched & slipped them on. They fit!!!!!! This pattern will now be one of the tnt's in my collection for when I need a good basic pair of pants.
These are so fast it is unbelievable. They fit smoothly and without bulging in inappropriate spots. They look good on. They are a bit plain, but that means you can wear them with anything.
