We all need an easy-peasy pull-on pant, so
make yourself a bunch of these, in light to
medium-weight fluid and drape-y fabrics like
crepe, soft linen, crinkle or double gauze,
georgette, or rayon challis. You can also use
a drape-y knit like interlock or a silk(y) jersey.
Straight-cut full length pull-on pants have a
grown-on elasticated waistband with optional
faux drawstring trim and side seam pockets.
Pants have a full leg and a deep stitched hem.
You know you’ll make these pants again and
again...try them in linen to keep you cool in
warm weather, in slippery satin as a luxe
evening pant, in a print or striped crepe as
part of fab vacation look, or in a soft jersey
as a superior sleep or lounging pant.
Sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 need 2 3/8 yards / 210 cm fabric.
Sizes 18-20-22-24-26 need 2 5/8 yards / 238 cm fabric.
Add enough 1” or 2.5cm wide elastic to comfortably circle your waist.
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
I love the fact it's paper and not the flimsy tissue pattern. The patterns are quite easy and very trendy. I am a self taught sewer and am able to follow and understand the instructions. I think I've purchased ten patterns from Hot Patterns and luv them all!
I made the "no drawstring waistband" version in a rayon challis, and made my standard alterations for pants (lowered the front crotch). I also omitted the pockets for my wearable muslin. I will add the pockets for my next pair, but wanted to check out the fit first. The stay tape at the crotch curve is truly inspired! The fit was good, I will be making more of these. I have some double gauze just waiting in the wings! ;-)
