See below for a complete pattern review.
Gross-grain hem finishFabric: Stretch Crepe from my local Fabricland . This fabric has some weight to it which makes it perfect for our Alberta cold temp.
Pattern Description: Close fitting, below waist shorts and pants have elasticized waist and stitched hems
Pattern Sizing: E5- 14-to 22. I cut size 16 of view D
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow: I didn't follow the instruction, I actually didn't need it for this simple pants.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Here are few I made;
1. Lengthen by 2.5"
2. Lengthened back crotch by making a 1.5"wedge
3. Made 1" wedge on the back center waist and graded to nothing on the side
4. Shortened the front crotch by 2.5"
5. Added 1.5" gross grain to finish the hem because the finished length was too short even with additional 2.5"but I like how this turns out because the grain gave the pants some weight on the hem
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the style, fit and comfort of the the pants
Would you recommend it to others? Yes if you love simple,quick and stylish pants this is a go to pant pattern.
