OMG! My first pair of pants are done! I couldn’t wait to take a real picture so here is a sneak peek until tomorrow gives me some daylight. I LOVED this pattern. The fit was amazing and I’m a hard person to fit. I used a super drapey semi-stretch mystery clearance fabric from JoAnne. It’s a khaki herringbone with a shadow stripe. I even did a blind hem stitch for the first time too. The only I would change is doing the inside facing differently. I used a stiff material to help the top keep its shape (which it didn’t really do anyway) and you can see the line from the facing. Not the pants fault, just a poor choice in fabric. I’m going to do a heavy jersey for winter time, maybe tweed next time!! I also cut a size 10 instead of going by my waist which would have been 12ish. I read the ease… 5.5 inches…. yep, kind of a lot so I used my hip measurement instead and hoped for the best. The waist is actually a touch too big so imho I would measure the pattern at the waist, add your ease (just to be sure) and cut to your hip. The hip was great, I love the Katherine Hepburn feel of the wide wide leg too. I’m going estate sale-ing tomorrow and I’m totally wearing them!
