Gerties Butterick 5895 and Butterick 4685

Hello!

Long time, no see :)

In the past few weeks I’ve been incredibly busy with school but I managed to take a break from learning and squeezed this cute capripants in my schedule. The pattern I used is Gertie’s Butterick 5895 which doesn’t seem to be very popular. That I don’t really understand because the pattern is amazing! It leaves so many options to adjust the trousers to your liking.

For example, I made heart shaped pockets for the back and sewed a one-sided zip (I hope that’s what you call it in English :/ ) in the back. The waistband is a tad bit wider than the pattern suggests but that is okay (only about 1/2”) and in the end I wish I had made beltloops…well, next time!

I will make one more adjustments at the hems. I plan on tightening them around the knee area and sew slits on each side, so they’re more summery.

The top is Butterick 4685 which I shortened to waist-lenght.

Fabrics:

Pants: denim-stretch

Shirt: Cottonblend (used for blouses)

(whoops forgot to take out some basting stitches ;P )

Hope you like them :)

  • These fit you really nicely – was it difficult to get such a good fit? What kind of adjustments did you make?

    • no not at all! I didn’t alter anything regarding the pattern except the width of the waistband. The pattern doesn’t include pockets so I drafted them my own. All in all I cut the fabric with the pattern right out of the envelope. No adjustements in hips, waist or leg width or length :3
