Pants / Trousers

Butterick #5895 – Party Pants!!

June 28, 2016

Hello everyone!

It has been such a long time since I posted anything on here. I have had a long break away from sewing, but I have slowly gotten my sewing urge back. And now,  after all the fabulous inspiration on WeSewRetro, I have a new make to share with you all!


I am sure many of you have already used this pattern by Gertie , as it was released a few years ago, but it is such a classic retro style and can certainly stand to be repeated! This was my first time sewing fitted pants/capris, something I have actually dreaded, and procrastinated for years. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that not only was this pattern easy to sew, it was also a lovely style and fitted me with only minor adjustments.


I really wasn’t sure I even wanted to sew these initially, because of the high waist style. I have made some wide legged swing pants earlier, but came to realize the high waist, palazzo-style trousers just wasn’t for me. I am actually baffled to have these look rather flattering! Don’t you just love it when that happens??

If you, too, are new to sewing fitted pants, why not give this pattern a go? Who knows, you might make your favorite summer capris! I know I’ll be making these again 🙂

If you want to read more about the making of these pants, and see more pictures, you are all welcome to Pinhouse!
