Description

Well, this turned up completely different than the original pattern, mostly cause of the fabric. It was some kind of polyester lycra, very thin, but with nice shine. I believe this fabric has more elastic than this pattern predicts. Than, I had to make size 42 thanks to my wide hips, although I am size 38 in waist, height etc. Hence high waist and long legging’s legs.
At the end I am satisfied, but I think I am going to narrow a bit some parts. This was my quickest sewing ever! And I am definitely going to make some real pants out of this pattern, cause I like it a lot (it was love at 1st sight)!

    I love these and they look great on! I recently bought an almost identical pair for $30, I should have made them. Also, I’m in love with your black coat, it’s gorgeous.

      thank you! truly, I have bought the right fabric for the pants according to pattern, and can’t wait to make them! this time like the pattern says – with zip and everything else, to make them look like real pencil pants I can wear to work. but now is too hot, so I am sewing summer things – preparing for vacation! so many ideas, and no time!!!
      by the way, these are super easy and fast to sew, especially with the serger
