Description

Pattern Used: Vogue 2907

This is my second pair of pants (again for the contest). I’m pretty happy with how they turned out, except there are a couple fit issues in the back thigh area (too loose) and underneath (too tight). We tried to hide them in the pictures :) Also, I fought for about an hour with my mom’s machine over buttonholes, and just couldn’t get them to work! So, I improvised so we could take pictures :) I will fix it any day now so I can wear them!

Alterations I made: Flat felled seams on the sides and crotch, less flare in leg, no belt loops or piping, and I made the size 2 lower than recommended.

Some of the instructions were a bit odd, especially the double welt pockets and the fly. EmilyKate has some good suggestions if you’re interested in making them.

Again, a link to my full wardrobe review :) Vote if you can!

    Really nice fit. I had similar issues with the instructions for an Alice & Olivia pant pattern.
