My first Pair of Pants

Added Jun 15, 2008

by stephiaffi

Vienna, Austria






I used the Nichola pattern, but omitted the pockets. I used size 40, as I did for my dress, but they turned out far too big and I had to take them in twice, which was a bit of a pain. They are still a bit wide when I wear them for some time. I think that’s because of the slightly stretchy material I used.

Material Notes

slightly stretchy cotton ?? & old buttons I found




Garment Type

    Yes, toupinette, I did use a zipper, just like it said in the instructions…didn’t make any changes…
