The Rear View Pants

Since I started sewing there have be more and more projects that while as one time might have seemed scary, now feel like a breeze. I don’t know if pants will ever be among them, but I figured I just had to try!

So I made these Colette Patterns Clover pants. And you know what? I adore them. The fit is great (ignore the wrinkles, I’ve worn them like five times! Time to wash them…), they were easy to put together, insanely comfortable, and, because I made them in a wool lycra blend, warm and cosy. I can’t wait to make more! Maybe in a sassy Better Draper style plaid, and in stretch twill, for the spring, oh, the possibilities are endless! I wouldn’t say pants are easy, but these pants are really easy. Thanks for the crazy easy to use pattern, Sarai. You are the best.

    These look great! I’m trying to work up the nerve to cut out my muslin— pants are scary!
