Pants Pants Pants!
So I’m into the Monthly Stitch challenges and the February challenge was to sew pants. The April challenge is multiples – so I’m a little ahead : ) Actually, I sew most garments in at least 2’s, so I’m still thinking about how to make the April challenge more exciting.
These are Style Arc’s Wallis ponte pants.
I started with the black ponte Italian knit and they are yummy! Heavyweight fabric so I feel secure in them. The middle pair is a super stretchy jacquard print of leaves and I have no idea from where it came, it just made great pants. The third pair is a reddish brown bottom weight knit. My local fabric store had it on the clearance rack because there was fading on the center fold. That wasn’t a problem because cutting out pants doesn’t use the center fold : )
On the brown pair you can actually see the seam rolling forward – it is a design feature of these pants. I did add width in the calves on the brown pair. The leaf pair sometimes bunch at the knees and need to be pulled down periodically – like after sitting…but they will be great tucked into boots.
I’m quite happy with my new legging type stretchy pants that are long enough and quick to make!
Happy Creating everyone!
