- The construction is very simple. There are no pockets, there is no topstitching (other than hemming, if you count that as topstitching). The buttonhole elastic is easy to use and/or easy to make yourself if you don’t have it on hand. This pattern is totally appropriate for anyone who hasn’t sewn pants before.
- It gives you an excuse to use all those fun fashion bottom weights at your local fabric store. I bought enough fabric to make Abby three pairs of hosh pants, and believe me, I was holding back. There is no side seam which allows you to use awesome prints without worrying about matching things up at the seams.
- Sarah’s instructions are clear and easy to follow. I’ve sewn A LOT of pdf sewing patterns, and I feel like I can tell a good pattern when I see one. This is a good pattern.
- From start to finish, these pants only take about an hour and a half to sew. I actually made another pair today while my husband picked our son up from school, which took about an hour.
Speaking of KCW, are any of you going to participate? It feels like long time since I had the time to sew every single day for a week, but I’ll do what I can. I LOVE seeing the community come together during KCW, so I’ll be watching even if I’m writing more than sewing next week!
Love you all and thank you for reading. Have a great Wednesday!
