PR: Self Drafted Pants

Pattern Description: Self Drafted Trousers with Flared Leg

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? N/A It did however look the way I imagined they would when I drafted them..lol

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love this style of trouser, it is very flattering.

Fabric Used: I used a linen which I will prob not do again just because linen grows so much while you wear them. I think i would like them in a stiffer fabric too. Also, I wore them this morning to church so there are a few wrinkles in them which is another reason why I tend not to use linen that is not blended.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I knew the linen would be very lightweight and I wanted my hem to hang heavy and keep the inseam straight so I add 2" of fusible interfacing to the hem and that worked like a charm.

Conclusion: I really like these and I am most proud of my pant pattern.
