Firstly thank you for the Alena pants, it's a lovely pattern. I'm making a wearable toile and I'm stuck at sewing the waistband pieces together. Can you please explain the left and right waistband pattern pieces, do I sew them together at the straight edge of the band or the slanted end? Thank you
hello!! It is not clear to me if all the pattern pieces have seam allowance included or it is just included in the front and back pieces and I have to add the seam allowance to the rest of them. Thanks your help
Hello, the seam allowance is included for the entire pattern. :)
Hi. I have not understood if the seam allowances were already included in the pattern or if I should add them before cutting the fabric. Thanks a lot for your help !
Hi! On the main front and back pattern pieces, there is a notation mentioning that the seam allowances are included. I can see how that could be overlooked. We are hoping to update these popular patterns in the near future to have more content and tutorials.
I had no issues getting the pattern and have all my fabric cut. I've never sewn a zip fly and would love some instructions with more detail on this pattern. I see in other reviews that this one doesn't have a tutorial. I'll be making it in a cotton woven first to make sure the sizing is perfect when I use my fancy linen. Thank you!
Hi! On page 7 of this PDF there are some basic sewing instructions that go over the sewing steps. We don't have a visual step-by-step tutorial for the zip fly ( I've emailed the blog ladies and asked them to add that to our to-do list), we do have one for button fly tutorial here blog.fabrics-store.com/2018/11/30/sewing-glossary-how-to-sew-a-button-fly-tutorial/ But I am afraid it won't be enough info to get you to the finished project so please email us at ask Fabrics-store.com and Catina will be able to walk you step by step through the zip fly :)
I am very keen to make this pattern however it says there is a step by step tutorial on the blog which I haven't been able to find. Due to it being my first time making pants the steps included in the pattern are a little tricky so I am hoping the tutorial will be uploaded soon
Good evening - this is one of our first patterns and we don't have a step by step tutorial for it. You will have the sewing steps included in the PDF file. And if you get stuck somewhere - please email us and we will be happy to help :)
The pattern was easy to read, just make sure you actually follow the instructions in the document, otherwise you will run into this issue of not seeing the actual pattern. It's well-detailed in the download.
I cannot find the actual pattern. Only see the flat drawing..
Hi - the printable pattern pieces are included as attachments in the main PDF file. Once you have the file opened in Adobe Reader. In the Adobe Reader menu select View - Show/Hide - Navigation Panes - Attachments. Once you click Attachments - Adobe will show the attached files where the pattern pieces themselves are. Hope this helps and I am sending you an email with pictures of the steps just in case :)
