Victoria profile image Super quick and easy to make
Reviewer: Victoria

This was the first pair of pants I ever made and couldn't be happier. After printing, putting together and tracing the pattern it should take maybe 2 hours to make these. Instructions are clear and simple to follow. The one thing I would recommend is to downsize, this pattern is OVERSIZED. According to the chart I had to make a 22 (I usually wear a 10/12) and my 6.5 tall boyfriend ended up wearing them. I am making these again but in my size very soon.

Kate profile image Really big for the size.
Reviewer: Kate

I know other people have said this and I took it into account when I cut them out, trimmed about an inch off on either side and adjusted the middle seam as well. But the thing that is really tricky for me is that even after cutting the waistband in half and using one round of waistband elastic, the crotch either hits me halfway to the knee or, if I pull them up so the crotch is in the right place, the waistband is up around my ribcage! I'm going to take them apart and rework them again. I was looking for relaxed fitting but this is just plain silly. If there is a new pattern for pants that is not quite so generous, what is it called? Too late for this pair but I would use it next time.

Patricia profile image Seam Allowance Question
Reviewer: Patricia

I have a question about the seam allowance on these pants. The pattern calls for a 3/8" seam allowance but in the tutorial it says to sew a 5/8" seam. Also, in the pocket tutorial it states, "When sewing flat-felled seams, remember to increase the seam allowance of your pattern to 5/8?". What is the correct seam allowance?

Good afternoon! Thank you for noticing the discrepancy. It was a typo on the pattern itself - we just fixed it. The seam allowance should be 5/8" on these pants.

Jennifer M profile image Very comfortable pants
Reviewer: Jennifer M

This pattern runs very large. This is shown in the finished garment measurements, so keep that in mind. I used two sizes smaller than suggested and took them in slightly more in the leg, they are still very generously sized with a six inch ease to my measurements. I also chose to leave off the top elastic for a paper bag look that is better scaled to my stature (shorter ruffs). I will put the third in when I tire of that look. My daughter is in her early twenties and this is the first time she has expressed a desire for me to sew her something. I used the heavy weight natural linen, and it was a dream to work with. They are already my favorite pants, so I am planning a lighter weight version for summer. I may decide to shorten the rise slightly, but I found it to be consistent for a lounge pant, but prefer a little less ease in the crotch. I did find the instructions a bit hard to follow. I changed the pocket to extend it to the waistband to make the pocket a bit more stable. If this were my first project I may have found it harder to put together properly, as instructed, and that is why I felt I must only give four stars. If you have any sewing experience, it is pretty simple. Partly I blame the low number of notches on the pattern, I drafted a couple more in to help me next time. This was a great confidence booster project for me, and my most worn handmade item so far.

Fabrics-store buyer profile image Easy and fit so well!
Reviewer: Anonymous

First pair of trousers I have made and I'm amazed at how they came out! They look great with a pocket on the back. For those of you worried about other reviews, the sizing is accurate - people have just been taken aback by the loose cut. I'm going to make another pair!

Caroline profile image crisp linen pants
Reviewer: Caroline

Hi There, I had the same problem that i made the 4-6, which is definitely my size, but they are enormous on me. You mentioned that you are working on the pattern? I just wondered how far off this is? Thanks so much

Hi Caroline - this particular pair of pants is intended to be extra roomy. The more fitted design is being drafted and should be available soon - hopefully by end of this month. Have a great day!

Lesley profile image Sizing was a big issue for me!
Reviewer: Lesley

I love the pants, but the sizing was all wrong! If I had finished them as they were printed, they would have looked like clown pants. I am a 4-6, but I ended up taking an inch out of each piece around the center line, then an inch tapering to 2" on the inner leg seam to the ankle. I noticed another sewer had the same issue and am surprised everyone hasn't.

Good morning! Thank you for your feedback and glad to hear you were able to tailor it to you. The original design was intended to be super roomy :) We are working on some more fitted styles so stay tuned for those.

Kathleen profile image Fantastic pattern
Reviewer: Kathleen

Just completed this pattern using middle weight linen, It turned out fantastic! The pocket tutorial was easy to follow and understand. The finished garment looks like I shopped at a a high end store.

Reviewer: Christina

I made these up in the dark blue and they look fabulous. I am tickled to make such an expensive looking pair of pants that fit so well. I have used several patterns now and kudos to the pattern makers.

Fabrics-store buyer profile image Sizing problem
Reviewer: Anonymous

Hello, can I ask what size is wearing the model on the picture ? Because I have big troubles with the sizing .... I understand that the pattern sujest a loose fit, but it`s actually huge on me. The very first time I have cut size 8 / 10, I wear 38 EU since I was eighteen, which means my measures are always the same ...... 20 years later..... which is corresponding to size 8, I think....But this pattern and Louise Pants Pattern doesn`t work for me - even size 0/2 are extremely big on me. I can` t undrestand where the problem is - I have checked the size chart few times ...... And for the record - I don` t sew from yesterday and I have made a few of your dresses and blouses, everything with the other patterns is absolutely perfect So can you help me to resolve this problem ? Thank you.

Hello Diana, thank you for reaching out with your question. I spoke with Masha and she confirmed that the pants are intended to be a vulumptuous fit - very loose fitting. Her recomendation was to select the smallest size pattern and she said the key is to make the elastic in the waist to your exact size. So the idea is that you take the elastic and gather the linen fabric at the waist to the elastic which is fitted to your waist. Hope this helps. Sound like you just need to tighten the elastic and your pants will be ready to wear :)
