I rarely follow the instructions to a pattern because for some reason my brain just can't comprehend. My brain is motion visual (if that's even a thing). Meaning, in order for me to comprehend I have to see someone do it then attempt it myself. Also, I noticed a lot of Simplicity patterns aren't the most detailed (I've read that on several other blogs as well). I only tried to follow the instructions because this was my first time inserting pockets. Seems intimidating but after one video on YouTube it was very easy. Sewing the rest of the pants was easy (to me) because I have made several shorts and its basically the same construction.
I wore them last night the State Fair's Preview Gala. This year, I am working with Palmetto Health Foundation as a Pinkador. You can find more information on that on my post for FIG.
I cut them a bit bigger, I could take them in a few inches (and I may) but right now I'm liking the MC Hammer style.
As mentioned in the title, these are my new favorite pants. The only issue I had was they fabric was too light and very stretchy. Now I know why a lot of sewers aren't fan of knit stretch. One trick I read was to place a thin sheet of paper underneath the fabric while sewing to help keep it stabilized.
Now to get more fabric!
