Omoleye and her mother Rosebud took advantage of some free open sewing studio time last week to get a good handle on pants.
She chose the Sasha Pant by Closet Case Patterns. After downloading the PDF and getting the printed patterns from PDF Plotting, she was off and running.
This pattern fit really well right out of the package – we had to do just a tiny intake at the side seam of the waist, but that was more academic than actually necessary. Partially it was because of the wool she used that had a good deal of crossgrain stretch and partially because it is just a nice pattern for a shape that has hips that are full but not particularly round and a smaller waist.
The instruction are pretty good, too. We had to introduce the techniques used, but after the introduction to the technique, the instructions themselves made sense and were pretty clear.
Overall, the shape is VERY Laura Petrie, in our opinion – a nice mid-century fitted slack rather than a proper trouser shape.
She did a great job on these!
