Simplicity 3686


I'm really getting the hang of transferring my personal figure variation to commercial patterns. I lengthend the back crotch my adding to the crotch point and adding a 1 1/2" wedge to the back. I'm pretty satisfied with them.

I really like the pocket detail as I've become obsessed with pockets lately. I didn't much stick to the instructions and was a bit perturbed that the there are 13 pattern pieces! The contoured band is very comfortable with no gaping in the back. I don't think I'll make them again as the finished pant leg is 31" wide of which the style may not be around much longer.


Next pair up is either Simplicity 2860 or Vogue 7881.

  8. The only part about pants with pockets are the extra pieces. Between the pockets, facings, waistbands, etc. - it all adds up. Your pair of pants look so nice, I'm sure it was worth the hassle!

  9. You look fantastic!! You've done a great job making the pattern work for you. The pocket detail is wonderful. I really don't like having lots of little pieces to cut out either.
