I used my go-to shirt pattern McCalls M6124. The review for the shirt is here. This was my first time using Simplicity 1017 for these wide leg pants. Both patterns were sewist friendly to use and the instructions were very easy to follow. [I promise that the pants fit her the crotch is sagging because she was pulling them down from her waist with all the pocket posing going on. Also the pants are extra long for a higher heel and they were sitting on the top of her boot.]
Pattern Description: Amazing Fit Pants!
Pattern Sizing: AMAZING! Just like the pattern title says. You are literally making these pants on your body so there is no way they should not fit you.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? YES!!
Were the instructions easy to follow? They were, I read them quickly before I started the project, just to see what I was getting into. [When sewing it's not necessary that I actually follow the instructions but I do like to see inside their processes on creating these garments.] This is a great pattern for a beginning sewist.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like how you fit the pants to your body before sewing them all together.
Fabric Used: Poly blend Plaid. [Remember if using plaid you will need extra fabric for matching.]
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I always have to add length on my pants for my daughter, this was no different. I also did make my waistband a little wider that the pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and For sure!
Conclusion: Anyone who has fit issues this is a great pattern that you can use for the perfect wide leg pants. The design is plain but clean and classic for any wardrobe.
