I have finally been sewing for me again, and have several items in the works due to testing 3 new patterns – YAY!
First up in the Palazzo Pants from Patterns for Pirates, Judy started out designing cute patterns for our boys who always seem to miss out in the fashion stakes and has since branched out into patterns for their Mummas (and a few for Dads too).
This is her first foray in to pants for ladies, and if you are after a pair of pants that can be made super dressy for work or a night out but still like a bit of comfort with your glam these are what you are after. Of course when lounging around comfort comes first and these pants are perfect for that too.
The pants can be made in a variety of lengths, making them suitable for exercise, and there is a choice of an enclosed elasticated waist, or a folded yoga waist. I made both the capri and full length versions with the Yoga waist in both a 2-way and 4-way polyester knit.
The tutorial is simple to follow with clear photographs. Once you have printed and taped this pattern (which comes together with ease) you will find they take less than half an hour to make, and who doesn’t love a fast sew.
The pattern comes in sizes XXS – XXXXL and can be found here on sale today with a bonus free cardigan (today only so download it immediately) pattern (size Medium). This bonus cardigan will be going into testing soon.
