Not so basic pants

Very quick and easy sew, fitting was spot on. Thank you Ellie & Mac.

Sew easy!

I bought this pattern for my mom and I helped her make them (she’s learning) and they were extremely easy to make! She’s a beginner and had absolutely no issues at all. She made the straight leg and they looked amazing on her! The pattern is easy to read and the photo tutorial was great!

Favorite pants EVER!

I have now made 3 pairs of these not so basic pants, and the only problem is choosing what fabric to make them with next! I have only made the wide leg full length (+ 2" because I'm 5'8) all in double brushed poly (or DTY? they are all walmart value cuts with no fabric description). I seriously live in these pants now, because A. they are comfy and cute and B. I have put on a few pandemic pounds and well, they are knit! I do want to try the ruffles eventually, they are oh so cute on all the testers!


I don’t know what took me so long to make these, but these are awesome. I was worried that i would have to grade and adjust the rise, but these were perfect. This is going to be a work staple. I made the wide Capri with no ruffle.

Quick, easy, and great looking

I made the wide leg version without the ruffle twice and they practically fell together it was so easy! I added patch pockets for my 8 YO, and that took as long as putting the rest of the pants together, it was so quick. This is definitely going to become a wardrobe staple.
