Easy to follow, great result.
So easy to make and so comfortable, highly recommended
I can't stop making these pants. I absolutely love them. Sew easy. X
I wanted sleep pants that did not have a side seam and elastic, so I sewed two pair of the not-so-basic pants — straight leg and no ruffle. They are a quick sew, fit perfectly and are super comfortable! I plan to make several more for daytime wear this fall. Thanks, Ellie and Mac!
These pants came out perfect! I made them for a teenager and she absolutely loved them.
I made my first pair of not so basic pants last week, and I'm now on the fourth pair. So easy, quick and simple. I've made a smart pair in scuba, another in a structured jersey, and 2 pairs to use as lounge pants. I prefer the wide leg palazzo style, which is incredibly quick and simple to sew. I watched Diana's video on them, and the one where she uses this pattern to make a lounging set whcih gave me the inspiration to use them as pyjamas. Very happy with my purchase and highly recommended
I did the wide leg version without ruffles as a lounge pant to go with a matching Fall in Love top. The pants went together quickly and fit well, but the style was not best for me - I have short legs and the proportion was off. These would be great on a taller person.
I love these!! I've been making lounge pants out of this pattern and I am totally obsessed! I may throw away all my old ones and just make all new ones with these options. I do a wide leg and a straight leg. I paired it with the over sized t-shirt pattern for an entire lounge outfit. They're perfect.
It is always nice to have the fitting issues of pants addressed in the instructions. Thank you too for the inclusive sizing! :) And they really aren't as full as it seems when you look at that W-I-D-E leg! I LOVE my comfy pants. Wearing them to work is like a secret dress down day for myself; because I look fancy but am really quite comfortable.
I am happy to have a fun pair of pants I can make over and over to wear
