So….remember when I made my Black & White Floral Riding Jacket worn HERE? well I had just over a yard of that amazing fabric left and so I decided to put it to good use and make some pants from a pattern I had been meaning to try anyway… Butterick 5895
Pattern Description: Semi-fitted, tapered jeans (rolled-up, wrong side shows) have waistband, side front pockets, stitched hems, and back zipper.
Fabric Used: Floral Textured Knit found HERE and make sure to use the code “MIMIMAY10”
Pattern Sizing: I cut the 6
Were the instructions easy to follow? The pattern instructions are well written and pretty basic when it comes to construction, I did not use them but I did read them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Well I love a high waist pant and and when I saw Gertie’s pattern I knew I was going to give it try but with some changes.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I omitted the pockets because I wanted a very flat and smooth front and I didn’t think the pockets worked well with this fabric. I also was not planning on wearing them rolled up so I added 2″ to the length but now after making them I think I should have added 3-4″ to the length because the pattern is intended to be worn above the calf.
Would you sew it again? Yes, I plan to make them in a stretch denim.
