Patrones pants DD finished

The pants are finished. DD is not sure about the style on her. Not very surprising, she usually wears jeans, and this is much wider than jeans. But I like the pants, and in the end they were very easy to construct. As I mention in my review too, the size was pretty close, which adds to my liking of this magazine. It's good to know that you can rely on a size chart. The only change after the first fitting was letting out waist and hip a little bit (but not so much as needing a larger size) and make the crotch depth a bit deeper.

 

 

The waistband is a separate piece, I don't know if I've done this correct, but it at least looks like the magazine.

This issue of Patrones (264) is certainly a keeper, there are a lot of patterns I like in it.

A few pictures, the yellow jacket en the top are high on my "to sew" list. The pictures sometimes are the same as in BWOF: the details are hidden, and with Patrones no website with pictures to see them in more detail.

  1. I LOVE the waistband treatment. Tell DD that these pants are all the rage in the fall styles coming out right now in the magazines. She's going to be the coolest girl in school!

  2. Yes, that's how my waistband/separate belt is, too! You've got it right! I made the yellow jacket as part of my Easter Suit, and it is gorgeous made up - there are a lot of details not shown, such as the bound buttonholes, but I know you'll do a great job on it. (You always do!). I've wanted that lighter colored jacket, too. Which reminds me, maybe I can put my royal blue fabric to good use and make it . . hmm . . .

  3. The pants look great! To make them cooler, wear them with flats or sneakers.

    Those Patrone garments look really nice. I suppose they have line drawings in the mag?

  4. The trousers turned out fabulous! I am surprised that a 44 isn't too big on your daughter, though I never tried Patrones pants before (maybe I'll get the chance on my next project). I can say size 42 fits me very well as dresses and blouses.
    That is one of my favorite recent Patrones issues too; I love the jacket that Summerset made in red...

  5. Oh, I have this issue too. I love the yellow jacket. DD is going to be very hip in these pants. I concur on the sneakers. Converse or Vans are the thing, according to my dd

  6. Very cute! I'm going to have to give a try to one of the patterns in the issue I have!

    Always love your inspiration and such attention to detail!

    Hope your DD enjoys wearing these.

  7. Hey!
    I made the yellow jacket and sadly the collar seems to be smaller on the photo than in real, so the collar turned out beeing HUGE. Just wanted to tell you that in case you dont like big collars like me :)

  8. Hi Sigrid .- trousers was perfect, you also chose a fabric pretty well and very apparent to this model. You have to do the yellow jacket, is a model that I love, really, even the color. Also emerging trends mark the use of jackets like this, a little wider and straight. Best wishes, Paco.


    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog, see you soon.
