Give away – petite size pants pattern

My mistake can be your luck: I bought this pattern and it is a petite size, which I definitely am not. If you would like to have it just leave a comment. The pattern is unopened, still in the original plastic bag. If more than one person is interested, I’ll do a draw on Wednesday.

Impressed by drafting and instructions

Recently at a sewing get together one of my friends was wearing trousers made using Vogue 1417. She told me that the instructions for the pocket were great as there was not a single unfinished edge to be seen after contstruction.


I liked the pattern and am currently working on it and my friend was so right. The draft of the pocket and facings and the instructions are wonderful. Haven’t seen this construction before and love it. In a time there’s a lot being said about lacking instructions this is definitely an example of a pattern well drafted and very good instructions. Of course I’m doing a few things my way, using a woven instead of a stretch. But I did not change a thing to the pockets…
