I have been sewing for quite a few years, and have gone from making simple woven/knit dresses for my daughter, to making jackets and swimsuits.
So, what is one article of clothing you would say is a great next step for sewing and knowledge?
Pants with a zip fly? YES
Laela Jeyne Patterns (Marisa Ryniak) has made a pant collection of PDF Patterns for the WHOLE family! This is so exciting, and I know some of you are terrified of sewing a zip fly. I am here to tell you that it is not hard AT ALL. The instructions in each pattern has such great attention to detail. Plus, I can guarantee that there will be so many people making these pants, that any questions can be asked in the Facebook Group.
So, please, if you think making pants are going to be too hard, understand that making custom pants to fit your exact body are worth all of it!
All of the pants in the Wanderlust Collection are designed for non stretch woven fabric. Think twill, suiting, or a medium weight linen blend. There are two styles of pants for women: the Ivy Pants and the Willow Pants.
The Ivy pants are a slim fit chino style of pants. They can have welt back pockets and front pockets as well.
Here are my Ivy Trousers.
I love these pants. They are modern and very stylish. They can be dressed up or down, so they can be worn for anything.
So, I may have wanted a pair of Ivy pants with no back pockets, so my khaki pair do not have those. But I LOVE them.
I am going to do a quick rundown on all of the pants in the Collection so everyone has an idea of which pattern (or all) you need:
Ivy- Women’s sizes 00-26, shorts, cropped, or full length, welt back pockets, slightly fitted, non stretch woven.
Willow– Women’s sizes 00-26, shorts, cropped, or full length, paper bag style pleated waist.
Reed– Men’s Trousers, made for non stretch woven fabric, slim/relaxed fit through the leg, welt back pockets, hip sizes 32″-54″.
Wren– Girls Skinny Jeans size 12 month-10 years, made for non stretch woven fabric, back yoke and back pockets.
