D.I.Y pants (= Simplicity 2061

Hey you guys ,

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments , you guys truly motivate me! I love you all you're so sweet!
Anyways , so of course I had to make something last night for you guys today & it was a wild night LOL! I got home from my mothers work and ended up falling asleep and waking up at 8:00 pm , I went to my mom and told her I absolutely had to make something , she was a little worried I wouldn't finish in time & I would need alot of help. I wasn't taking no for an answer so I had to figure it out with some guidance from my mommy ,  I ended up staying up till 3 am ( I pretended to go to sleep LOL ssshhhh don't tell my mommy!!!) I don't mind though because it was a  few hours of peace! I think im addicted to sewing!! LOL <3 I had the hardest time with the cuffs on my pants because you have to stretch and sew at the same time, but other than that they are super easy and comfortable ,& I added the bow , it doesn't come with the pattern!! Loving them!!

Pattern Review : Simplicity 

Pattern Description: 
Misses' Knit pants in two lengths.

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 6

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope when you were done?

Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?:  I like the pleats , I like the cuffs but they were a bit hard to attach with the stretching but they came out great.

Fabric Used: Jersey Knit from Joann

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made?
I added a bow!

Would you sew it again?
A million times!!

Would you recommend it to others?

  5. Cute pants Lexi, so good to see someone else catch the sewing bug. Just think of all the possibilities!

  6. Very cute pants...great job!
    I know when that bug hits you to sew, you can stay up for hours~ sometimes not sleeping. You just want to see your project finished~ been there, doing it still.
    Just don't make it a habit so it won't effect your school work~ don't want mama to get in behind you. ;o)

  7. Love them cuffs. And the bow is so girly.
