    A great pattern with clear instructions on how to achieve a perfect fit tailored to the individual. Optional pockets and hem vents give the opportunity to create multiple versions in different fabrics to suit all occasions.

    Trust Rebecca! For my first pair of pants EVER I was a little nervous. Especially around the holidays and especially with a pattern with the word slim in the title. I’ve probably never been associated with that word ever in my life. So I sized up, and that was a mistake. My pair turned out great, and exactly 1 size too big almost everywhere. But for my first muslin pair of pants, I consider it a big success. Directions were very straightforward which is so important for multiple techniques I had never tried before, and after taking in my pants and adding a little to the back darts I am proud to say that I have made my first pair of wearable pants! I see many more in my future.

  12. Kelly Stokes

    Loved this pattern! I was a bit worried about the fly as I’ve always been too scared, but the instructions are written really well with great pics to help you along the way. I’ve had so many compliments about these cargo’s and I can’t wait to make some more!

    Loved, loved, loved these trousers. At first I was dubious whether these would suit me, but when I tried them on I adored them. If you are in two minds, go for it you will not regret it
