My friend Sheren has heard my complaints of pants fitting woes throughout the years. Last month she showed me a pair of pants that she was wearing that had a elastic waist that were very stylish. She suggested that I might try making a pair for myself. I took her suggestion to heart. Here are my “Not Your Grandmother's Elastic Waist Pants!”
New Look 6315.
Herringbone Print, Wool/ Acrylic/Polyester Blend, Hancock Fabrics.
Thread, 1 ¼” wide elastic.
U.S. 10 - 22.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are clear and simple.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern was listed as “Just 4 Knits” and I love the modern/causal style it offered for pants with an elastic waist.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut the pants in a size 12 and there were no fitting issues! I love this pattern!
Would you made it again?
Would you recommend it to others?
Very nice pants!
