When Taree reached out to me and told me she wanted to call her next pattern, The Alexis Pants, my first thought was why? Hahaha, kidding! I was on complete shock and was truly honored!!
On top of the great name is that are FREAKING SO CUTE!! Not to mention very on trend! I see slouchy pants in every RTW store and every fashion magazine.
I still can’t believe I am sewing pleats in my pants. I used to cringe when I saw pleats in pants. HA!
Little bit about the pattern before I share the 3 pants I. made… Available in sizes 2-22 (waist width 24″- 44″). The pattern calls for 2.7- 3.3 yards of 56″ fabric. The pattern is best for intermediate sewist. The pattern is best for woven fabrics like cotton, linen and wool.
As mentioned above, I made 3 pairs of pants. In each I made slightly different sizes.
The first pair of pants I made, I started with a size 8 in the waist and a size 6 in the waist. After my first fit check I took in the waist about an 1″ (basically a size 6). This was my very first pair before testing had started. My waist is 30″ and hips 36 1/2″.
The 2nd pair I made I did cut a size 6 in the waist and hips.
Last pair I made, I cut a size 6 in the waist and a size 4 in the hips for a tailored fit.
