Love the paperbag waistband!

Loving these paperbag waistband pants I made. Super easy pattern with sizes up to 30. Although next time I will probably do a petite adjustment in addition to tapering the legs a bit more. I used a printed canvas fabric by Rifle Paper Co and have already gotten a ton of compliments. I tagged you on Facebook if you want to see a picture.

Great shorts pattern!

I put together my first pair of the Opal shorts this weekend and it was so straightforward and a really quick make. They're really comfy and a great fit for me - I made a 14 (W81cm H105cm 172cm tall) with no mods apart from doing french seams on the insides to stop the linen from fraying. Keen to try the pants version next! The only change I would make is widening the patch pocket - as is it doesnt fit my phone.

Opal Curve Shorts

Great fit and easy to follow instructions. Have made 3 pair of shorts and working on the 4th. The modular pattern allows simple adjustments to have a different pair each time you construct.

Absolute Comfort

I was a tester for this pattern and let me tell you I love this pattern. I have 4 makes - 2 pairs of pants and 2 pairs of shorts. The paperbag waistband is my favorite version because it is so comfortable. On view B you may want to go down a size because of the generous amount of ease built into the pattern. The instructions are extremely detailed and I had no problem sewing this pattern.

Here are the links for my makes.

Nice comfy pants

I made a pair of linen pants from this pattern, I had to make a few adjustments, the size runs quite large and I had to cut a lot off the bottom and the waist. If I was to make it again, would make a size smaller and also the straight leg version, there is a lot of fabric in this. Good instructions and overall happy with the outcome.
