Surprisingly versatile pattern

I didn't really notice how many different looking garments one can make with this pattern. But when you combine the different waistbands, pant leg styles and pocket options, they really add up. This pattern offers great bang for the buck. I've made the paperbag waist shorts shorter shorts with beltloops and belt, inseam pockets and back pockets; the longer shorts without paperbag waist or belt but with inseam pockets and back pockets; and the tapered pants regular waist, inseam pockets and back pockets.

My measurements would have put me in a size 12 but I made size 10 shorts and size 8 tapered pants. I had to add 1/4" to the thighs of the size 8 pants to make a perfect fit. Note that I used the size 10 back rise and the size 6 front rise for all pairs for my particular fitting issues. I'm just saying that the design is a little roomier than I wanted. I also felt that the back pockets were placed a little high and lowered them 3/8". However, all these are just personal preferences.

As usual, Megan Nielsen has the best fitting crotch curve out there!

Comfy and relaxed pants!

I had so much fun sewing the Opal pants. I made view B and added the side pockets. I also added the belt loops and was so happy with them I made a belt! The sew-along was very helpful.
Thank you so much Megan for your patterns.

I love these pants! Really great to dress up or down, depending on the event. I've made one, and already have two others I plan on making.
