These beach pants were made as a part of the Portland Sewing class, Beginning Sewing 2. They have an elastic waistband, and two back pockets. You can make them in capri length, or full length. I chose to use a hemp linen fabric from Anna Cohen which I love. I chose the fabric to be professional looking, so that I could wear these pants to work. And the shirt is the shirt that I made in beginning sewing 3.
This pattern comes in size 6-22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
In our class, we did paper fitting, where we used pins to pin the front and back half of the pants together, and made sure that the center front and back line are in the middle. From this paper fitting, I did make one small adjustment to the back. I liked how this pattern fit well, and it is a very easy pair of pants to make, great for your first pair.
Hemp linen from Anna Cohen.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Added some extra crotch length in the back.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would not sew it again, because I’m not a fan of elastic waistbands. But I would recommend it to others for their first pair of pants.
