I've made up the drawstring pants from V1522 and I love them. They will probably become a TNT. DD has cheerfully inherited the top which was way more her style than mine, but other shortish tops like my churn-out-one-or-two-a-season Simplicity 1366 work well with these pants too.
They were a trial run out of a stash chocolate brown beefy slinky knit. I think they are supposed to be cropped and finish somewhere just above the ankle, or they would if you were regular height. I am 5' nothing and this length is straight out of the packet. The droopy knit made them drop a bit. I normally start by folding out 3" out of any Vogue pant pattern.
Now to the good stuff. They are an easy sew. The pockets are applied to the fronts first which takes the most time then it's zoom zoom from there. Size Medium is a bit roomy but once again that is probably the material. The tapered shape of the leg is good - I think they are 'just so'. The instructions are good. There will be more of these in my sewing future.
I've lightened the photos a bit. I had to pick up my tripod and run inside because it started to rain. On other matters I've been exploring the new-to-me world of Instagram as it seems to be the way of the future. It's faster, easier and would still give a record of what I've been sewing. What do you guys think of Instagram?
