DONE! Simplicity 2860 Pants

Well I finally finished and I’m very happy with the results. This really is an easy pattern to make. It’s an “Amazing Fit” pattern with pattern pieces for slim, average, or curvy fit. I made these with the average  pieces and made no adjustments. 


I used a light weight polyester suiting material. The only downside is that the pants aren’t quite hefty enough to make it into the winter, so I’ll be making another pair. But the great thing about this pattern is that it can be used for all seasons depending on your fabric choices. 


The contour waistband is great and I would LOVE to find a skirt pattern with the same type of fit. As you can see, there are belt loops which I’m sure you could leave off if you wanted. I paired this with the Jalie T-shirt I made a while back.

I hope to get my next project up and running sooner than later.

Until then…

  1. I can't say I recommend it more, although I do recommend it. There are no pockets, so I'd like to find a well-fitting pattern with pockets too. Thanks, Claire!

  2. Great pants and love it with the top. I have this pattern but I had to do a lot of tweaking to get the fit right. Kudos to you sewing straight from the pattern and getting such a great fit.

  3. The pants look amazing! Great job. Are you able to post a picture of the pattern envelope when you pits about what you've made? I'd like to know if I already have that pattern in my stash.
