StyleArc, please, will you stop already? Every new pattern I see from you, I MUST have! This pant pattern was no exception and I ordered with leather look coated black stretch bengaline fabric. Both the pattern and the fabric are just awesome!
Are you drooling yet? Look at all those details! Patterns such as this one are so in right now! Remember the Jalie, Eleanor? Welp, this one is very similar. Even if you have the Eleanor, this pattern is just different enough that you must purchase it as well. :) Trust me!
Here is the description from StyleArc's site: Georgie has all the details of a traditional jean with the exception that its pulls on. This elastic waisted jean has the latest styling and shape along with comfort as it sits on the natural waist.
Sizing as always is just spot on for StyleArc. I purchased the 12 and it fits me like a glove. I made zero modifications to the pattern and these are so very comfortable and I just love the leather look of the pant. I am 5'7" and the length of these is perfect. I made a 5/8" single-folded hem.
As I was putting these together, I wondered why the construction process was written the way it was. I deviated from the directions and found that they were right and I should have followed the directions verbatim. Next time I will. Just trust me on this...:)
A couple of notes about the process. The pattern is written for stretch fabrics that do not need the finish of a serger. While this bengaline doesn't seem to fray, I used a serger anyway because I like the finish as I believe it creates a stronger seam and it looks so nice on the inside. Anyone agree?
Sorry about the wrinkles! I wore these out to dinner. It is my anniversary.
I normally hate seeing photos of my lower half! These are fun pants to wear. I hope you'll give them a try!
Thanks for reading!
