Let the Fall Sewing Begin! Simplicity 8093

The September Equinox is expected to arrive tomorrow and I’m so ready! I have one more summer project review, but I couldn’t wait to share these cute wide leg cropped pants I made using Simplicity 8093. Fall is my favorite season and I love to sew pants. I have so many patterns on my “To sew list” and since the season is so short here in the midwest I decided to start early.


This pattern is very easy to sew. I only did two things differently: For the front pleats you’re supposed to fold along solid lines then bring the folds to broken lines and baste across the raw edge. I sewed the folds together just like you would a dart, as I liked how the pleats look this way. Also, for the belt loops the instructions have you attaching them to the waistband. Instead I sewed them directly to the pants and after I attached the waistband I sewed the other side of the loops. This way was easier for me. I used a crepe suiting fabric from my stash, as I knew I wanted to make pants with it and this was perfect because it has a beautiful drape.



I think this pattern might be out of print therefore I’m not going to make a full review. If you are anything like me and have this pattern on your sewing queue you should do it already! You won’t be disappointed. This is a Mimi G pattern so don’t forget there is a video tutorial on You Tube. I didn’t have to watch the video because the instructions were very easy to follow. I think I’m going to make another pair with a brighter color. We’ll see how long my sewing mojo lasts. What’s on your sewing table? Are the Seasons changing in your neck of the woods?
