Handmade, Pants, Sewing

Wide Leg Pants-Mc Call’s 7661

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I want to share my latest creation, these awesome wide leg pants using McCall’s 7661. I was pleasantly surprised how easy these were to sew. I chose view C, the sash is what makes these pair special, they’re are high waisted, pleated on the front and have darts on the back. Oh and they have pockets!

This avocado green lightweight linen from my stash is perfect for the transition from Summer to Fall sewing. This color is bright but it gives that Fall color feel, You know what I mean? Funny I thing my kitchen walls are exactly the same color. πŸ˜„ I paired them with this old RTW top, I love this one so much I’m going to recreate it soon.

Can you tell I love pants?

I cut a size 14 based on the waistband measurement, my waist is 29″, but I ended up sizing down to a 12 only at the waist. I used an invisible zipper just because I like them better than regular ones. I finished the sash edges with a narrow hem, this was the first time using this particular presser foot on my Baby Lock and it was so easy to use. I forgot to shorten the length when I cut my fabric so I had to cut 2” before hemming, for the record I’m 5′ 3/4″..πŸ˜‚

I forgot to take pictures from the back but I hope you get the idea. I will definitely make these again, next time I’ll use lighter fabric like a crepe or a charmeuse. This is a great pattern for advanced beginners, I highly recommend it!
