Finally I am writing my review of the Hot Patterns Pirate Queen Ahoy There sailor pants!
From PrintSew, I got a custom sized pattern - I inputed my height, bust, waist, and hip, and received a link to print the pattern.
There were no instructions included with the PrintSew download. I emailed PrintSew asking if they were available and I did not receive a reply. So, none of the chatty talk that usually comes with HP, I was all alone on this one!
Fashion fabric: A navy linen/something blend from Nancy's Sewing Basket in Seattle, it has a little bit of stretch, 3 yards at $12/yard
Hong Kong finish: A navy/white cotton lawn print that was leftover from another project
Interfacing: Pro-woven fusible from SewExciting
I like wide leg but not that wide leg
Reduced the flared legs – As drafted, the bottom hems were >32 inches around – woah! I used the slash and pivot method to take out some of the fullness - I slashed from the hem to the knee, then overlapped at the hem; I did this with all 4 leg pattern pieces.
Will there be a 'next time'?
I’d love to sew this again, and I know it’ll go much faster next time! I’m keeping my eyes peeled for a lightweight stretch denim for another summertime pair.
