This has become one of my most favorite patterns to sew. The tops have turned out well, and the pants are exactly the same as the $40 Eddie Bauer pants I bought a few years ago for work. The fit is slimming, the fabric (cotton twill) is comfortable and easy to care for. I have another pair cut and ready to sew in black cotton sateen.
I used a 3/4" wide elastic instead of the waistband stay here. Another Eddie Bauer trick that keeps shirts tucked in and prevents waistbands from growing over time. Pretty straightforward and simple, helps the fit in the waist considerably.
Apologies for the blog mess, I'm hurrying, and it's showing! Anyhow, you can find the review at PR here.
Coming Soon: These pants in black cotton sateen, and my 2nd wardrobe piece, a skirt from the same fabric. 2 yards of black cotton sateen 60" wide is turning into another pair of Eddie Bauer knock-offs and another BWOF skirt... amazing!
