100 Acts of Sewing Patterns - Pants No. 1
Beyond Measure is delighted to be the exclusive UK retailer of the 100 Acts of Sewing patterns from US maker Sonya Philip.
Sonya developed the series as part of her slow sewing project 100 Acts of Sewing and has created a cult following for these simple but beautiful patterns. Used as they are, they create easy fitting, comfortable garments, ideal to show off your special fabrics. As your confidence grows, you will be customising and personalising the clothes to create an exciting and unique wardrobe! You can find lots of ideas and tutorials on Sonya’s blog.
Pants No. 1 is an elastic-waist pair of cropped pants with a relaxed fit. Make your handmade wardrobe complete with multiple pairs of fancy pants! The pattern calls for mid-weight fabric, such as linen, cotton, or natural fibre blend. Make them bright and cheery in a cotton print or cool and smart in a light linen – you will get lots of mileage from these!
You will need approx 2.5 yards (2.3 meters) of 45 inch (114 cm) wide fabric.
An instruction booklet walks you through the steps, from tracing and cutting the pattern pieces, to inserting the elastic waistband. The pattern is printed on two sheets of thick white paper, with eight nested sizes.
