Sewed several ponchos, working on a free pattern for two different versions. Struggling to update my patterns to all meet the 60” new PF guideline for mention on the program.
Beverly: Jim’s matching vest and fanny pack
Lore Piar Farra Pants Up to 72” hip!
It is a classic 5-pocket pants, with two front pockets, 1 coin pocket, and two back patch pockets.
The fit of this pattern is high-waisted and fitted at the waist, hips, and thighs with negative ease until the knee.
The yoke cut is unique and not only makes this design look special visually but it is also designed to accentuate and give the best shape to your back with the help of two strategically placed darts.
You can choose the style of the leg with 3 different views:
VIEW A: Straight
VIEW B: Wide
VIEW C: Flare
This pattern also comes with 9 embroidery templates to rock on your patch pockets.
