Another Pair of Pants

I made another pair of pants!  OH, yeah!  They look orange, but actually they are RED! 

Special Thanks goes to Beverly Reece from work for taking my picture today.


Pattern Description:
Very Easy Vogue 8541 – Out of Print – Misses’ Jacket, Skirt and Pants. Pull-on pants D have elastic casing and straight legs. I only made the pants. This is my 2nd time making these pants.

Pattern Sizing:

16-24. I made the 16.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Absolutely Yes!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
The last time I made these pants - I sewed both pant front to pant back the same way... This time - I GOT IT RIGHT!  This was a fast & easy project that I was able to complete in about 5 - 6 hours (I'm slow! LOL! But, I started and finished in one day - and, for me that's FAST).
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I made it, I love it! 

Fabric Used:
I used a red cotton blend textured suiting or something like that - it was on clearance for $1.95 per yard at a few months ago. 

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No changes made.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Super easy to make and you can dress 'em up or dress 'em down.  Yes, I will make it again.   

I love these pants & I received a lot of compliments! Winning! 

Needles Up,
Always Audrey


  1. Looks great! I'm working on pants, too. It is a nice feeling to have something fit and finished!

  2. You are SO Right! I love these pants! And, with the elastic waistband - they are super easy to make. I can't wait to see your finished pants.
