Colette Patterns: 1024 Juniper Pant
Well I think everyone knows I love a wide leg pant and Colette patterns tend to fit me quite well so I ordered this pattern as soon as I saw it.
The pattern is a basic wide leg pant (drafted as a trouser not a jean). I used my pants block which was a life saver as the front crotch curve on these is almost a straight line, you can see my block underneath and the original pattern piece on top in this pic;
Otherwise the legs are pretty much a sz16/18 but I have sewn these with stretch denim when they recommend a woven fabric.
I had to take them in on the legs a bit as they are drafted quite wide and almost taper slightly to the ankle. I added in a pocket stay too as they aren't drafted with one.
