Pattern Testing: SBCC 329 - Pinot Pants

I'm really enjoying SBCC patterns at the moment - the whole style seems to suit what I wear and how I live. I mean I love jackets and beautiful dresses but I mostly live in pull-on pants or jeans and t-shirts!

These are a basic pull-on pant with an elastic waist. They have a straightish leg. My TNT pattern for a pull on pant is my Style arc Palazzo pants. These have a straighter leg and fit closer through the thigh.

Pattern details:
Size 1XL
Added 3" to length
Scooped out front and back crotch by 1/2"
Dropped front rise 1"

Fabric its a poly ponte from Lincraft

I found the fit really good straight out of the pattern, my ponte was pretty stretchy so I made a 1XL instead of the 2XL I am in the measurement chart.
The pattern has you stretch the inner leg seams to fit, I had to press mine a lot to get rid of the ripples, the ponte I used was the cheap stuff from Lincraft though so I tend to think it was the fabric causing me issues not the pattern.

These are now my favourite work pants and once I find some nicer ponte I'll be making more.


  1. They look soooo confortable!!! You sold me on your first sentence!

  2. They look really good. I've found that Lincraft ponte is better quality than Spotlight's. Worth checking out.

  3. These look great. Pull-on work pants... I really need some of those :)

  4. It's great when one can locate a good fitting pant pattern. Yours really look nice.
