My first purchase was a trio of black, chartreuse, and beige yardages for fall/winter weight pull on pants. January was my month to sew separates, and I decided that this would be a great time to sew up a few pants to compliment my wardrobe. Black and beige neutrals are always a plus, but I had to have the chartreuse; something a little different from the norm.
Today, I’m featuring two of the three pants that I made using Christine Jonson center seam pants from her Travel Trio 1 pattern collection. The marrying of the pattern and the ponte knit was perfect. The sewing process was quick and easy. The result is two great pair of pants.
I decided to play up the center seam with some top stitching. This is a nice little detail to show off the seaming. I almost love the pant leg shaping; not to skinny and great for wearing boots. These pants can take you from casual work gear to night out on the town. In the picture above, you can see I didn’t do due diligence with the pressing. But I’ll take care of that later. NOTE: be careful when you press. The high synthetic fiber may be a little challenging.
The only other notable change that I made to the pant was to lengthen them a few inches to cover my extremely long legs.
This certainly will not be the last time I purchase Mood’s ponte knit. I want it in every color. I invite you to try it. You won’t be disappointed. There are ten delicious colors available at the Mood online store.
