Pippa Pants

I am back finally!! It may seem like I have been missing in action, but actually I have been sewing again. Prepare yourself for several posts over the next few days. I am sharing this one first because the Pippa Pants are currently on sale, but for only a few more days. Rebecca Page has several other deals going on as well!

Feeling Sharp!

Initially, I was just going to make shorts as a test with this fabric because I was scared the pants wouldn’t fit. I was worried I would need a bunch of adjusting to make the pattern work with my round belly, but I jumped into the deep end because I had exactly enough fabric for a pattern. So glad I made full length pants! I should clarify full length for me, about 6 inches shorter than the pants pattern.  I am only 5’1. I also choose the regular width legs. You can follow the pattern to make the following options.

  • Full length or ¾ length pants
  • A flat waistband, or a folded over waistband with ties and ruching at the side
  • Regular or wide width legs


Since I had the great boarder print I also used it to make my waistband. I chose the yoga style band because it is quick and easy and that is totally my style. The waist band rises high enough that they stay up while wearing. That is important to me as I hate when pants slip down while walking.

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
