Candy Pants

Psst I am sharing pants again…Candy Pants!!! I told you, I am on a mission for the perfect fit. These pants are pretty much awesome sauce out of the gate! For both pairs I made, I used the yoga pants pattern which is a little wider in the leg than the leggings options. Oh wait! Did I say options?!?! How about we switch things up here and start with all the options. We know 5oo4 always loads up on the options!
Women's Candy Pants 5oo4 4x (1)
The Candy Yoga Pants and Leggings is a PDF sewing pattern that includes:
  • Women’s sizes XXS – 5XL
  • Yoga Pants or Leggings
  • Solid or Colorblocked versions for both yoga pants and leggings
  • Optional side pockets (to be used with the colorblocked version)
  • 7 Lengths: 2″, 5″ and 7″ shorts, pedal pusher, capri, ankle and long
  • 4 rises: High, Mid, Low and Extra Low/Maternity
  • Regular waistband options include exposed elastic, regular knit, foldover yoga band and contour
  • Maternity waistband options include full overbelly panel, contour, regular knit and foldover yoga band
  • Full, half or no gusset options
  • Check out this YouTube video of all of our testers’ versions!
For my fit test pants, I made the 4x waist with the legs graded down to the 3x. I found the legs a little snug for a yoga pant. I think in testing I told Rachelle that “they gets stuck on my legs.” LOL meaning the were a little clingy at my knee and calf. You can see in the side by side photos that the black with rust floral print is a bit weird at my knee and calf compared to the navy with colorful floral print. Ahh improving my pants fitting game. This is why we do a muslin, so we know what works, what needs improved, and how to best good our good fabric.
I chose to use the full gusset for both pair of pants. A gusset in pants is added for a little extra room in the crotch. Usually a full gusset is used in athletic pants so there is a little more room for doing squats and stuff. 🙂 I just don’t like tight fitting anything! This pattern can be made with a full, without the gusset or with a half gusset. The first time I botched a gusset was another 5oo4 pattern. The Rip Tide Shorts. They worked out fine, but after watching the video in the pattern, I did it right the first time!

These pants turned out super comfy and I will need to add a bunch of them to my closet as well as some shorts for wearing under all my dresses. By the way, did I tell you how quickly these came together. No outside leg seam makes them super speedy and one less annoyance for folks with sensory issues.

I *Think* the black with rust flower print is from Sew Blessed and the Navy with colorful ones is from Ksews. Both companies have loads of great deals, quick shipments and are lovely with customer service.

Lola Bottoms

If you are going to make some amazing pants- Make them in snake skin print!

5oo4 Lola 4X 8

These are the Lola Pants from 5oo4 patterns. A high rise, wide leg pant that is so popular this fall. The Lola will become your new favorite pant, but they can also be your favorite capris or shorts. I sewed up my fit muslin in a woven fabric to make sure the fit was spot on. These pants are drafted to be made for a very fluid woven fabric or a lightweight knit.

5oo4 Lola 4X 1

Here I am wearing a size 4 x. I did a fully belly adjustment. I honestly could have probably used a 3x with a belly adjustment because this knit is so stretchy. I would recommend doing a fit muslin with a similar fabric to what you plan to use for your finished piece. Pants can be tricky to fit so I suggest you do a muslin. This is a single brushed poly from Sly Fox. I love it, I wanted a dress made out of it, but since these are such great pants I am happy with them too! Here is the link to the fabric.

In typical 5oo4 fashion there are loads of options with these pants.

  • Pants, Capris or Shorts
  • Belt Loops and Waist Tie Belt
  • Pockets
  • Woven or knit construction

I didn’t create belt loops or tie belt because I knew I wanted to pair my Lola’s with an extra wide belt. I am sort of obsessed with this belt lately!

Showing it with and without a sweater! Looks great for a variety of seasons which is perfect for Ohio.

Do you love Lola too? Here is the link to the ladies pattern. It is on sale for $7.95 right now!

I suggest any of more fitted tops from 5oo4 to wear with your Lola’s. I am kinda dreaming of making a Jessie in red Liverpool to wear with mine! Here are a few other Jessie’s I have made.
