Hi Friends! I am late to let you in on a little info. I was the guest blogger at Ellie and Mac last week. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you know how much I love pockets! I want pockets in every possible pattern! When the Not so Basic pants came out I adored them and everyone was super cute in them, but no side seam… no pocket.
Fear Not, Friends! I have a hack for you. Just give this photo a click and you will be transported to my post!
If you are going to make some amazing pants- Make them in snake skin print!
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.
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
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.
