Look What You Made Me Do!

Miss Bossy Patterns Made Me Make the Amazing Fit Pants!

It was about a month ago that I chose 4 patterns from my stash for Miss Bossy Patterns to pick from. I picked pants because I needed some pants. From these 4 Miss Bossy Patterns picked Simplicity 1696-Amazing Fit pants.

Amazing Fit Simplicity 1696

I used a navy linen from my stash. I love linen when it is warm or hot. Since I live near Sacramento, California where it is HOT during summer; I love the light and airy feel of linen. As a pant, I can wear them when shorts or a skirt aren’t appropriate. Of course, my husband isn’t so sure about the wrinkles.

The Amazing Fit pattern lived up to its name. It was easy for me to get a fit that I was happy with and without a lot of frustration. I would recommend this to all who want a slim pant that fits.

A few little warnings, I would recommend changing the order of sewing the front crotch and the front pockets. I also increased the amount of the overlap on the front fly. I actually ripped out the fly the way they had me do it twice before doing it my way.

I decided to have a little fun on the inside. I made my pockets in red. Hey, no one knows but me! Oh, I also edged the the waistband facing with the same red. Oh, and one more thing. I used those fancy built in stitches that never get used to understitch the waistband facing…with red thread!

Understitching With Fun Stitches

With the fun inside (oh the puns that I could make!), and the Amazing Fit, I love my newest pants. I think I’ll be able to handle our early spring wearing these while I frantically sew up a summer wardrobe to go with my new linen slim pants.

  2. Wow, what an awesome idea to use decorative stitching on the inside! I love it!! 🙂

    These look great on you – nice job.


    • Thanks. I was actually running low on the navy thread and saw the red sitting there. So, I decided to use the red and had another thought to play with the understitching. Really impulsive. Definitely not planned.


  3. Wow, they look great! What a lovely job you’ve done on these. Feeling the need for some new trousers after this 😉
