sew it all series - floral ponte pants

There hasn't been much sewing going on around my house lately, so I've been lacking a bit in blog content for the last couple of weeks.  I finally did get around to making something, and I thought I would go ahead and share it here, even though it's not exactly the most exciting project :)  Once again, I used pattern #9 from this Japanese sewing book, which I've already used here and here.  What can I say, once I have a pattern I like already traced and cut out, I'm unlikely to look for a new one!  I  used the size 110 with the 100 length since I was going for knit pants that were not as fitted as your average legging.  If I make this pattern in a size 100, which is Mae's usual size in Japanese patterns, it fits like a traditional tight legging, so the 110 is perfect for a more relaxed fit!


I just love this Ponte Roma floral from fabric.com, which is unfortunately no longer available :(  The colors are beautiful, and the weight is perfect for a heavier, winter legging.  I just hope it holds up over time - the knits from fabric.com can be so hit or miss!

  1. Such a cute print! Another comfy practical piece for Mae. I haven't sewn much either lately and what's worse is that someone just doesn't want to model what I have made. Guess I could sew some things for the house instead, and some gifts.

    1. There's not much modeling going on at our house either, but that doesn't stop me from sewing stuff for Mae :) After all, she's willing to wear it, just not so enthusiastic about me taking any pictures!

  2. Lovely fabric! Does she wear it under a dress or with a sweater?

    1. She actually has a knit tunic that goes with it. I should hopefully get that up on the blog this week too :)
