I recently participated in testing the re-release of the Sabrina Slims (affiliate link). It’s being re-released to include a whole lot more stuff.
Sabrina slims are pull-on pants with slim tapered legs. This pattern can be made from stable knits or stretch wovens. The waistband is around 2″ wide and with an inserted 2″ elastic all around.
- Sizes 0-32
- New pocket options
- Hem options like the split hem, and side zipper
- Fitting workbook included helping with fitting the Sabrina
- Projector file
The view I made:
View A with front pockets and back patch pockets.
Size 8 all around
(My measurements are 30.5″ Waist, 39″ Hip, 22″ thigh, 5’4″ height)
Adjustments I made:
- +.5″ to back crotch length (rise)
- Removed 1″ wedge from the back leg to remove excess. (Decreasing the outseam)
I really enjoyed making this. This pattern is so easy to construct and you can make this extremely quickly once you have figured out your fit. I have plans to make some out of stretch denim. One thing I would add is that next time I want to add interfacing to the pocket opening. My concerns were that possibly over time (especially with stretch wovens) that the pocket with stretch out over time. But I’m not sure and will have to see how well my pockets on this make hold up. I made the pockets out of the same fabric of the pants. This pattern had control panel pockets which I love.
I really like that this pattern comes with a fitting workbook. It would be helpful for those who are beginners with fitting pants. Easy, quick, and very similar cut to jeans so it would be a great stepping stool to advance to jeans.
