HP 1253 DL Fast & Fabulous Marrakesh X-Press
We all need an easy-peasy pull-on pant, so
make yourself a bunch of these, in light to
medium-weight fluid and drape-y fabrics like
crepe, soft linen, crinkle or double gauze,
georgette, or rayon challis. You can also use
a drape-y knit like interlock or a silk(y) jersey.
Straight-cut full length pull-on pants have a
grown-on elasticated waistband with optional
faux drawstring trim and side seam pockets.
Pants have a full leg and a deep stitched hem.
You know you’ll make these pants again and
again...try them in linen to keep you cool in
warm weather, in slippery satin as a luxe
evening pant, in a print or striped crepe as
part of fab vacation look, or in a soft jersey
as a superior sleep or lounging pant.
Sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 need 2 3/8 yards / 210 cm fabric.
Sizes 18-20-22-24-26 need 2 5/8 yards / 238 cm fabric.
Add enough 1” or 2.5cm wide elastic to comfortably circle your waist.
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
The sizing is VERY roomy; make sure you make a muslin first to get an idea of the ease this pattern uses. Or just use an inexpensive fabric, and tinker with the side seams and you'll probably have something useful to wear. I used my regular adjustments (adding 1" in length to hip and 1" in length to leg length). I added weights to the side and inseams of my finished garment because the fabric I used was "pouffy" (a rayon crepe that caught air like a parachute and billowed about my hips). No need to ever use another pattern for this style. Love the "L" back crotch shape, genius for use ladies whose butts have flattened and dropped thru the years. This alone makes this pattern PRECIOUS.
Finally have a pattern to make me-made pants and shorts that fit. Best pattern EVER!
