Pattern Review: Vogue 8836 Misses’ Pants

Threads magazine - 167 - June/July 2013 Issue

Sewing tip: If you make the belt loops, use a cardboard piece to level the presser foot as you topstitch them.

This review was originally featured in Threads #167 (June/July 2013).

Vogue 8836

This classic design has wide legs, slant pockets, front pleats, and a mock-fly front zipper. It also has back darts and back pockets with button flaps. Optional details are belt loops and cuffs. Due to the leg volume (the finished leg circumference for size 10 is 24 inches), our tester visualizes this look on taller women. To balance the full legs, wear this style with a fitted top and substantial shoe. The sewing can be done in an afternoon. The instructions are accurate and easy to follow, and the pattern pieces fit together well. Try fabrics with a soft drape, such as flannel or jersey, for this design. For year-round wear, use wool crepe, and for evening, a dressy knit. The sample pants are silk broadcloth.

(Sized Misses’ 8-24 for hips 33.5-48 in.)

Sewing Tip: If you make the belt loops, use a cardboard piece to level the presser foot as you topstitch them.
