pants that fit

user-77130 | Posted in Patterns on

I’m looking for a basic pants pattern along the style of LLBean or Lands End. Just your basic twill casual pants. I can’t seem to find one in the pattern books available at my fabric store. Is there some place that you can suggest?

    Take a look at http://www.kwik-sew.com. They tend to have styles that closely follow those in ready-to-wear.

      Thank you I'll check out the site. Hopefully I'll find other things of interest too.

        This is a dumb question, but what is CHLOR-STOP? Where can you buy it? Is there a brand name? Is there a substitute? I have used chlorine bleach to "discharge" dye from various fabrics, sometimes successfully and other times not. I used vinegar. Is there a product to stop the negative ph action of the bleach?tess

    I looked at the site that Carol sent to you and I think you might find more info about Kwik Sew here



    Also I think many women find the Burda pants patterns to be the best fitting ones.

      Good heavens! Thanks for catching that URL goof. The other site doesn't have much of interest for this discussion.

      I personally like the fit of Burda pants, but I know that the Kwik Sew designers are more concerned with creating styles that parallel what you can find in American ready-to-wear. It's always worth looking at several lines, though, since you never know what you'll find.

      Thank you for the site to Kwik sew. I did search the site and found a few patterns that might work. It's nice to know that there are places that still do "normal" clothing pattersn.
