Pattern Review: Butterick 6071 Misses’ Pants

Threads magazine - 177 - Feb./Mar. 2015

Sewing Tip: Consider sewing a "safety" seam in the back crotch area for reinforcement.

This review was originally featured in Threads #177 (February/March 2015). If this pattern is no longer readily available via the pattern company, try searching online for the pattern name and number, or try Etsy.com or eBay.com.

Butterick 6071

These straight-legged pants by Connie Crawford are great for casual or professional settings. They feature a buttoned waistband, a mock fly zipper, front slant pockets, back darts that begin above and end below the back welt pockets, and hemline slits on the ankle-length view. The instructions are easy to understand and offer clear directions and illustrations on how to fit the pattern. Once fitted, the construction time is minimal. All notches and markings align perfectly, making this pattern a breeze to sew. Appropriate for denim, linen, twill, genuine or faux leather, cotton velour, and lightweight home décor fabrics.

(Sized Misses’/Women’s XS-6X [3-44W] for hips 35-76 in.)

Sewing Tip: Consider sewing a “safety” seam in the back crotch area for reinforcement.
