Peaks and Valley Pants by Decades of Style

Sewing Level: Beginner

Fabric: Stretch Wovens (20% Stretch)

I made size and View (if applicable): Size 14/16

My mods: Size 16 above hip and size 14 below hip. Added 1" to back rise. After finishing, I tapered legs to 4" less in hem circumference. I used a healthy 2" hem allowance.

Description: Pull-on, body skimming fit with full leg and contrast hem detail.

Notes: I made shorts as a test pair and then the pants for my final (the pants photos are before hemming and tapering further). I love these. They are very comfortable and flattering. Since they're stretch wove they can fit sort of close without being tight and there are no waist closures so no bulk! Which make is flattering. They sit a bit low but nothing that feels uncomfortable. I wore the shorts all day and they felt great! The leg fullness is a bit much for me- I tapered them a lot and they still look cute and boxy!
