Sewing Machine Going Again!!

Sorry everyone for being away so long!!  I've been working on a couple of projects between getting ready for the holidays!!!  I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and Santa was good to you all!!  I'm currently working on my first pair of Jalie Jeans that just about everyone has made except me!!!  I hope to have them completed for posting before the end of the week.

I just completed these slacks and love them!  It's Vogue 1051.

Although the pattern envelope says they are of "average" skill, I found them very time consuming...albeit, the end result is very nice!


Pattern Description: Slightly flared leg pants  
Pattern Sizing: 4 - 18
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?  I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?   Yes but very time consuming!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  I like the style of the pants, but you all know me, I like quick projects and this is not one of them!
Fabric Used: Sage colored wool blend.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  I narrowed the leg just below the thigh because I didn't want them to flare.  I also lowered the waist line because I'm very short-waisted.  Other than that, no changes were made.
Would you sew it again?   Would you recommend it to others?  Yes, I would definitely sew again when I have a lot of time.  I would definitely recommend to others.
Conclusion:  Very nice pants

 Happy Sewing!!
