I had been looking for a trouser pattern like this for quite some time, but for some reason put this one off for so long since it required a stretch fabric. But after making multiple failed attempts at other patterns, I finally came around since CCP always has such great fitting patterns with great instructions. The only mod I made was grading the waist to a smaller size, and making them longer. Super happy with how these turned out, and plan to make many more.
Very well drafted pattern with clear instructions. The fit was spot on! I only had to make a minor fitting adjustment which is a miracle for pants.
The Sasha trousers pattern is well drafted and the instructions are easy to follow. I've made two pairs and love both. I only had to make a minor adjustment to take out a bit of gaping in the back waist. Will definitely make more pairs.
First pair of trousers I’ve ever made! The instructions were so right on! Easy to follow and I learned a lot! The fit of the Sasha Trousers is very flattering and comfortable. They fit like a dream! I feel so professional. ! I have another pair cut out and can’t wait to sew them up so I can look fabulous in quarantine.
I have made the Ginger jeans, the Morgan jeans, two ebony shirts, one Kalle shirt, a remake of a purchased shirt using the Kalle pattern. I can’t wait to try the blazer and several other patterns from Closet Case. Keep doing what you are doing!!! Ruth
Having already fit the Ginger Jeans to my shape, I was able to make very successful adjustments to the crotch curve and rise of the Sasha Trousers, and it looks like I'm about to have very serviceable stretch "office pants" when I finish these up. I've made this first pair out of a stretch gabardine synthetic, which looks dressier than my usual stretch twill pants, but which normally accentuates all the lumps and bumps around my hips--at least when I try it in an RTW cut!
I look forward to making these in wilder stretch twill fabrics for summer, especially in the ankle length. I will likely cut deeper seam allowances in the future to help account for the fact that a pattern like this can fit very differently based on the fabric (not only the spandex percentage, but also mechanical aspects of the fabric). I also anticipate going full-out on pockets and welts in the future, and hope that I may finally defeat the beast of gaping slash pockets!
As always, Heather's instructions are thorough and easy to follow, and the pattern is super well drafted. Now all I have to do is remember to trace all the notches!
