Fabulous Pattern

I thought I was being a little over ambitious making these trousers in a beautiful suiting fabric for an event with not a great deal of time. I tried a one legged toile without success and decided to go with the straight size based on my measurements. The instructions were so clear and simple to follow. I took my time, but regretfully didn’t use the bias tape feature on the pockets or back seam, as I had thought I might line them. I didn’t have time to figure out a lining, so the serged edges aren’t as neat as I would have liked, but they are ok as only I know! The fit is good and I have another pair planned, this time using all the tape to give me a lovely inside finish. This is the first Bella Loves pattern I have tried and I will definitely try others. Thank you!

Lovely pattern!

Such a beatuiful pair of trousers, and the level of care and detail in the instructions are just amazing. I have made two of these, and they both turned out much better than I had hoped, since the instructions hold your hand every step of the way.

Amazing pattern!

I don't think I've ever written a review for a pattern before, but I find it necessary for this pattern. The level of detail, both in the construction of the pattern as well as the writing of the instructions, is amazing. While the extra steps can be time consuming, they are well worth it to make the garment have a beautiful and clean finished look. I love that such details were included, as I haven't really seen that from other patterns
