Capris/Pants with Ruffle by Whimsy Couture

Standard

Girls Ruffle Pants Set

Girls Ruffle Pants

Hello All,

I am excited to review the Capris/Pants with Ruffle Pattern by Whimsy Couture Sewing Patterns. This tutorial is very thorough and detailed with steps by step photos however I do not feel this pattern would be easy enough for a beginner sewer to follow.  The tutorial and pattern downloaded and printed easily. All the pattern pieces lined up perfectly and are clearly marked for each size.  The pattern contains a list of required materials, It also has a sizing chart that shows the inseam measurements as well as the amount of fabric needed for each piece. A large range of sizes are included in this pattern: NB – 10. You will be able to use this pattern for years. The ruffle on these pants can be cut in varying widths of about 1″ to max. about 6-7″ for wide ruffles for bigger sizes and can be layered. This pattern could also be used with or without the ruffles and could also be used for boys. This pattern has an elastic waist.

I was discussing with my daughter about making my grandson something cute for Fall or Halloween and decided I should make two outfits and put one on my Etsy site and then I decided to make this third matching girls outfit.  I made these size 5T ruffle  pants to sell on my Etsy site Grandma’s Sewing Studio and embroidered a shirt to match. I love the way these pants look. Overall this pattern is easy and doesn’t take long at all to make.

Hello All,

My name is Rachel. I work full time as a Capital Asset Clerk and I have been sewing for many years. I enjoy sewing, machine embroidery and crafting and try to do these as much as possible.

Cuffed Boys Pants by Whimsy Couture Sewing Patterns

I am excited to review the Cuffed Boys Pants pattern by Whimsy Couture Sewing Patterns. This pattern is intended to be used with woven cotton, chambray, lightweight denims, corduroy and flannel.  This tutorial is very thorough and detailed with  step by step photos. This pattern is designed for all sewing levels and I feel would be very easy for a beginner sewer to follow.

Cuffed Boys Pants Pattern

 

The tutorial and pattern downloaded and printed easily. All the pattern pieces lined up perfectly and are clearly marked for each size.  The pattern contains a list of required materials, list of suitable fabrics and the seam allowance needed.  It also has a sizing chart that  shows  inseam measurements as well as the amount of fabric needed for each piece.  A large range of sizes are included in this pattern: NB – 10.  You will be able to use this pattern for years.  The cuff on these pants is not only for a visual aspect, it also provides extra leg length once the pants would normally get too short. The pockets on these pants are large and deep so your little boy could put all kinds of treasures in them. These pants have an elastic waist.

I made these pants for my grandson and embroidered him a shirt to match. He loves Thomas the train so I tried to choose the colors from the train.  I love the way these pants fit and look on him. The only thing I plan to do different is to make the crotch longer. My grandson is taller than most kids his age and these pants were a little tight in the crotch. I love the fact that this pattern is so easy to make and doesn’t take much time at all. I have ordered fabric to make two more pair. One pair for my grandson and another pair to put on my Etsy site. I also plan to embroidery a Fall design on shirts to match them.
