Amazing Fit: as advertised!

Simplicity has a relatively new line of  skirt and trouser patterns called “Amazing Fit”.   Each pattern comes with different pattern pieces for slim, average and curvy fit.  So far, I have tried 2 different trouser patterns and they fit very well out of the envelope with very few fitting tweaks needed.  I now feel pretty confident that the other Amazinf Fit patterns will fit as well.  These trousers are Simplicity 2860, the straight leg trouser.  This pattern has two major detractors that should be pointed out.  I tried making the fly as drafted several times but never figured it out.  I ended up adding a faux fly, based on a different pattern.  The other detractor is that there are no pockets.  However, now that I have the fit perfected, adding a slash pocket shouldn’t be too difficult to add.    I highly recommend Simplicity 2860 to anyone new to trouser making or has trouble getting trousers to fit.

    This is another winning combination. That blouse is TDF. (and the pants aren’t shabby at all.)
