I'm sewing fleece again!!! What was I thinking? I have to admit it was easy this time.
My fleece trick is pretty simple.
Step 1: Thread a sewing needle
Step 2: Hand sew two stitches
Step 3: Position your fabric on the sewing machine
Step 4: Start sewing while pulling the thread from your threaded needle.
Step 5: Cut of the thread and continue to sew.
My son loves basketball which makes
this fabric perfect. When he saw his new pair
of fleece pants he gave me a huge hug.
He knows how to make my day!!!
This pattern is originally from my January Sewing Plan. Simplicity 8179 is my surprise project from my February Sewing Plan.
Simplicity 8179 was an easy sew. If you're planning to make this pattern with the cuff do not use fleece. Fleece is too thick to achieve a Rtw look.
Lounge pants for the whole family in matching or coordinating fabrics with contrasting hems.
Children XS to Large
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, for the most part.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were super easy to follow. Simplicity 8179 is a great pattern for a beginner.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
They're nothing to dislike about the pattern.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I omitted the contrasting hem because my fabric of choose was too bulky.
This project took an hour for me to sew up. I am a beginner and I was able able to complete this project without a worry. I do not recommend any bulky fabrics. I was definitely make this pattern again with a thinner fabric. Next time I will include the contrasting hem. I will also remove about 2 inches from the crotch area.
