Designer Pairs: Laela Jeyne Patterns and Designer Stitch Patterns



 




Hello all! Marisa from Laela Jeyne Patterns here! This week for the Designer Pairs event, I paired with Ann from Designer Stitch and sewed up her Alyse Slim Pants. Ann is an awesome designer with quite a bit of experience in designing for commercial reproduction and teaching design classes. She is a welcome addition to the Swhetty Betties group, especially because she loves to share her wealth of design knowledge!

 The Alyse Slim Pants came together beautifully! I had no problems with construction because Ann does such a professional job with drafting her patterns. I did have to mash a couple sizes to fit my body well, but Ann has included a detailed sizing chart to make this easy. I chose to sew my Alyse Slims in denim stretch and I'm so happy that I was able to make myself jeans for the first time! It really was easy and I hope to use this pattern again for more pants.

 The Alyse Slims have a thick waistband and close with a side zipper. I especially like this because it takes the eye off my mommy belly and helps smooth it out.

 The rise comes to just below my navel. The legs aren't tight like skinny jeans but are adequately fitted. One tip I have is to try on your pants before finishing the side seams to make sure they fit you the way you like. I found out that I needed to take in the leg some and I had to trim the hem a bit because I am 5'1".  I decided to topstitch my seams in gold thread to make them look more professional and I'm very pleased with the result. I made my Alyse slims to go slightly past my ankle but there are also long short and 7/8 lengths.

 I paired the Alyse Slims with my Emily T-shirt pattern and I really love this outfit! The Emily T-shirt a great design that comes with so many options to customize for your liking. See more information about the Emily T-shirt here!
