Project Chronicles: Style Arc Wallis Pant

These pants were very easy to make....with only 2 pattern pieces, this should be on everyones list of stylish non-leggings pants.  I sewed these live as part of my Live Sewing series on my YouTube channel.

The side seam is moved forward creating a really nice curve along the hip.  This I think, gives the illusion of smaller hips. I did my best I modeling the side seam..  It was not easy to show the seam with the red fabric. Which, by the way, I bought this red Ponte Roma from http://bit.ly/STF-SMFabric back in 2019, when she got it in stock. Oh, how many projects I have for this red fabric.  Even though I know this years color is a version of blue, I have been missing some red in my wardrobe for way too long.  (Stay Tuned)
The picture below is how I install the elastic at the waist.  This isn't the way the instructions suggest, but I need my elastic waist to be "flat" under a top.

PATTERN DETAILS: 

  • Pull-on Ponte pant with front design line by Style ARC, I purchased the Single size 14. found here: http://bit.ly/2NRkzyt
  • I increased the crotch extension in the back
  • Took some of the curve out of the side seam by, taking away from the front panel and adding to the back panel at the hips.
  • Added to the back legs to allow for perturbing calves.
  • Raised the back crotch length at the center back for more coverage.

The video shows the complete sewing of these pants using only the sewing machine, no serger or coverstitch. 

 I first sewed these pants to go along with my Izzy Miaki top.

  1. Thanks for this review! I have a really nice cut of ponte and have been looking for something other than V1411 (not slim enough) and V9210(I like them but don't love them).

    I'll give these a shot. They look fantastic on you.

    1. Yes, you will so love these pants. There is another that I have enjoyed over the years as well. It's the Style ARC Cassie Stretch Woven... you have seen me wear them several times in photos. I haven't really reviewed them. I'll be making another pair very soon.
