Have you seen Pattern Anthology's new fall collection? It's called the Alphabet Collection and has some pretty cool mix and match separates. I was lucky enough to test the W pants, designed by Melissa Mora of Blank Slates Patterns and Melly Sews.
I was asked to make the size 5 shorts option. Unfortunately, they ended up being too big on S, but we have a neighbor that was able to fit into them.
That's a working zipped fly there. My first. It takes a little bit of effort, but Melissa explains it pretty well.
And this is the reason these pants are called the W pants. The pattern has options for 1 or 2 zip pockets, or welt pockets in the back.
I love these shorts. I'm planning on making a pair of the pants for S pretty soon.
The Alphabet Collection is only available for the next couple of weeks at a discounted price and includes all four pieces. Besides the W pants, the collection includes a jacket, a raglan tee, and a vest.
And thanks to our sweet, goofy, neighbor girl for modeling.
