Just wonderful

I have searched in vain for decades for a pattern that would allow me to make a simple, elegant and well-fitting pair of trousers. The search is over! I am delighted with my Calder pants and will be making many pairs in many fabrics. The fit is generous so I did have to size down a little (I'd recommend making a muslin) but that was a pleasant surprise. Adjusting the rise was made super easy by the pattern markings and the instructions were great at taking me step by step through the process. I am genuinely thrilled with the trousers I've made and feel empowered to make many more. This is my first Cashmerette make and I can't believe what a difference it makes to have a pattern designed for a body like mine. I used the Apple pelvis shape and it fits and flatters perfectly. It is wonderful to have a designer who works to make patterns for curvy bodies, as opposed to being an afterthought at the top of a range designed for smaller bodies, it really does make all the difference. Thank you Cashmerette!

best pants i have ever sewn

I am a size 20, shortwaisted, appleshaped with slayback. It was always hard for me, to fit in pants if rtw or self made. But now I found my pants. They fit beautiful. I adjusted a little bit but even without adjustments the are wearable. I made two pairs of the shorter ones and have now hacked the pattern for long pants with an egg shaped bottom. They are beautiful. Thank you cashmerette.

Great pair of pants!

I saw this pattern and fell in love and knew I had to sew them for myself. My first muslin turned out to be bigger than I liked in the leg so I scaled down the size and tried again. Perfection! My sister was drooling with envy when she saw them, teehee! I promised to whip her up a pair. You can dress them up or down, ladies choice. I made the full length style but when summer comes back around I’ll try the 3/4 length in linen I’ve been saving in my stash. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I would definitely recommend this pattern!

Best shorts

To-date I’ve made the shorts twice, and a third pair being planned. They are so comfortable, a great cut and fit (apple) and a relatively easy make. I cant recommend this pattern enough!
