I've Been Cropped!


I've started my fall sewing and I love the cropped pants. I love pants, period! They are comfortable and easy to get in and out of cars, something I do a lot. The cropped pants have the comfort of long pants but will keep you cool in the heat and humidity of South Texas. Now don't confuse cropped pants with gauchos. Gauchos have a wider leg than cropped pants.


I used McCalls 5185 view B.





I did alterations for a sway back and shortened the crotch depth and length.





The fabric is 98% Wool and 2% Lycra



I made a template of the fly for accurate topstitching.





This is a great cropped pant pattern to add to your fall sewing list!
