Pattern Review - Domi Pants
Name of the pattern: Domi Sweatpants
Pattern Source: Sofilantes
Sizes available: 12M – 14Y
Special materials required: Knit about 1yd, drawstring
Skill level required: Experienced beginner (buttonholes for the drawstring)
How you came to choose the pattern: I received from designer for testing another of her patterns, and I got to choose which one I wanted. This looked like a great versatile pattern for boys or girls.
Did you deviate from the pattern? No
I used a black cotton lycra knit, and the black/white knit is one I designed and had custom printed.
I didn’t have any issues with this pattern. Make sure you interface the buttonhole area on the knit - that is important. You also need to watch the ribbing placement on the pocket. Mine were a little lopsided since my serger cut off one side more than the other. Try to be more careful than I was.
Overall pattern rating:
This is a great pattern and can be made for both boys and girls.
Side note: The tops for her outfit are the Cami by The Simple Life Pattern Company, and the crop top is a pattern hack of the Sofilantjes Nivalis pattern. I lowered the top half of the pattern and added a band that was 75% the width of the bottom hem to bring it in.
