Pattern Review - Domi Pants

Pin It
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


Well, it's knit, so my kid is all over that.  They are comfortable pants for her to wear, and the "jogger" style is pretty popular right now.  It went together very easy.  I added silver beads to the end of the cording to make it look fancy. I made a 12 long and 10 wide for my tall skinny kid.  They have some room to grow, so that is nice.

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.
