James Knit Pant
James Knit Pant
The James Knit Pant: for when you don't wanna look like you rolled out of bed and kept rolling. This comfy pant is perfect for days when you gotta get outta the house (and look presentable!). Be prepared for anything, and look good doin' it.
This pant pattern is designed especially for pant weight Ponte. What is ponte? A cousin to the heavier legging fabric, ponte is a double knit fabric. Also know as Ponte de Roma, this heavy knit provides structure, moderate stretch and drape but still maintains the stretch and comfort of knitted fabric with the added advantage of strength and durability. In other words, you'll look slick and polished but secretly you'll feel like you're wearing the most comfy stretchy legging ever!
This medium rise pant with a wide contour waistband that falls just below your natural waist hugs all the right curves and hides all that needs to be hidden. A center front invisible zipper closure eliminates excessive waistband bulk. The neatly pressed creases through the front will give the illusion of a slimmer leg. With the James Knit pant you'll have the look of a pant and the comfort of a legging.
Sewing instructions come with additional instructions to alter pattern into a modern bootcut knit pant.
