    Great fit for a first time trouser
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 01/02/2019
    I don't often wear trousers because I have never found a pair that fitted nicely and flattered my (slightly odd) shape. Enter the Hollywood trouser pattern, I made a muslin to check the fit and after a few seam adjustments, lengthening the leg to allow for heels etc I can honestly say I will sew these again and again. I've planned a pair in a lovely grey linen for summer at work as well as a lovely wool blend pair for winter, totally a winner.

    Great fitting patterns
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/21/2018
    This was first pair of pants with a fly and fitted waistband. My measurements match the size 0 but I needed a little more room in the upper hip so I made the darts and back seam smaller than the pattern required. I used a black tropical wool I bought on Etsy, of questionable quality, and the pants stretched when worn so I could have used the correct dart size and seam allowance. But, these were a wearable muslin so good for the first time. They are very verstile style and I will be making more pairs. Next time I may lengthen the rise but am not sure how to do that or if it is needed. One thing I think would really help the novice or intermediate sewist is more info on why the pattern may be adjusted and how to make the adjustments.

    Hollywood Trousers/Stretch Denim
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/16/2018
    I made a "muslin" out of denim with a slight amount of stretch in the fabric. I went down a size due to the stretch. The only adjustment I made was to make the back darts slightly bigger to accommodate my waist/sway back. This is a beautifully drafted pattern and I can't wait to make it again. The only issue I had was with making the buttonhole due to excess bulk in the waistband. I don't believe I trimmed it down enough. I gave up and used a hook instead (which works fine).
