I just finished making these ELLE PANTS by Style Arc. This is the first pair of skinny pants I’ve ever made, and I immediately placed this pattern on my list of favorites.
My husband said he really liked them and that they looked like ski pants all in the same sentence. I’ll forgive him since he doesn’t keep up with fashion trends.
He didn’t realize the Style Arc ELLE PANT “is the pant of the moment, slim line from ankle to waistline….. These pants sit so beautifully without any bulk, wear them with your high heels out for the night or with your sneakers for brunch…..a must have piece in your wardrobe!” see here.
…and everything Style Arc says about these pants is true. I absolutely love the way they fit, the way they feel, and the way they look. I know I will wear them during the day and in the evening, with flats and heels.
Many thanks to Robin from A Little Sewing for recommending this woven/knit/hybrid fabric from EmmaOneSock. When she said she ordered this fabric in every color after sewing the Style Arc LINDA PANTS, I knew it must be dreamy and it is. The fabric is not inexpensive, BUT when it arrived I realized it is the same fabric as a pair of Carlisle pants I bought over 12 years ago. The ELLE pattern required slightly less than 1 ½ yards of the fabric which sews beautifully.
Now I want order this fabric in every color but will use some restraint, especially since I don’t have any ski trips planned.
