Tessuti Margot Pants

I’m in love with these pants! and I owe mine to Angela at ‘Collected Yarns’. I recently came across a pic she posted on IG, and I immediately ordered the pattern. Subsequent research yielded no reviews of the pattern, so I knew I was in for some fun.

I think the ankle ties are great – a bit eccentric, a little funky 🙂

Fabric: Kaufman Essex linen in natural, Fabric.com. Top: Ogden cami in Kaufman Brussels Washer linen, also Fabric.com

Sewing notes:

  • I thought the sizing was tricky. A sizing chart is provided, but it doesn’t indicate if the measurements are one’s bod or the finished garment. In the end, after measuring several sizes on the pattern, I drafted the size Small.
  • My major adjustments were to the crotch and rise. I know I need a 27″ crotch (back 15.5″, front 11.5″), and I routinely flatten the back crotch to match my flat backside and avoid bunching in that area. BTW, the waistline is very scooped, high in the back and low in the front. My changes leveled it, and it sits at my natural waistline.
  • I’m 5’7 1/2″ tall and the length is perfect on me. The size Small has a 36″ outseam, so I recommend caution before cutting the ankle tie detail!
  • The pattern has no pockets! so I added single-layer pockets to the fronts. They’re sewn into the waist and side seams, and are super easy to do. (I’m not fond of in-seam pockets on pants…).

Pics!

I hope this finds you well and looking forward to a nice weekend.

    1. You’re correct! I didn’t describe it very well. The change prevents bunching up into the crotch seam and smooths the backside. Not really a flat bottom adjustment, for that I actually use a fisheye change across the entire back of the pant, not needed on these pants. Coco

  1. I agree. Adorable! A fresh look for late summer.
    Don’t tease but I ran right out and arranged 5 flat rocks on a wall that just needed SOMETHING! And that was just what it needed!
