I’ve had this linen sitting in my stash with the intention of making some summery Glebe Pants since last year (I know it’s only February, but still)! I finally made View B of the Glebe Pants and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
I’m wearing my summery pink pants with one of my long-sleeve Tarlee T-Shirts that I made during the pattern production process. It’s a size larger than I ended up making, and so is a slightly more relaxed fit than my final version.
Fabric Consumption: The Glebe Pants are a quick 1/2 day project for me, now that I have the steps memorized. In this early version of the pattern, Leila included notches which indicate the seam-allownace, which means that you generally don’t need to check the instructions as the fabric tells you what to do! I used 2metres of 150cm wide linen for these pants!
Size details: I’m a 43″ waist and 54″ true hip but I’m around 57″ at my largest point around my belly. I made a straight Size F.
This Willandra Pants and Waikerie Shirt combos is one of my favourite (and most worn) outfit combinations. Muna and Broad is celebrating a Willandra Pants this week as it seemed like a perfect time to revisit this pattern, which we unfortunately released right in the middle of lockdown- just at the time where nobody was thinking about sewing slightly elevated pants which are a little bit elevated and perfect for workwear.
Having tested out the pleated front, flat waistband (View B) Glebe Pants in some black pinstripe wool suiting, I knew that I wanted at least a couple more pairs for the colder months. I love the fit on these, and I’ve got the construction down to a fine art. Because Leila included notches in the pattern to indicate the seam allowances, I can skip checking back on the instructions which certainly helps things go much quicker. I also skipped lining these pants, and I’m hoping I won’t need to go back to line the pants because of itchiness.
