I never thought in a million years I would be able to make a pair of woven pants WITH a button fly! The tutorial for this pattern is so well written and easy to follow! I am soooo happy with my new pants! They turned out amazing!!

Although I would say this pattern is more intermediate than advanced beginner the instructions are good and easy to follow. Pants fit well and I love that both the pants and skirt option are included in the same pattern!

This pattern is cut out and ready for summer shorts. Pants are so scary but after success with the Allegros, I think I have the confidence to tackle the Glissandos. Love Notions patterns are always current and on trend and this one is no exception!

I’m still working on the fit but I love this pattern–so stylish and the instructions are very clear, the finished product is so professional when I use LN patterns and this is no different! Can’t wait to be through the muslin-ing process so I can get out the good fabric for these pants!!!

These are great pants. I typically have to do a lot of blending between sizes on my lower half being quite pear shaped. Decided to give these a try because love notions patterns typically fit me fairly well. I still had to blend between 2 sizes and make some minor adjustments, but it was a pretty good fit on the first try. Instructions are great. I did swap out the button closure for a zip so I didn’t follow the directions there. Love the high waist. I’m already planning to make more in all the fabrics!

I followed Whitney’s tutorial for these pants & was amazed at the fit of the woven fabric pants for me. Love this pattern!

I’ve just finished my muslin of these pants and I do like the style, but I think there is a drafting error in the fly pieces/crotch curve: the directions the directions and fly pieces indicate that the entire area of the fly should be straight, until you clip into the seam allowance just below the fly, where the front leg pieces start the crotch curve, but (at least in sizes 20-22) the crotch curve starts well above where the fly piece ends, meaning these two pieces cannot align. I’ll need to figure out a fix for this before I move on to my expensive fabric.

We just examined the issue you outlined here. We are having trouble replicating it on our end. The curve looks correct on all sizes. Could you possibly email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with a screenshot/picture of your issue? We’d love to amend this if something is amiss but right now we aren’t able to view what you are viewing. (And we want you to be able to get that Glissando muslin made up ASAP 🙂 )

This is a great pant pattern for curvy shapes. If you’re straight and not curvy a muslin is a must. I had to remove quite a bit from the hip on front and back pieces. It worked great. The waist also sits very high on the hip so if you don’t have much room between your rib cage and hip you will need to adjust for the too. I need to draft wider fly pieces for future makes because those pieces were narrow for buttonholes (I was using a standard 5/8”). For me making the fly shorter helped align the crotch pieces better too. It was a great way to learn adjustments I’ll have to make for almost any bottom pattern.
