These loose fitting pants were exactly what I was looking for, for a stand alone pair of casual pants. By stand alone I mean, not attached to a jumpsuit. The pattern McCall’s 7757 describes the pants as a loose-fitting, pull-on pants with elasticized waist and pockets. Yep, that is correct, no zipper and no fancy facings. These are perfect for the hot weather we are experiencing this week and weeks to come.
These pants were a quick and easy sew. I had to be careful with fabric placement, as my fabric has some cute little birds on them and I didn’t want the birds to be placed awkwardly in the front or back crotch seams. I paired these pants with a tank top from Kohl’s that matched the largest of the two flowers and a navy blue cardigan from Nordstrom Rack. I have this thing about having my shoulders out in the office, it’s just me. Typically once I am out the office the cardigan comes off. You will also notice that I am wearing a sandal, instead of my tennis shoes, Yay!!! My foot is healing perfectly. I bought these sandals in the tan and black from Target, which are no longer available online.
I cut a size Medium and I love the fit. I did have to cut off 6″ from the original pattern pieces, that was the only alteration that I needed to make for this pattern.
