It's HAMMER time!! hahaha..one of my girlfriends HATES the new fad of the infamous Hammer pants that are back in style. I told her I was going to make some just to get on her nerves. I self drafted a plain tube top with two rows of elastic to wear with them.
Fabric used: Teal Rayon Challis...the fabric was easy to work with but I don't like how it gets really wrinkled fairly quick. I ironed the pants several times and even put some starch on them to try and combat the wrinkles but it just must be the fabric.
Complexity of pattern: Beginner to Intermediate..I had no issues with this pattern. Very easy construction. I like the back zipper. There are pleats in the front and the back.
How long did it take to complete: 3 1/2 hours including top.
Overall Review: I like this pattern! I think they look really good on me hahaha..they weren't as "hammerish" as some of the ones I have seen in magazines and on the Internet. I wore them to have lunch with a few friends and I received several compliments. I may make these again in the long version if I can find some fabric that drapes the same way but doesn't get so wrinkled.
