oh, Elle….

I’ve been making StyleARC Elle pants again.  They really are my staple bottom garment throughout the cooler seasons.

I can get away with these in a size 10, due to the combination of stretch fabric, slim styled legs, and an elasticised waistband. Love my pull-on pants!  I shorten them in two places, about an inch and quarter above the knee and the same below the knee, to allow for my 158cm height.

They really do sit on that bridge between pants and leggings, I think. But they’re too thick and a bit too loose to be leggings – and they do have side seams! I love this pattern and am rapidly losing count of how often I have used it. Actually, I made another pair after this one.

The fabric is a lightweight double knit from Darn Cheap Fabrics. It’s fun to have a little print on my legs!
