Of the patterns that I mentioned in my April/May plans, I was able to close out the month with McCall’s M7726 pants pattern in View B.

When I originally decided to sew this pattern, I planned to sew view C. This is the capri length version of the pattern; however, after seeing other makes of this pattern, I decided to go with the longer, view B option.

Fortunately, I purchased extra material in anticipation of having to make a full butt adjustment. But, after reading Brittany J Jones’ review, where she mentioned not making adjustments, I decided to just use the extra fabric for the additional length.

The fabric used is light wash stretch denim from Joann. The pants are being worn with an old (and needs to be replaced ?) skinny belt, tee from from H&M, and my fave Jessica Simpson pumps.

McCall M7726 Pattern Review

Pattern Description:  Pleated shorts & pants with sash. I chose View B  

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 16 with no adjustments  

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! However, I did cuff my pants as oppose to finishing them as instructed. I also did not use a sash, but a skinny belt.  

Were the instructions easy to follow? I thought that the instructions weren’t very clear. I re-read several times to make sense of what was being said. Eventually, I ended up just following the pictures, for the most part. The wording could be better.  

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing outside of clarifying the instructions a bit more  

Fabric Used: Stretch denim fabric from Joann  

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None outside of cuffing the pant legs  

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes! Advanced beginners and intermediate sewists would enjoy this pattern. It does require a fly-front zipper installation and topstitching.

Conclusion

Overall, this was a quick make that only took a few hours. It’s definitely something that I’d sew again and would recommend to anyone looking for some quick, comfortable pants to make.
