    Surprised by how much I love these pants! This is a silhouette that I’m not really used to, but so far, I’m really enjoying the aesthetic, not to mention how insanely comfortable they are! Loving Bob… The only change I made was to extend the pocket bags up into the waistband so that they lay flat and didn’t bunch up along the side-seams. Worked really well and will do the same for future pairs. Made this pair in medium/heavy linen. Would like to try a lighter weight fabric, just to see…I’ll wait for next summer.

    Ooooh just what I was looking for – slightly edgy pant style with just the right styling for, I think, any fabric – I have made them in stiff velvet cord and denim. They are THE comfiest ever. Win! Win!

    The pants for being cindy and stylish. I’ve sewn two in corduroy, one for my daughter and one for me, in less than a week. They are easy to make and the instructions are precise and clear. Bob Pants remind me the comfort of the “gauchos” pants (called “bombachas”). I recommend this pattern and will sew some more for next Summer.

    I am an intermediate sewer. LOOOOVE these pants. Easy to sew up. I used a linen blend. I did add an inch to back seam because I always do. I put the elastic all around my waist but I sewed it so that it was flat about 12 inches across the front and the gather was mostly behind me. Loose fit. So comfortable

    Fantastic pants. Easy to sew & fit well.
    I’ve made a couple of pairs so far – linen and baby cord.
    I’m well blessed at the rear, so I made a slight crotch adjustment, but other than that, no issues at all.
    I will confess that I didn’t look at the instructions, so I can’t say if they are any good or not.
    A very versatile pattern that will suit a lot of fabrics.

    To say that I adore these pants is an understatement. I have made them in a crisp quilting cotton, and they’re delightfully poofy (one of the few patterns that lends itself well to that fabric). I’ve also made them in tencel twill, and they’re incredibly elegant, still very round but draping so well. You don’t trip over them because the ankles are rather narrow. Pay attention to the front piece’s grain, slightly off to maintain the poofiness. My only problem was with my first rev, because the waist was barely enough to go over my butt, I found it more comfortable to go up a size so that I don’t have to wiggle quite so much. Also I just extended the pocket piece up so weight would be borne by the waitsband instead of dangling like an unsupported side seam pocket. By far my favorite pattern of the year…

    Easy to sew and comfy to wear. If you’re a beginner, you might struggle a bit as directions are minimal. If you’ve made pants before, no problem. I think I will eliminate the separate waistband for the next pair, though, and just add enough fabric to fold over the top. At 5’8”, I did need to lengthen the crotch by an inch.

    I have been sewing for about 6 months and have made a dozen garments and a couple of quilts so I’d call myself maybe advanced beginner or intermediate. I love the style of these pants. I have just made a toile and as other reviewers have said the instructions are minimal. Unfortunately, that actually made these pants thoroughly unenjoyable to sew. I tried to follow the instructions which I usually do the first time so I can learn the design and then make adjustments. The instructions were sparse but also the techniques weren’t clever (which is why no one seems to use them). Now that I’ve read several more reviews online it seems like everyone who loves these pants doesn’t follow the directions at all. So I will use a different method for constructing the next pair, but having to figure out my own instructions makes me feel like I’m not getting good value for money. I had several other StyleArc patterns on my wishlist but I will think very hard before I buy another one, or wait a few years until garment construction is intuitive and I no longer need to follow instructions. Cool looking pants, frustrating experience.

    These pants are so comfortable, and so easy to make!
    I’m 5’3″ and carrying a bit squat so was concerned this style would not suit my figure, but they are great. I used a tencel fabric and did have to shorten them slightly, but other than that they are a great fit. I think this style suits a shorter top than I would wear with straight pants. Am now thinking about another pair in licensor that we’re coming into warmer months.

    Pants are comfortable and flattering. This is my first StyleArc pattern and I am hesitant to buy any others because of the extremely scanty instructions. This is a fairly simple pattern to put together but I am also interested in the Kew Pant that looks much less simple, yet has similarly poor instructions (based upon reviews I’ve found online.)

    If StyleArc spent as much time creating good instructions as the other Indie pattern companies out there do, this review would be five stars. As it is, I am giving three stars but am not sure I shouldn’t be giving two stars instead. Perhaps I’d feel more content if 2.5 stars were an option.

    I’m 170cm tall and they were a little short first attempt. I added 3cm and they were perfect! The instructions aren’t comprehensive so if you are a new to sewing pants take note you might have to look a few things up.

    Very easy and quick to make. I changed the pocket shape so the top of the pocket was caught in the waistband seam. I made my pants in a medium weight linen and they are very much as the illustration on the packet. I will be cutting out some of these pants in the very near future.

    Great design, very easy to adjust, and I loved the pants I ended up with. My one criticism is that the preview photos on this page don’t show the pants in their entirety. The upper half is completely hidden by the oversized shirt. It boggles me how the photographer thought these shots were okay. You can’t always trust the illustration so I had to look up other sewists’ photos of it on instagram to get a feel of what it could look like.

    This pattern is a joy as everyone has said. The pattern is easy to assemble. I liked the reminder to include the tailor tacks at the pockets because they do keep the pockets in place and prevent tearing. The pants are very quick to sew and the result is edgy and comfortable. I used the multi size pattern because I like to have the option of finishes on inside seams and some finishes need a bit more material in the seam allowance (ie French seams). I have made the pattern in two material: a midweight linen and a light linen look polyester. Both pants came out beautifully and hang well. This pattern will be another ‘go to’ when I need good looking pants in a hurry.

    The Bob Woven Pant was my sewing project for July 4th. Been sewing for 40 years and I generally avoid making pants – sticking to tops, quilts, bags, etc. These turned out fantastic! Fortunately the pattern required no adjustments for me, which was the icing on the cake. This was easy to make up. I grabbed something from my stash to give it a try. Now I’m ready to head to the fabric store and make that 2nd pair out of a fabric I really love!

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
