Lovely quick project

A review of Pomona Pants and Shorts

Reviewed by RubyRosesSews on 14th March, 2021

I was actually part of the pattern testing for this pattern. The Pomona Pants is a versatile pattern that comes with 3 different views, shorts, wide trousers and tapered trousers. I love Anna Allen’s patterns; they are just my aesthetic.

I decided on a standard US size 6, as generally my hips are a bit larger and my waist slimmer than average. Pick a size that fits your hips and the the waist can easily be adjusted with the elastic.

I chose to use this lovely vintage fabric that my mum found in the back of a cupboard. Because I was in a rush due to my booked holiday, I decided to skip making a toile and start straight on the final version.

This pattern is a simple one, as it has no side seams and a grown-on waistband it is just one main pattern piece and then a piece for the pocket. Therefore, it’s a pretty quick make, and I completed it in under 2 hours.

I loved making these shorts and I’ve actually made 2 other pairs since.
