Barry in cord


I love and have worn my linen StyleArc Barry Pants loads.  As linen pant weather left us in Melbourne, I decided a wintery version of this pattern was required.


So if you were ever wondering if fine cord was suitable for the Barry Pant pattern, I can categorically say yes!


Wondering what I love about Barry?

  • The pockets… I used Liberty tana lawn for the pocket bearers to reduce bulk


  • The leg shape


  • The elastic paper bag waist… perfect for front tucking!


  • The back view is pretty good too!


  • And finally, the fact that I’ve sewn this pattern before and adjusted it to fit my unique body.

Alterations:  I added a wedge to the front rise that was 1″ (2.5cm) at the centre front and 1/2″ (1.3cm) at the side seam… and trued as required.  I also added 1/2″ (1.3cm) to the back rise
