Sewing Pattern Testing- Made for Mermaids- Hailey Ruffle Pants

Posted by Heather at Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Made for Mermaids by Megan Gorman is at it again with the new Hailey Ruffle Pants! Cute, girly, ruffly and comfy- what more could a girl ask for?! The Hailey Ruffle Pants features a bottom ruffle leg and a sweet little ruffle at the waist (peaks out from underneath the shirt). The best part, in my opinion? The yoga-like waistband of soft, knit fabric. 

Here is some information about the Hailey Ruffle Pants PDF Sewing Pattern by Made For Mermaids;

-Comes in sizes 1/2-14 (that's a HUGE range- so much bang for your buck because you can literally use this pattern from itty bitty all the way up to preteen!).
-This pattern can be made in either knit or woven material, with clear directions for using either type of fabric. Note, whatever material you choose, the waistband on both is knit- cotton lycra, to be exact. You need something super soft with GREAT recovery for the waistband to hold up and stay up.
-Pattern features a ruffle at the bottom of each leg and a small ruffle at the waist. Yoga waistband.

Directions were super easy to follow. The knit option is even easy enough for a knit newbie, like myself, to follow along. I made my test pants in woven, but I can't wait to try them out in knit! The pictures, dotted lines and arrows aid the the understanding in the overall tutorial.

Thank you, Megan, for another opportunity to test patterns for you! I enjoyed myself and I'm sure I'll be making the Hailey Ruffle Pants again and again.... (perfect addition to the fall back-to-school wardrobe!)
