The Highball Pant is a high-waisted cigarette pant, with splits at the ankles and a flattering leg-lengthening cut.

I love that the instructions are straight to the point. I modified the pants slightly to remove the split and widen the legs. They’re now my go to pattern for comfy pull on wide leg pants (I have six pair to prove it).

I love my dress! As a fairly new sewer, I didn't have any issues following the pattern, it was very straightforward. I have broad shoulders, so I went a size up on the bodice and extended the sleeves and it turned out perfect! I couldn't be happier. I feel beautiful in this dress and I can't wait to wear it for summer! It is my favorite sewing project so far. Thank you!
