Modkid Sophie Pants sewing Pattern Review

I sewed the Indygo Junction Turnabout Jacket using Amy Butler August Sunrise-aqua as the pocket & button tab. I planned the jacket knowing I'd sew a pair of ModKid Sophie 3 Way Pants from the same fabric.

Sewing is a slow process, but more fun when you have a little helper.

Did you not notice the magnetic pincushion which I've duct taped together?

................ a country girl can fix anything with duct tape!

Pockets attached and side seams sewn

The ModKids Sophie 3 Way Pants pattern suggests using double needles when adding the top stitch details.

After digging through old sewing notions, I found one, but it is gauged for light weight fabrics.

I used it anyway........
The double row of top stitching turned out fine, but I'd suggest using the proper size twin needle.

Right sides together one pant leg inside the other........ plus a better view of the duct tape repair

Designer Patty Young uses elastic in the back of the Sophie pants leaving the front waist band smooth. There is no front fly........ the button is only for looks.

The side slit (view A) is a cute detail, but y
ou could eliminate the slits & sew the side seam closed ...... you'll still have flared legs.
  • Will I sew the Sophie pants again? YES
  • Was it true to size and easy fitting? YES. (see my fitting hint below)
  • If you are brand spanking new at sewing, you may want someone nearby when you make your very first pair of pants.
  • If you have sewn a little and understand how to make a casing for elastic, a pocket & general skills, you should have no trouble with this pattern.
  • sizes 2T - 7 included ( see size chart below & size tip below)

    • classic pants style
    • Suggested fabrics: quilting weight cottons, denim, corduroy, line and twill.

Size tip:
Take a well fitting pair of jeans and measure the outseam ( side length). Compare it to the above chart.

Zoey's height & outseam measurements are exactly one inch shorter than the size 5 on the chart. I knew I would be taking 1 inch off of the length.

  1. SUPER CUTE, GLENNA!!! I absolutely love it!

  2. That jacket is absolutely adorable! I have yet to sew my daughter any clothes. I have several dress patterns for her, but haven't bought the fabric... fabric is more expensive than I thought!
