Breaking Ground with True Bias Lander Pants

Some patterns just stand out as instant must haves. The Lander Pants were that for me and by all the Landers I see on Instagram, for many others too.

After making my Coffee House Pants from Blue Dot Patterns, I was all-in on the idea that I could pull off a wide leg pant, so why the heck not try the Landers. Plus that button fly and slightly higher waist looks so stylish.

I don’t have a lot of experience sewing pants and those that I have made have been pretty time intensive due to details like topstitching, welt pockets, or my pattern hacking. Sewing the Landers really helped put into perspective that sewing pants could be a pretty quick project.

I’m Breaking Ground on these also by sewing my first button fly. Seriously, it’s not difficult, but I’m always apprehensive about screwing up button holes.

The Pattern: Lander Pants & Shorts from True Bias. I made a straight size 10 shortened by 2in and did not need to do my typical full seat adjustment. I did sew a muslin, but you might not need to do one. The pattern includes a 1in seam allowance on the outseam to allow for fitting. You be the judge.

I found the drafting and pattern instructions are on par with the better indie designers. My only criticism is the order of construction has you sew the legs together front and back before working on the fly. That’s a lot of bulk to be maneuvering while working on the fly.

The Fabric: It’s a mystery! Pulled deep from my stash, inherited years ago, origins unknown. Some sort of natural fiber slub woven. It was perfect in my mind for the Landers.

  1. The Landers look so great on you! I still have yet to make my own (the pattern is cut and ready to be paired with fabric) but I am so happy to hear you didn’t have to do a full seat adjustment! I’ll probably still do a muslin as I have a ton of old bed sheets just laying around, but hopefully I won’t have to do one, either.

    Long live the full booty!
