Even more notes on Kwik Sew #2861

The scrubs pants are done. Previous notes on the pattern and construction still apply.

The scrubs pants pieces are in two sections on the paper; they have to be assembled. Not really a big deal. It helps to have a relatively large cutting surface, though.

Instructions are rock-solid. Follow them carefully. There are some weird bits, like setting the inset pockets first and then cutting away the excess, but you'll understand why after you do it.

Setting the waist elastic (2" elastic, which it says on the outside and in the instructions, I don't know where I got the idea of 1/2") is a bit of a nuisance. I got ribbed "no-roll" elastic, but that's a bit too strong to set in easily. It does, though, make for a sturdy waistband. Regular elastic should stretch and set more easily.

So, yeah. Definitely happy with this pattern. It's designed for wovens, but it worked OK with the strange knits I was using. It goes together pretty easily, and there's a lot of detail and opportunity for modification and embellishment.
