Sew-Along With Olga and Sansa!One of our favorite non-custom fabric groups is hosting a sew-along for the Sansa Flares! Olga's Fabric Destashing is planning a great deal of fun with fabric discounts and prizes! But we'll get to hear more about that here in a minute. First...
Let's talk about Sansa!Sansa is one of our favorite pant patterns for so many reasons. You get the look of a flared pant or bell-bottom with the comfort of a pair of leggings, so get those stretch knits ready! The flare is so stylish right now and you have the option of either doing a yoga-style waistband or using elastic and a casing. And the adult version comes with two rise options, mid-rise, or high-rise, to fit your style or fit needs.
Like many of Bella Sunshine's patterns, Sansa has a WIDE range of sizes, from a 6-month child's size all the way up to a size 30 in adults (which measures 53.5" and 59.75" respectively in the waist and hips). Or, go all out and grab the bundle to have the FULL range. Think of all the gorgeous and adorable matching parent/child sets you could make!
Let me just share some gorgeous Sansa inspiration!
Now, what about this sew-along?
Ready for a retro flashback? Look no further than the Sansa Flares! They are fitted from the waist through the knee and then flare out for a fun retro look of the ’70s. The length touches the floor. The design comes with two options; elastic waist or a yoga waist which gives you the ultimate choice in comfort! The ladies' version also includes two rise options: mid-rise and high-rise. These pants are sure to be a staple in your wardrobe!
