Sew: Tessuti Anita Ponti Pants

I made the other pair of Anita Ponti Pants and I'm definitely going to have to get some really good quality ponti with a fabulous print now. These pants are super comfortable!! I wore the black pair to hospital on Friday when Mr H had his tonsils and adenoids removed. They were perfect for the hours spent sitting or lying with a 17kg child on top of you. The mothers out there will understand!

This ponti is from Rathdowne Fabrics. It doesn't have a lot of stretch and is quite thick. I bought some black bamboo knit to make a Tessuti Fave top to go with these pants. I think they'll be a match made in heaven.

See! Much better with ballet flats!

Project Details
Pattern: Tessuti Anita Ponti Pants, size 14
Fabric: Printed & textured ponti from Rathdowne Fabrics & Remnants
Alterations: Lengthened by 7.5cm

Next time I will add 2cm to the back rise as it dips down just a little at the back.

  1. Gosh I totally understand the need for comfort while sitting around a kids hospital. In fact I'll be doing it tomorrow. I just wish I had a pair of these pants to wear.

  2. Wow! Great pants - congratulations! The whole outfit looks really great!

  3. It looks very nice. My daughter had the same done 2 weeks ago and yes comfort was definitely a must. Hope he recovers nicely from it :-)

  4. Those pants look amazing.
