Knit Pants Fail- Simplicity 1429

I made Simplicity 1429, which is for knit skirts and pants. I am now waaaaayyyy to big for all of my pants to fit and I wanted some comfortable knit pants that I could wear to work as well. I bought some chocolate brown knit at Jo-Ann and got this pattern on sale. 

I usually wear an 8, so I thought that cutting out a 12 would be a good plan that matches up with my belly. Trolololololololol. Wow, so wrong. They turned out ridiculously, freakishly enormous. In fact, after taking these pictures I had Andrew try them on as a joke and they fit my 6'3" husband. Ha.

Please note: these are the least flattering pictures ever taken. Winter no-light, flash and the most unflattering pants in the world combine to make this look like a diet advertisement. 

Hmm, those pants look saggy. 
 Wow, taking these pills I lost 35 lbs!!!
 They do not fit on any point of my body, including the belly.
 I'm now thinking "pregnant belly dancer" is a Halloween costume I should have considered!
Hope you got a laugh, and I gave them to Andrew as house pants!


  1. Ha ha Molly.... they look terrible or terribly funny!

  2. I made pleated knit pants once too. I think that is something that will always be a wadder :(
    But look how cute you look as a pregnant lady!

  3. Your bump is so cute! The pants not so much!!


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
