Getting Started

Welcome to the Iggy sewalong! In this first lesson, Erica will introduce you to our sewalongs and give you some helpful tips. And in the next lesson, she’ll show you how to pick a size and prep your pattern and fabric.

If you’re feeling confident about getting started, you can go ahead and skip to lesson 3 and you’ll learn some helpful fitting techniques for the pattern.

Here is everything you need to know about the Iggy pants before you start sewing!

Iggy is a pair of high-waisted pants that sit right below your natural waist and feature a barrel-leg cut. These pants have deep pockets set into the side panels, and darts at the hem create the signature barrel look. The front closes with a fly and two buttons, and the back has an elastic waist so you can move comfortably and easily.

Fabric recommendations: Look for medium-weight or heavyweight fabrics such as twill, denim, suiting, linen, linen blends, or canvas.

A medium-weight fabric, such as linen or suiting, will give a looser fit. Heavyweight fabrics such as denim and canvas will exaggerate the barrel-leg fit.
