Your Club Makes: 5 Absolutely Essential Ashwoods

Our style resolution this year is chic and elevated comfort, and we’re starting out strong with this month’s Cashmerette Club pattern, the Ashwood Pants. Here’s how five makers created their own versions to inspire your own personalized pair of Ashwoods! 

Designed for curves, comfort, and style, the Ashwoods are elegant ponte pants with princess seams and optional front slits, and everyone’s favorite feature, pockets. Ranging from black classic to yoga-style leggings, the Ashwood Pants are so versatile they can go from the office, to yoga class, to happy hour. Not only is this a super-speedy sew that will add a whole new element to your wardrobe, you’ll be ready to hit the town in your secret pajamas in no time.

The Ashwood Pants pattern comes in sizes 0-32 and is available exclusively to Cashmerette Club members. Not a member yet? Join today for as little as $9 USD—cancel anytime.

Let’s see what our makers created!

Kari’s Ashwood Pants

Kari’s classic take on the Ashwood Pants are the epitome of comfort with a pinch of polish. She chose a black rayon/nylon/spandex ponte. 

Kari made a size 20. Her measurements are 39” waist and 50” hip. 

Kari shared this about her Ashwood Pants: 

“This is my first time sewing a Cashmerette pattern and I had a fantastic experience! I followed the size chart when picking a size to print/cut. I was a little nervous they weren’t going to fit while I was working on them, but I was so impressed when I was able to try them on for the first time. I didn’t have to make any pattern adjustments at all and the fit is spot on. The instructions were simple to follow with clear illustrations.”

Shereé’s Ashwood Pants

Shereé’s Ashwoods are pristine and the black ponte fabric gives these pants a professional finish. A fast project with chic results— we’re loving this! 

She made her Ashwood Pants in a size 12 at the waist graded to a size 10 in the hips and legs. Her measurements are 33” waist, and 39” hips. 

Shereé had this to say about her Ashwood Pants:

“This was a very enjoyable sewing project. They sewed up pretty fast and I really love the way they came out. I plan to make a few more in different colors.”

Kirsty’s Ashwood Pants

Kirsty’s Ashwood Pants are both smart and spunky sporting the optional front slit at the hem. She chose a black viscose Ponte for the fabric giving these pants a classic and polished look. 

She made her Ashwoods in a size 18 at the waist graded to a size 22 at the hip and a 24 around the thighs. Her measurements are 39” waist, and 52” hips. 

Here’s what Kirsty shared about her Ashwood Pants:

“These sewed up like a dream and have been worn multiple times in the weeks since. The construction is straight forward, but the stop stitched seams make them look really polished. They are great with a baggy sweater for around home, but dress up well with a smarter top when heading out.”

Sarah’s Ashwood Pants

Sarah stands out with her perfectly posh and tailored Ashwood Pants! She chose a black rayon/spandex ponte material and is a #memade dream with her Cashmerette Stanton Hoodie and handknit sweater. 

She made her Ashwoods in a size 10 and graded to a size 12 at the hip. Her measurements are 31” waist, and 42” hips. 

Sarah had this to say about her Ashwood Pants:

“This pattern was very easy and quick to sew! I love the grid in the background of the PDF pattern; it made this pattern really easy to tape together and very quick to adjust for length (I didn’t even need to get out a ruler!) These pants are so comfortable and can easily be dressed up or down. I’ll be lounging on the weekend in these paired with a hoodie or t-shirt and wearing them to work with a sweater or nice blouse.

Christiana’s Ashwood Pants

We’re loving Christiana’s pop of red giving her Ashwood Pants a fun and powerful vibe. She could easily take these pants from the office to a night on the town or snuggling up at home. Her favorite feature? The pockets, of course! 

She made a size 22 and her measurements are 41” waist, and 49” hips. 

Here’s what Christiana had to say about her Ashwood Pants:

“It came together very quickly. The pocket construction is really fun.”
