Greenstyle Creations released the Chelsea Pants this week. This pattern is sponsored by Sly Fox Fabrics. A floral ponte from Sly Fox Fabrics is shown in the picture below! They carry several types fabric (stable knits) that work wonderfully for the Chelsea Pants - ponte, scuba, stretch velvet, and stable french terry. The customer service at Sly Fox Fabrics is top notch. Plus, don't miss their fabric reveal Wednesdays on the Sly Fox Fabric Facebook Group. Katy reveals the new inventory of the week in person - so much fun so check it out! And every week there is a chance to win a bundle of the new fabric!
I don't even know where to start with the Chelseas! They are perfection. Comfort, plus style, all in one. They make you look, and feel beautiful. Plus, check out this article from Forbes.com. Flare pants are at the top of the list for trends in 2017!
The Chelsea Pants are made with no closure (pull-on), thanks to the recommended fabric of a sturdy knit or even super stretch denim! However, if you desire a closure, there is a button hack for the waistband included as a separate download.

The lines and silhouette of these pants are very flattering. The center front seam elongates your legs while the back dip in the waistband enhances your curves. And, of course, I have to mention the darling flare at the bottom! You will love them!

They also include a fun pocket style!

As usual, the Greenstyle Testers, blew us away with their talent and style. The Greenstyle Creations team likes to keep the testing process for new patterns open to new testers. We like to see new faces, new fresh ideas, and we love working with all skill levels. It is a really fun process and your input is always heard and appreciated! If you are interested in being a Greenstyle tester, check out the Greenstyle Creations Testing Guidelines in the 'Files" section, in the Greenstyle Facebook Group. And then make sure you check regularly in the Facebook group for Testing Calls!
Here are a few of the Chelsea Pants tester photos, highlighting different styling. For more photos, visit the Chelsea Pants Photo Album on the Greenstyle Creations Facebook page. Please don't forget to add your own photos to the album once you sew up some Chelseas for yourself!
