Closet Core Pietra Pants Pattern Review

The Pietra Pants pattern from Closet Core really stood out to me with its design for both form and function. I love the flat front with the elastic back waistband, which gives it a sleek look in front while remaining comfortable overall. Additionally, the slanted pockets give it…

2020 Year in Review: Sewing
