Simplicity 9471 – Cropped Pants

Hello Sewers! I am back today with a review of Simplicity Pattern #9471. The pattern description is: Cropped pants with front zipper and elasticized back waistband, belt carriers and yokes and three pocket variations. Pant hems are wide or pegged with back hem darts.

I made View C which has the pegged hem and ALL the details. Every time I wear these pants, my husband comments about how much he likes them. He says they remind him of a pair that I had when I was in high school. That was in the very early 1980’s!

You can get a better idea of the shape, style, and details of this pattern from Simplicity’s Website

Personally, I like these pants with a bit shorter top. Not a crop top, but definitely shorter than a tunic or tee. The top I am wearing is the Cielo Top by Closet Core Patterns and the fabric I used is from Needle Sharp.

I used a 7 oz. denim fabric from Joann Fabrics. Since the fabric is 100% cotton, I prewashed it in warm water and dried it on high heat before I cut the pattern pieces. After I finished the pants, they seemed just a bit baggy in the waist and hips, but after a couple more washings, the fit is spot on.

The opening of the front pockets falls right about the crease of my leg. They are definitely lower than a standard pair of pants. The front pockets are nice and large, and they are actually at a convenient location.

There are two back pockets and a side leg pocket (kind of like a pair of painter’s pants).

There is a fly front closure. I used a jeans hardware kit for my zipper and button.

The back features an elastic waistband and there are belt carriers around the waistband.

I posted a video review of this pattern on my YouTube channel:

Thank you so much for spending time with me, my friends. Please let me know if you have sewn this pattern, or if you have a favorite crop pant pattern.

  1. They look like they fit you perfectly and they look comfy as well. I have never made pants with denim but think I may just have to give them a try. Thanks again for sharing!
