These trousers are slim fitting, practical, and flattering, taking you from day to night, and the kidlets from classroom to playground, in a matter of easy styling.
With the high-waisted paperbag option they’re a statement piece and outfit star! Pair with a tucked-in Strappy Cami (or fitted top) and simple shoes for maximum visual impact. Add the tie belt for even more wow. In the shorts or trousers length, the paperbag waist is a wardrobe winner, brilliant for summer and winter alike.
With the plain waist option they’re just as lovely! If you prefer to wear your tops untucked, this plain waist option is perfect for you!
Simply add sneakers or heels and accessories to get the look you’re after! Comfy and practical for the school run, office, missioning around town, or an evening event for the adults, and ideal for playground rough and tumble, climbing trees and kicking balls, the classroom, or a fancier-than-normal event for the youngsters.
Skill Level – Perfect for beginner sewistas.
Sizes – Pattern includes children’s sizes newborn to 12 years and ladies’ sizes XXS to 5XL! See the size chart in the gallery above.
Options – Two length options: short and long, two waistband options: paperbag and plain, optional tie belt and side leg vents.
Ideas – Use a contrasting fabric for the inside of the pockets and tie belt for an extra bit of fun, or sequins-bedazzled fabric for something more formal.
Fabrics – Medium-weight wovens. If you use a fabric which is stiffer, it will give the pants more structure. Some great suggestions are duchess satin, crepe satin, cotton drill, cotton lawn, linen, denim, taffeta, velvet, wool, cotton or polycotton
If you use a fabric with a print or nap such as velvet, remember to cut all pieces in the same direction and to allow extra fabric for this.
See the fabric requirements in the gallery above for yardage. A serger/ overlocker is optional but NOT required.
