Watsonia Pants Sewing Pattern

Another free pattern and another that is going to become a firm favorite from mood fabrics. The stylish buttoned pockets look great and the natural drawstring gives it a down-to-earth look.

We like that the instructions are simple and are made to suit a beginner although there are more skillful sections such as applying the zipper which is explained well to make it less daunting.

This is one of the most popular patterns on our list so there’s another reason to grab this pattern.

Primrose Pants Sewing Pattern

The only thing better than the design of these pants is the fact that the pattern is free.

We love the paper bag waist giving some texture lines to an outfit and it has the kind of look that can blend into any season with no problem.

Using stretch cotton corduroy is the most sensible option, not to mention the most fabulous but it is possible to switch in some cotton denim, wool twill, or Ponte knit if you prefer the feel and look.

It’s important for kids to stay comfortable but that doesn’t mean they can’t look smart should the occasion warrant it. This is why we love this slim slacks pattern

The slacks can be worn with a short-sleeved shirt for a cute look and because they are made from refashioned and the mix of colors ensures they look as though they were store-bought.

More of a guide for an important section of the pant-making process but this is a good page to pin and refer to later.

Retro Palazzo Pants

The reto comes in the form of a funky pattern but also the loose fit and style of these cool pants.

Use a machine to make light work of the stitching and spend more time on finding more printed fabric as that is where the fun is right?

Once you have mastered this pattern you can buy different fabric prints and enjoy the flowing light feel that can be worn in the summer.

This is one for the advanced sewers as this is going to take a weekend to accomplish but if you want high-fashion, then it takes a little longer.

Skinny Jeans For Kids

This might not work for every child as some just won’t put on jeans but with any luck these will become a firm favourite.

You;ll be glad of it too since they are heard wearing and more resistant to holes in the knees because of the thickness of the denim.

We would say it takes a step up from beginner level to master this design but they are undeniably cute and it is best to use a pair of jeans they already fit for a guide.

Aladdin Pants

Unfortunately mama this is one for the kids. As. much as we all love the flowing feel of baggy Aladdin pants the children get the benefit of the cool feel here. It is an intermediate pants sewing pattern but that is more because of the time it takes to make them rather than being overly complex.

It is best to use a fun fabric maybe something floral or with hearts to make them as exciting as they should be. Heavier fabric is good so corduroy is always popular with this design but it is best to not go as far as using denim or they will get heavy.
