*this is the classic paper pattern version; for the print-at-home
version on A4 and letter sized paper click here.

At last! A fabulous hybrid of slouchy, comfy
trackpants and slick
tailored trouser, these
super-cool pants are designed for a light
to medium-weight drapey fabric... think heavy crepe, hammered
weight wool, rayon suiting or a ponte knit.

Slim cut with a relaxed fit, this pull-on pant has a slightly tapered
silhouette and
features a separate, elasticated waistband with faux
drawstring trim, plus side seam

Pants sit at the natural waist and
finish above the ankle with a narrow cuff.

Depending on your fabric choices, this is a year-round, go-anywhere,
do anything
piece...you could wear these with an off-the-shoulder
oversized slouchy sweater, a slim-fit short or long sleeved T, or a
to the-body sporty-styled zip-up jacket.

    I would give this pattern 10 stars if I could

    Posted by nothy lane on 30th Sep 2019

    These are my go-to pants pattern. They are easy to dress up or down, based on fabric choice. I've made them in jersey as well as a fluid polyester rayon blend. I plan to make them in a heavier knit soon. It fits nicely at the waist and is roomy without being too big at the hip. (I used 2 inch elastic instead of the called for 5/8". I have a huge roll of 2 inch elastic handy, I didn't even look for the 5/8" elastic.) Also, on both pairs I made, I opted not to have the leg elastic, personal preference I guess. This pattern has pockets - would you expect anything less from Trudy? What else can I say? If you want to be comfortable at work - try this pattern! If you want to wear them out for the night- try this pattern! If you want a nice pair of pants to lounge at home in - try this pattern. It is that versatile!

    Just finishing up a winner

    Posted by Therese on 5th Apr 2015

    I made a "wearable muslin" out of cotton crepe which turned out to be just a tad stiff for these but still "wearable." As I am almost 6 feet tall, I added 1 inch to the crotch depth, 4 inches to the leg length, hollowed out the crotch curve a little and they fit perfectly. Love the waistband design, but had a hard time finding 5/8" elastic. Just located some on Etsy. Have plans for two more versions soon - a stretch wool and a cotton-blend French terry. Just "found" HotPatterns last year and so far have had all hits and no misses. Oh! and love, love, love the pockets! and the tutorial was really helpful as well.

    Excellent fit, no alterations needed, love the cuff

    Posted by Robyn on 4th Oct 2014

    I used a rayon ponte for a muslin and they are perfect. I'm 5'3" and did not alter the length. This pattern has proven it is silk-worthy, I love them (although I guess I'll need to muslin again with a woven - not sure if I can count on the fit being the same). Not poufy in the waist, not tight in the hip, perfect fit under the rear. I used 3" elastic in the waistband rather than 3 strips of 5/8". Just seemed easier and I like it. I made a size 6, grading up to 8 in the waist.

    Great pattern

    Posted by Donna on 14th Jan 2014

    I liked this pattern but I would like to see alteration lines on the pattern. For instance if you need to adjust crotch area or front area or if you want to lengthen the legs. The lines were a bit difficult to follow because they were so tight and so many sizes on one pattern. Overall it sewed together nicely.

    These really are wonderful pants. They can be made quickly, they are stylish and comfortable when finished. Exactly what I wanted! I love them! They work particularly well with ponte--my new favorite pant fabric!

    great pattern

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Nov 2013

    I made these in a ponte that was mostly cotton but has wool and lycra. They are fabulous. Instructions were clear and pattern easy to change according to my usual changes.
