Closet Core Patterns Mitchell Trousers


The Mitchell trousers are a modern interpretation of a classic pleated trouser. Elegant and comfortable with very special details, they are destined to become your new favourite bottoms.

The Mitchell Trousers are high-waisted with a fly front zipper and a comfy hidden waistband facing for a sleek continuous silhouette through the rise.  Choose between a hidden pants hook and bar or classic button closure.  Deep pleats in the front enclose a unique angled pocket. Darts shape the back, with optional back welt pockets.

View A features a tapered leg ending at the ankle. View B features a full-length wide leg and adjustable waist straps secured with D-rings or sliders.

This is a multi sized pattern including sizes 0-20.

Recommended Fabric :

  • For a structured look, use sturdy woven fabrics like light to midweight denim, twill and canvas, and midweight linen, cotton, and wool suiting.
