In The Folds. Darlow Pants
The Darlow pants are a cropped, tapered pant full of interesting panel lines and details. They have been designed to give a new spin to the basic pant and can be worn as an easy and casual option or dressed up for a nice evening option.
The pants sit on the natural waist and feature a fly front with zip closure, shaped waistband, in-seam pockets, back pockets and hem facings. The Darlow pants are designed to be quite fitted through the waist and hip, before more volume is added through the leg, for an interesting shape.
View A has slightly more volume through the leg than View B, and features patch pockets, while View B has back welt pockets. Both comprise a number of interesting shaped panel lines that encourage a unique shape and an interesting experience. Some of the photographs have the panel lines drawn on, so that you can get a better idea of how the panel lines work on the body.
The Darlow pants are beautifully designed and carefully drafted to include many interesting details, to make this a very enjoyable sew for confident sewers. The pattern comes with fully illustrated instructions to hold your hand every step of the way which can be printed at home, or simply viewed on a computer or tablet.
DIfficulty: 3/5. You should be confident using sewing patterns and can handle basic pattern alterations to achieve a good fit.
By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: fitting pants, sewing a fly front, sewing pockets (patch or welt - depending on the style you choose to make), piecing panels together, working with curved seams and attaching a waistband.
This is a multi-sized pattern, to fit within the following measurement ranges:
Waist: 61cm - 116cm
Hip: 84cm - 139cm
Recommended fabrics: The pattern is compatible with mid to heavy weight woven fabrics.
Consider using: linen, linen blends, cotton drill/twill, denim or wool. For a softer, more dressy silhouette, consider using midweight silk or similar. Keep in mind that View A has more volume in the thigh / knee area and you may want to use mid-weight fabric (rather than heavy weight fabric) for this reason.
Fabric requirements: see image for details.
