Trousers and shorts sewing patterns

Trousers have become a mainstay of everyday dressing. Our patterns offer endless style variations! If you’re in the business world, tailored shapes with a slim or wide leg convey a smart and professional image. For a modern look consider a narrow leg trouser in a length that skims the ankle bone. If a wider leg is your preference, then the length should cover the shoe. Athleisure styling is fashion at its most comfortable, practical and attractive enough to wear for many occasions. Palazzo pants in drapey fabrics are fabulous for summer days or elegant eveningwear. Other popular and very wearable shapes include bootcut and cropped styles. And of course, who doesn’t love relaxing in a pair of pull-ons and jogger-style bottoms! Summer days will be back before we know it, so many of our patterns offer flattering shorts options too. Don’t forget, all our pattern brands are multi-sized, which will help you to sew flattering, well-fitting trousers – in any style!
