Trousers and Shorts Patterns

You can have legwear for days with Sewdirect's huge selection of trouser and short patterns for men, women and unisex wardrobes. Easy trouser patterns in a range of styles mean it's simple to build outfits for work, home or leisure wear. Choose a wide leg trouser pattern for extra comfort and to keep cool on hot days, or opt for short sewing patterns to show some leg in the summertime. Find your favourite trouser pattern for ladies or men, and start creating some coordinates with tops and jackets in matching fabric. The joy of short and trouser sewing patterns is that once you find a style you like, you can make the same garment in as many colours and fabrics as you want, giving you legwear for every time of year.

Trousers for active and loungewear

Comfy cosy pant sewing patterns for lounging around mean when you just want to chill, you can reach for your favourite pair of soft, warm trousers. Our trouser patterns include sleepwear sewing patterns to help you create the perfect PJs - long or short, drawstring or button-up, pockets or no pockets, it's up to you! If you enjoy an active lifestyle, go for sportier trousers or short patterns and use more rugged material, for a hard-wearing but still comfortable set of gym wear. Or take your sewing pattern as a starting point and add your own inspiration, to come up with a truly unique lounge suit with matching top and pants.
