I made these in IL0 19 Black. I loved how easy these were to make, and they looked great on while I was standing. When I sat down though......!!! I plan to make these again but alter them to fit since I need more "bottom" coverage when sitting. I've found a great tutorial to do this.
I used the il037 natural on this pattern, to make a roomy versatile pant, for gardening, sheep trending, child chasing, and an alternative to leggings under skirts and tunics. I made the 8/10 size with French seams which ended up a bit bulkier than I would like. I'll learn proper felling on my next pant project! Very pleased for my first pants.
i made the 4/6 size and although it has a great shape it was too big. do you have a smaller size? is there a 0/2?
Thanks for your review. We have a tutorial for grading patterns on our blog which should help you make your pattern your ideal size. Rather than grading up, use the tutorial as a guide for grading your pattern down a size. blog.fabrics-store.com/2015/06/01/how-to-grade-a-pattern-tutorial/ You may also like our Magda pattern which comes in a 0/2 size. fabrics-store.com/sewing-patterns/magda-crisp-linen-pants-pattern
I have made so many different patterns for elastic pants over the years and this one is now my go to...as another reviewer stated...better than any of the elastic waisted pant patterns out there for sale. Thank you FS!
Easiest and best project I've ever made! I love these! They are comfortable and flattering. I made them 10cm shorter and did the bottom hem 2 cm because I prefer the look. I also did it all with French seams and it turned out beautifully! They're a little bit too small on the back, I will be making these again, and just adding some length there. And the PDF pattern says size 4/6 required 2.75 yards. That was not the case for me... I needed maybe about 2? But probably even less I think. But I will be making a second pair because I love them so much anyway!
Hello, this is a nice pattern. Thank you! Where can I find the body measurements for this pant?
Good afternoon! This is one of our first patterns and we didn't make size charts back then. The model is wearing a size 6 and she needed 2 yards of fabric to make them. You can find the full tutorial here: blog.fabrics-store.com/2016/09/30/linen-morocco-inspired-pants-tutorial/
Once I got through the Adobe shenanigans, I ended up making some minor modifications for fit. I did the first pair as the pattern stands, but the one thing I insisted on was POCKETS. I also adjusted the third pair to be a capri length. Let me tell you friends, this is probably the MOST comfortable pair of pants I own. They're perfect for summer wear, and not having elastic at the front of the waist band really helps with not cutting into my belly. A very easy to follow pattern, and I did all of mine with French seams so they're sturdy as heck! Thank you for this free pattern!
I cannot stop making these pants. I added pockets then used a cheque linen fabric, which is great for work. The latest pair I customised by adding pockets, drawstrings at the natural waist, and turned up trouser hems. I am feeling smug in this summer heat. Thank you for sharing this pattern.
Hi there, I have the pattern downloaded and everything but had a hard time finding the tutorial link, but when I did I was unable to access/ complicated to access the blog. It was very inconvenient. Is there an easier way to access the tutorials? can you just attached the tutorial along with the patterns?
Hi! We have the tutorial link in the PDF file - it might be hard to notice - it is on the second page of the PDF file you've downloaded. Just in case - you can copy and paste this link into your browser and it will take you to the tutorial: blog.fabrics-store.com/2016/09/30/linen-morocco-inspired-pants-tutorial/
I made these pants over the weekend, they were so easy I could have made them in a day! I altered the pattern to make them high-waist, because that is my preference. They are 100% my new favourite lounge and weekend pants. Will definitely be making another pair, next time with pockets. Thanks for the free pattern and SUPER easy instructions. I've been looking for linen pants everywhere and I'm so happy I was able to make them myself.
Hello! I am loving all of your patterns and I'm planning on making a pair of these pants this weekend. I am wondering if there is enough ease to place inseam pockets? I am making a size 8/10 with my hip measurements being 40 inches. Thanks for all that you do!
Hi! I just sent an email over to the writers asking to email you with their suggestion to your inquiry. They know how that pattern is built and will be best able to help. Have a great day.
Great pattern and instructions, but would you add a photo page to the pdf download so we have an idea of what the finished product looks like when using the pattern (and away from a computer) - Many thanks for your excellent patterns.
Hi Anita! Thank you for your suggestion to add the photo to the pattern PDF - right now we only have the photos available on the Thread where the sewing tutorial is for this pattern https://blog.fabrics-store.com/2016/09/30/linen-morocco-inspired-pants-tutorial/ But we are working on making the Thread tutorials printable so you could have the convenience of them while you are sewing and away from the computer.
These are by far my favorite pants. Thank you!
Easily customizable, well fitting pattern. I have made PJ's and great linen pants from these.
Amazing, a pant pattern in which the crotch curve gets deeper and wider with every size. You must have learned grading somewhere different from everyone else ! Thank you.
Love the looks of this pattern as have no one close to help me with a fitted pair of pants. and with wearing my shirt out all the time, these elastic waist pants are neat. T hank you for having pattern handy.
Two patterns shown here, Chelsea top in size 4/6 which fit great and was easy to make. Moroccan pants in size 0/2 which were a bit large on me so had to alter legs a bit. Made in 'heavy' linen. Loved the patterns, clear instructions. Waiting on my medium weight linen to make another pair of pants and maybe a different top, maybe the same one. Thanks!
