Customer Questions and Answers


The site says this pattern comes in 0/2, but the actual pattern starts at 4. Where is the size chart? I don't see it on either the instructions or the pattern, which only shows the finished size. Thanks so much.

This is one of our earlier patterns which was released without a size chart and in limited sizes. If you would prefer a pattern in a smaller size, you might like to consider the Cass Culottes.

Will you be getting this fabric back in stock.? I love the color. I couldn't find it on the site to make these pants..

Pat • July 23, 2023

Apologies, We will not be restocking this fabric.

Lauren • July 23, 2023

Does anybody have front view of these pants? The back view doesn't really help me see the style. Thanks!

Is this American sizing? As I'm in the uk and a size 16 so the size I should aim for is the 12/14?

Kate • June 15, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

Yes, this is US sizing. Please consult the size chart's measurements to find you best size as sizing isn't standardised across pattern and clothing brands co could vary.

Lauren • June 15, 2023

What is the recommended ease on these pants, please? For instance, if I have a 38" hip circumference, would the size 4/6 have enough ease at 42"? Thank you!

Larissa • May 25, 2023

This pattern is designed so that you select your size based on your desired finished garment size. So you can select your desired ease :)

Lauren • April 18, 2023

Will you compare and contrast the Alexandra and Magda pants patterns for me please? I can't decide which to get.

Janet • April 11, 2023

The Alexandra have a straight cut with minimal tapering at the ankle and no side pockets. Magda has a slightly dropped crotch, tapered legs and a more exaggerated tapered leg shape due to the extra room at the waist. Magda comes with in-seam pockets. Both patterns are free downloads, so feel free to download and compare :)

There is a yardage chart included in the free download for this pattern, we estimate yardage based on our 55" wide linen which is close to 150cm

Excellent pattern

Loved this easy to follow pattern. I first made it in plain cotton just to test it as I am new to garment sewing. They fit perfectly!!!! I will now make them in a gorgeous linen.

A Pattern I Need to Alter

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.

Excellent all purpose pants!

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.

size too big

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. You may also like our Magda pattern which comes in a 0/2 size.

Very Flattering Pant!

I have made so many different patterns for elastic pants over the years and this one is now my go another reviewer stated...better than any of the elastic waisted pant patterns out there for sale. Thank you FS!

I used the Kenya fabric for the Alexander Moroccan pants, they were fabulous.. I even added some self-drafted pockets I paired it with a Phoebe top using some natural linen I had in my stash. Both free patterns were easy to use.

Cynthia • November 8, 2023

Very pleased with how the elastic waist sits, i would be perfectly happy to wear these every day!

Beth • April 20, 2021

I made them with black crepe and added pockets.

Catarina • April 17, 2021

Top and Moroccan pants in Fabrics-store Nine Iron. I added in-seam pockets. The flat front detail elevates this simple to sew design. The top is the LP Pullover of Paper Theory Patterns.

Jean • December 21, 2020

These were made with army green linen/cotton blend fabric. Love the way they look on, they are so flattering and so easy to make. I want to put patch pockets on the backside of my next pair.
