Size Guide and Yardage Requirements


In Greece, the rich bougainvillea bushes, bursting with their bright reds and purples, bring color and life to the stillness of the white houses that line the narrow streets. This is the image that inspired us to create these minimalistic, easy-to-sew but essential pieces that will add joy and playfulness to any of your summer outfits. We called this collection Calantha, a Greek name that means ‘‘lovely flower’’.  So, don't be afraid to choose the brightest tones, the ones that you've never dared to try—now is the time!

Calantha collection includes a pair of shorts and pants with a wide and solid waistband, inspired by the belts of traditional Greek costumes. This not only makes the shorts and trousers look modern, but also ensures a very good fit on your waist.

Easy and simple sewing techniques make this pattern beginner-friendly. No zippers, pockets, or closures.

If you ever wanted the ideal garment to take you from sewing stuff to sewing clothes - Calantha Pattern Collection is the perfect pick.

Once I purchase this pattern how do I set up fitting measurements? I'm a newer customer. Thank you for your assistance.

please send an email to us for fit support. it is a good idea to provide your measurements if you need help selecting a size. If you have your size, it is a great idea to have sewn up a toile/ trial so that the fitter can help diagnose and recommend any adjustments you may need.

That is the Aurelia Pattern which is currently in development.

Lauren • August 14, 2023

Most of your earlier patterns include pics on plus-sized models which I found very helpful. Why not here?

Hello, Thanks for your feedback. We endeavour to use a wide variety of models for all of our patterns. Things just didn't line up for us this time around, but we hear you and thank you for your feedback.

Lauren • August 5, 2023

Using linen for the pattern, will it work right if the new sewist trims down the width of the leg as well as lengthen? So that they are still very loose and give a lot of movement, but just not too baggy? Are there instructions inside the packet of how much to thin/mark inside the suggested sizes to achieve that goal w/out ruining it?

Wendy • August 1, 2023

Yes, you can adjust you pattern in this way, of course, it is always a good idea to make a trial to test out your alterations for your body.

Lauren • August 1, 2023

Is it possible to make the leg profile a bit skinnier?

Paula • August 1, 2023

These pants are easy to adjust for your preferred fit. To make the leg slimmer you can taper the leg down from the waist and hip to the ankle.

Lauren • August 1, 2023

Which blue linen is shown here in the 5th photo? Thanks!
