Pull on straight leg pant that are comfortable to wear & easy to sew. The deep waistband is flattering around the waist and hips with a classic straight leg that can either be worn as a 7/8 or full length trouser.
A good introduction to sewing with stretch. Whilst an overlocker (serger) makes sewing these pants a breeze, the stretch stitch on your sewing machine (and in the absence of that - a medium stitch length zig-zag) will do the trick.
You will sew up this pattern more than once. The 7/8 length is perfect for shoulder seasons and looks great with heels, flats or sneakers. The full length Pukeko pant is ideal for work or evening wear. Because they are so super comfy - you might just find they are also great for simply relaxing at home too.
