Designed for STRETCH WOVEN fabrics*, the pants look great in a woven stretch like bengaline, ponte or drill cotton (with 5% elastaine/lycra or spandex)
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.

SKILL LEVEL - 4/10 Confident Beginner
Suitable for Confident Beginners/Intermediate sewers. The Pukeko Pant is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the raw edges of the seams. There are no zips or button holes. You will need to use the stretch stitch on your sewing machine (or medium zig-zag). Refer to our blog on sewing with stretch.
