Sidewinder Pant

Regular price $16.50

Unit price per 

Size

A simply constructed pant with a side seam that wraps the leg in diagonal line to flatter and streamline. The angled seam encompasses the easy-sew front internal pocket. The Sidewinder pants are pull on, with minimal back gather and easily constructed without buttons, zips or fastenings.

With a lightly tapered leg, these pants are designed to be worn just above the ankle with either a standard, fold up or deep gathered hem. The Sidewinders look just as flattering in the full length trouser option.

A perfect pattern for your first trousers - ideal for confident beginners.

STYLE OPTIONS: 

  • Fold under hem in 7/8 or full length.
  • Gathered hem in 7/8 or full length.

FABRIC

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.

Designed for mid weight WOVEN fabrics, the Sidewinder Pants work well in polyester, viscose, tencel, linen and cotton blends. The pattern also has good results  in a light weight wool blend suiting for colder temperatures.  Keep in mind that a mid weight fabric that drapes well is preferred. If the fabric is too heavy or stiff the back waist gather will not flatter. 

Patterned fabric - The side seam is a key design feature and important to keep in mind when choosing your fabric. Jacquards, small prints and plain (block colour) are the easiest to sew. Plaids also look good (refer sample images) but are best matched at the side seam (intermediate sewers will find this easy enough and there is a tutorial to help here).

Sample images- our grey plaid sample is our stand out favourite and is constructed in a polyester/viscose weave with 2% spandex. The spandex is not essential but the fabric drapes beautifully, moves well and is easy to sew. The Sidewinder pants are designed for non-stretch woven fabrics so we do recommend you consider sewing down a size if you are using fabric with stretch.

DIFFICULTY

Confident Beginner (2/5).
The Sidewinder pants can be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams.

SIZE & FITTING

Please note that if you are in doubt, please choose the size depending on your HIP measurement. Choose your hip measure closest to the size chart in the first instance (and then refer to the finished measure chart for the amount of ease if you are "in between" sizes).

These pants have a gathered rear waistband (flat front) so the waist is easily adjustable. The hip measure should decide the size.

Each purchase comes with 4 sizes (please refer to the last image for size chart and international size comparisons). Hover over the image to magnify.

WHAT DO I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?

Please note you are purchasing a digital pattern that will be sent directly to your email inbox after payment. You can print this pattern at home on A4 or US letter-sized paper or take it to a print shop for large scale printing (AO size). *You will not receive a hard copy printed pattern.*

Instant download available immediately after checkout includes:

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here.

Love tencel joggers

This is a different take on the same old jogger patterns available. I love the sidewinder. Not only is it different, it’s easy. Best of all, flattering. Will become a staple in my capsule. Already planning my second make without the gather this time. - made my first pair from lyocell/tencel. Love! Will be trying more pattern from this site!

Another stylish pattern that is simple to sew and looks great, fits well. I appreciate the different cuff options too.

sizing

My experience with PDF patterns is that they usually include all sizes so with that assumption I bought the pants pattern and realized it did not include my size (14). I ended up paying twice just to get the correct size so it was little off-putting.

Please just reach out to us directly next time if you have an issue so that we get the opportunity to put things right for you immediately. Happy sewing. Kind regards, Janine

A great style

I love them. I made the smallest size in a drill which sit nicely and a closer fit in the next size up in a soft cotton. Very comfy and flattering. I did find tI had to layout the pattern a little differently though to cut on the grain

Great Trousers!

I love this pattern. Very quick and easy to sew. Can be worn smart or casual while still being comfortable. I've rustled up a few pairs for heading back to the office after lockdown.
