Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image by clicking on it if viewing on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.
The Classic Pants or shorts are designed for light to mid-weight WOVEN fabrics.
We highly recommend linen, cotton drill or cotton sateen. Well draped wool and wool blends are great for winter.
*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. 100% cotton & linen will shrink during the first wash. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build-up that may have occurred during printing anyway.
SIZE & PRINTING
Each purchase comes with 4 sizes (please refer to the last image for size chart and international size comparisons):

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 will not receive a hard copy printed pattern.*
You will receive a link to download 3 different PDF files:
2. Print at home Pattern Tiles (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.
3. Large scale Pattern file (AO) for taking to your local Print Shop
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.
You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.
PATTERN UPDATE HISTORY
5 April 2023 - Pattern released
5 May 2023 - Pattern updated (.v2) to increase the waist width by 2cm. Instructions include how to adjust the waist back down if you require (if using fabric with a small amount of spandex, or would prefer a smaller waist and don't mind a "wiggle" to put them on for example).
