Pukeko Pants

Regular price $18.50

Unit price per 


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.

Pukeko Pants

I have made 2 pairs. The 1st was intended to be a muslin, (I used some stretch denim I had on hand) but turned out so well, I can definitely wear them. Making pattern adjustments for my measurements was easy. The pants fit perfectly

Perfect in Ponte

I made these with a really nice black ponte from Joann. As always with TSR the pdf’s and instructions are awesome. I’m a fan for sure.

Great relaxed pants

The pattern was clear and easy to follow. I added side pockets and I wear them for golf and out for dinner too. Love them.

Pukeko pants

First and only disaster with seeing revival. Just didn’t work out. Followed measurements and the pants were just too big and Ill fitting.


The Sewing Revival

Hi Liz, So sorry you are disappointed with the Pukeko Pants sewing pattern. Could you please email or message us with your measures and the size you made up so we can follow up with you. Is it possible you sewed up the US size instead of the NZ? This is a well celebrated pattern and we haven't had this feedback before.

Still waiting for the A0 sized patter

I haven't actually used it yet, as I am still waiting for the A0 version to be available. Sadly, had I known only the A4 print-at-home version was going to be provided, I probably would not have purchased it. I will be more than happy to update and provide a more positive response on receipt/when I have used it. :)


The Sewing Revival

Hi Geraldine, the AO version has been available for some time - you just needed to purchase all the sizes. We updated the pattern to our standard offering today so the AO (Print shop version) is available with every size bundle. Kind regards, Janine

Wonderful Pants

Just love these pants. So easy to make and the most comfortable pants ever, especially for ladies of my age with a changing body shape. About to make a pair for my elderly mum as she tried mine on and loved them. Great pattern.....thanks so much sewing revival!

Best sewing pattern for trousers ever

The instructions were so easy and clear, I have already made 3 pairs of trousers and folded the pattern half way to make smart shorts. This will definitely be my go to pattern for trousers. I am a beginner but found this pattern one of the most useful so far. I used cotton sateen with stretch for this pattern.

should have asked for help

This is the 4th TSR pattern I have used. I love them, however as an reasonalbly experienced sewer I should have checked out a concern I had before making these. The fabric I brought was one-way stretch but down the grain. When I lay the pattern out for cutting i was worried about the stretch but the patter specifically had a layout for 112cm one way stretch fabric so I thought should follow it. Disaster!! couldn’t get hem past my knees…straight to the bin. Second pair I used 2 way Ponti, printed and cut a larger size after a careful measure of myself. 100% improvement but way too big Huummfff! Will have to consider whether I give these another go or stick to my absolute favourite Side Winder Pants!


The Sewing Revival

Hi Sue, We are very sorry to hear this. The pattern indicates the direction of the grainline - not the direction of stretch. We will update this asap - but generally, a stretch always goes across the body. I am pretty confident that if you had put the stretch direction across the body (rather than up and down), with your first version, you would have had a good fit result with these pants. Please always feel free to reach out to use via email if you ever have a query. Kind regards, Janine Please always feel free to reach out any time

The download and instructions are very easy to follow. The pattern was easy to follow and the finished pants were exactly what I was hoping for.

Amazing pants!!

Great, though when printing some of the matching up circles didn’t print making it very difficult to piece together - I ended up taking it to get A0 print copy to make it more accurate.

Great fitting pants

I love this pattern. Such a quick and easy make that came together really quickly. The fit is great. I may need to take them in a little at the waist for the next pair. I have a flat bottom so pants are often tricky to fit, but these look amazing on me.

Perfect summer pants

I made these in a cotton satin /Lycra and a size 10. The fit was perfect and they are very comfortable. For a fraction of the cost of a pair I found in the shops. Looking for more fabric to make another pair.

Pukeko pants

Excellent pattern. Had to make a minor adjustment to back waistband, but that wasn’t the pattern - just my shape. Already made two pairs!

I'm in love with my Pukeko Pants

The instructions were easy to follow. I only had to do some alterations at the front. It's a great pattern for beginners and for more curvy women.

Pukeko Perfection

This is one of my favourite patterns. Easy to sew up, looks great and will definitely make again and again. Only trouble is I want to try a size down but I’ve exceeded my download limit and can’t find where I’ve saved the files on my pc. A download limit of three seems a bit mean, especially as I only remember downloading it once.
