Sidewinder Pant

Regular price $16.50

Unit price per 


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.


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

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.


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


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).

Please refer here for help choosing the size

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. 

3. AO Pattern file
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.

Easy breezer trouser

These were my first Sidewinders. I made them in a lightweight textured cotton that is perfect for summer. I'm 5'3", so I cut my size 10 pattern about 4cm shorter than the pattern's 7/8 cut line, which worked pretty well for my turned-up hem. I look forward to making another summer-weight version, as well as a twill or wool blend for cooler weather.

Cool details that sew up easily

I enjoyed sewing the Sidewinder pants and will definitely make a winter-weight pair.

This was my first time purchasing a pattern from Sewing Revival and it definitely won't be my last. I have my eye on other gorgeous patterns. The whole experience was easy and the pattern very well drafted and instructions so easy to follow. Well done to the Sewing Revival team.

Hello Janine, thank for the opportunity to share my thoughts. I made a toile for these pants. The fit at the back was aweful. I could not figure out how to correct it. I got another pattern for pants where the fit is better and overlaid them, but it was still not clear what the best approach would be. When I have time I will remake the toile, and adjust the crotch length. It would be helpful to have these markings including waist line on the pattern. I do love the look of them, and hope I can get them to fit. The only other thought was to remove the gathers at the back, make darts, and put in a zipper, which may make fitting them a bit more straight forward. Sorry for the negative response but I will let you know how I get on. On the postive side , I found using your PDFs patterns straight forward and easy to assemble. cheers, Jean

Hi Jean, Thanks for taking the time to feedback. I notice you purchased your pattern on 6 June - and an update to this pattern was sent out on the 17th. Please check you have sewn up the latest version (a quick check of the logo printed on each pattern piece will tell you - please ensure it has our new needle flower logo consistent with the one on the website). The updated pattern fits better around the crutch and the leg has a better drape. Please feel free to contact us on if you have further issues and we'll do our best to sort them for you. Kind regards, Janine
