Our New Demi Pants Pattern
March 23, 2016
Meet our newest pattern – the Demi Pants! This pull-on, cropped pants pattern features an elasticised waist and full leg with side stitched down pockets. A clever pleat detail at the front and back hemline is finished with a bias bind band at hem. Comfortable and stylish, the pattern is quick and easy to make and wears comfortably in both casual or dressier modes.
Colette’s black pair (below) is made up in our Hartford Black linen. She’s teamed it with a RTW top worn over her Alexa T Top made up in Black Line Cruise (also available in red).
The Demi Pant looks great with both longer and shorter style tops. Silva’s wearing hers (below) with a self-drafted top made up in our Chagos White. She’s been wearing these for a while now and the compliments come thick and fast with every outing!
My pair (below) are made up in our Slate Pebble Wash Linen. Being on the shorter side – ok, short – I altered the pattern so the hem sits a little further above the ankle.
The side hem pleat detail, featured on both front and back leg, gives these pants such a great shape and they look equally good with a pair of heels as they do with casual flats.
And did I mention that they’re SUPER comfortable? Oh yes friends, they really truly are.
Suitable fabrics for the Demi Pants include linen, lightweight wool, cotton, viscose and crepe (not suitable for knits or stretch wovens). The pattern is now available in both hardcopy and digital PDF print-at-home/copy shop versions.
