Meet our NEW Chiara Pants Pattern
Meet our latest pattern – the Chiara Pants! This wide leg pant has a flared hem, front and back darts and side invisible zipper opening. The waistline is finished with a stitched down facing. Depending on your fabric choice, Chiara works perfectly as a more casual wear, but she can look equally fabulous in a dressier style when made up in a silk or crepe.
These pants have been designed to be a winning wardrobe staple. It’s a super simple style that works with most tops including summer tanks, t-shirts, shirts, jumpers and more cropped styles such as our Leni.
If they look familiar, that’s because they probably are. Chiara is a new and improved version of our now discontinued Chloe Pants Pattern. Chloe, published back in 2012, was a straight leg design whilst Chiara has been given a 2018 style update with a slight flare. If you’re not a fan of an elastic waist, then these are definitely the pants for you! The topstitched waist facing gives a nice smooth finish and is attached to the side invisible zip with a neat little sewing tip, covered in our comprehensive instructions.
Suitable fabrics for Chiara include non-stretch wovens such as medium-heavy weight linen, wool , wool crepe, polyester or viscose blend crepe, heavy drapey silks and medium weight cotton denim. Chiara comes in (Australian) sizes 6-16 and is now available in both hardcopy and PDF copy shop/print-at-home version.
