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.

Colette’s pair (above) are made up in our Midnight Washed Linen and mine (below) are in Hartford Licorice.

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.
