A versatile pattern to make a pair of lovely wide legged trousers which come in two lengths: cropped or full length in sizes 8-22.
Suitable to make in drapey linen or linen mixes or even bold cotton prints for a holiday project. Other suitable fabrics are soft 4-8oz fluid denims for autumn/ spring or in viscose/polyester type fabrics which, in the long length version, makes a more 'Palazzo pants' style for summer.

These trousers are loose fitting, wide legged, with two big side pockets, flattering front pleats and a wide elasticated back waistband with an optional tie belt with tabs. They are comfortable as well as practical and stylish.
There’s also an optional back pocket add on piece which you can download for free on the Sewgirlblog by the way.

Elsie trouser pattern is suitable for adventurous beginners with some previous dressmaking experience. Please note that the instructions are in English only with metric measurements.

The pattern includes sturdy paper templates, step-by-step photo instructions and instructions and sizing information. For information about measurements and fabric requirements see the size chart picture.
Elsie Trousers pattern is also available as a PDF digital download on a separate listing.

Tip: allow 15cm for ease on the finished HIP measurement for a comfortable fit. It’s true to size, I personally make a size 16 (my normal size) for a more snug fit or the next size up for a looser baggier style which I prefer).
