Well ladies, today I’m so crazy excited to finally release a project I’ve been working on for months with you.
I’ve created this printable sewing pattern and then re-created it again and again, perfecting the size and fit until it was just right.
This wide leg pant features a wide, stretch waistband that emphasises your waist while still being incredibly feminine, stylish and most importantly, comfortable. It lays flat across your waistline with absolutely zero bulk and the most comfortable fit.
Then, the wide leg pant is crazy-comfortable (and very on-trend right now) so you can wear it with tucked in shirts, casual tees, or even a tailored blazer for the office. I designed the legs of these pants to be flowy and breezy to give you the most comfortable fit possible.

How To Put Your Wide Leg Pants Together
Assemble and print out your pattern. Then, lay out your fabric and cut out your pattern pieces. You will need to cut out two leg pieces and one waistband piece.
Take one leg piece and set it aside. With your right sides together, Fold the leg in half, lining up your side seams.
Pin the side seams together and sew. You can either use a serger or a narrow zig-zag stitch with a ballpoint needle.
Repeat on the other side so you have two legs that resemble long tubes.
Now, it’s time to attach the legs together at the crotch. With the right sides together, match your pant pieces together at the center back and pin. Then, work your way around the crotch of your pants until you are at the center front. Sew together.
Now your project is beginning to resemble pants. It’s time to finish them off by adding the waistband. Set your leg pattern pieces aside and get your waistband pattern piece out.
Fold your waistband in half “hamburger” style so the short ends are together. Sew.
Now you have a short tube of fabric. Bring each end of your stitch line together by folding the waistband in half so the raw seams are together.
Place a pin at the stitchline. This will mark your center back. Then, stretch your waistband tube in either direction to find the exact opposite side. Place a pin here to mark the center front. Next, hold your waistband on either side and stretch to pull the two needles together, finding the location of your side seams. Pin to mark. This technique is called the “quartered off” method.
If this step is at all confusing, just watch the video tutorial above for a detailed explanation.
Now that your waistband is marked with center back, center front, and side seams, it’s time to match those points up with your pant legs. Pin in place.
