The Bump Hugger pants are the only pant pattern you'll need to get you through pregnancy. From chafe prevention shorts to work trousers, this pattern can do it all.

The lack of horizontal seaming makes these pants very comfortable. Nothing digs in. Just a gentle hug over your belly. Despite not being snug, they stay up because of the unique shape to the crotch curves, and the 1" elastic waistband. 

This pattern comes with two sets of pattern pieces - a tight leg and a wide leg. Each set has three main options - a one piece leg, a two piece leg, and a three piece leg with a pocket. We've added length markings so you can easily make shorts, capri, cropped, or full length pants.

You can make these start to finish in 30 minutes. In one day of sewing, you can make a whole wardrobe of maternity pants at a fraction of the cost of buying retail.

This is our first pattern using our new "choose your ease" sizing system. The size chart includes minimum and maximum measurements for the waist and thigh. The minimum is the garment measurement. The maximum is the garment measurement plus 60%, which is the average horizontal stretch for knits. This allows you to choose a size that is snug, loose, or something in between. Learn more about this sizing system here.

Skill Level: Suitable for beginners!  There are minimal pattern pieces and you can easily tell which is which.  

Fabric: Horizontal stretch of 60%.  Vertical stretch of 40% required.  Bamboo/spandex, merino/spandex, cotton/spandex, ponte, yoga knit, denim-look knit, double brushed polyester.

Maternity friendly:  Yes.

File Type: Layered, trimless PDF for printing at home (separate files for wide leg and legging).  Layered projector.  Layered A0 copyshop file.  All files can be printed in black in white.

Size range:  11 sizes from XXS to 5X that fit:
Waist 35 - 88in / 89 - 224cm
Thigh 21 - 48in / 52 - 122cm

Time to complete:  Start to finish is about 30 minutes.  Side panel version is about 45 minutes. 

Tutorial:  We use full color photographs.  The harder steps have links to videos.  Simplified, fast construction.  The tutorial has Adobe bookmarks to help you find the page you need.

Download Type:  You will receive a zipped (compressed) file.  Download the .zip file, right click on the file and select "extract all".

About our Patterns


We aim for inclusive patterns that fit all bodies. If you don't see your size on this pattern, send us a message and we'll add it in!

Print Internationally

Our tiles have two layers, labeled A4 and Letter. US printers use the Letter layer, and everyone else can use A4!

Trimless Tiles

We designed our tiles to save paper and be easy to assemble. Place the guidelines on top of each other and tape or glue. The letter layer has solid guidelines with a star in each corner. The A4 layer has dashed guidelines with a circle in each corner. Each page has a number, and the tutorial has an assembly chart.

Copyshop Printing

A0 pages are 33.25" by 60" and are printable at most copyshops. We design ours to be printable in black and white. There are no passwords on any of our files.

Projector Optimized Files

Every pattern comes with a projector optimized pdf file. See what our projector file includes here.

Video + Picture Tutorial

We use pictures in our tutorials, not line drawings. We add in videos of steps that testers have a hard time understanding.


Our tutorial has a table of contents, along with bookmarks. This allows you to quickly get to the page you need.


When a pattern is updated, you will get an email notification. Since we are a newer pattern company, we are updating several times a year as our skills improve.

Download Instructions

Each download contains a zipped (compressed) file, for downloading all the files at once.  Download the .zip file, right click on the file and select "extract all". 

We also include each file individually, if you wish to download each file separately.
