Pants that feel like pajamas, but are fancy enough to go out in!  

Pattern options:  You can make a wide leg pant, or a bubble pant by adding the included cuffs.  The adult pattern has two waistband heights, for a lower rise or yoga band.  We included instructions on how to remove the pleat, for a flat front pant.  Adult sizes have two short lengths and three pant lengths.

Difficulty:  Good for beginners who have worked with lightweight knits.  The pocket may be tricky for some sewists.

Fabric:  This pattern was drafted for at least 20% stretch fabrics. The waistband fabric needs to be at least 50% stretch. Vertical stretch is not necessary, but will make your pant more comfortable when sitting.  Avoid thicker fabrics, as the pleat will not lay nicely. Bamboo/spandex, merino wool rib knit, merino/spandex, cotton/spandex, double brushed polyester, ribbed knits. 

Yardage:  See the yardage chart in the pictures.  Up to 3 yards needed.

Special supplies needed:  None

Maternity friendlyFits pregnant bodies with no modifications needed.  Great for postpartum, but the waistband seam may bother c-section wounds/scars (sew the waistband seam on the outside to avoid irritation).

Nursing friendly:  N/A

Size range:  Newborn to adult 6X.  17" - 74” (43 - 188 CM) hip. 

Fit:  Snug throughout the waistband and hip, loose throughout the leg.

Pockets:  Yes, 2T and up.

Time to complete:   About an hour start to finish.

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!

Our size charts offer both metric and imperial measurements.

Seam Allowance

All of our patterns have a standard, 3/8" or 1 cm seam allowance.

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.

All of our files offer layers, allowing you to print only the size(s) you need.

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. Our A0 files have layers, allowing you to print only the size(s) you need.

Projector Optimized Files

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

All of our patterns are drafted digitally and tested with a projector in our paper-free studio.

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. We allow our testers access to our entire pattern catalog, which means we get continual feedback on our patterns.

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".
