New pattern release – Straight leg knit pants pattern

Classic straight leg knit pants sewing pattern and video tutorial.  Video shows you how to fit too!

I’m delighted to announce the release of my latest sewing pattern – the Classic Straight Leg Knit Pants pattern.

An easy to sew and versatile pattern.  Great for beginners.  Sew a comfy and relaxed pair of pants  – dress them up or down depending on your fabric choices.  Fitted and shaped around the body, hips, and thighs with a straight leg falling from the hips, but taper them in from the knee if you prefer.  Great for work or make them in some funky fabric for relaxing.  Lightly gathered to a comfortable elastic waist for those days you need a little extra give.  Plenty of length in the leg and height in the rise for taller women, but easily adapted to shorter lengths too – the video will show you how to get a great fit.

Great pattern for some simple easy to wear pants to match everything in your wardrobe. Make them in black, brown, navy, grey – and never be without the right pants whatever the occasion. (Modeled here with the Gathered Front Top – free pattern.)

Available in 5 sizes.  Full video tutorial included as well as the step by step instructions.

 

The video shows you:

  • how to sew them
  • what stitches to use for knit fabrics
  • how to adjust the rise depth to make it just right for you
  • adding an elastic in a casing
  • how to create a neat flat front for a smoother look.

For stretch knit fabrics only.

It’s tried and tested!  Knit Pants Pattern Reviews

My lovely pattern testing group helped me ‘iron out a few wrinkles’ and made the instructions easy to understand – thank you ladies.

Irene from Serger Pepper got a new camera with remote for Christmas and really went to town ‘super-modelling’ her new pants with the gathered front top too.

And I can’t resist sharing these photos Emma snatched over the Christmas break, complete with her new cat socks!  Don’t you just love those.

Mariana from Handmade by Maryall prefered a tapered leg and found it easy to create the sort of silhouette she was looking for.  She commented that she liked the combination of the written and the video tutorial both being available.

These pants got great feedback:

“The numbered pages made it easy to put the pattern together.”

“They look and are very comfortable. They are definitely something that I would wear out with a hip length blouse or shirt.”

“I love the straight leg because here it’s winter and it’s nice to be able to put the pants over my winter boot and it looks more dressy this way.”

“The PDF was very easy to print and tape together. Much easier than many I have printed. The directions for the pants for very easy.”

“Thanks to the video, I learned a new way of figuring out where to put the elastic so it follows my natural waist. I tried it and I loved the way it came out. It’s the first time my elastic fits so well around my waist. The elastic seem to contour my waist instead of sitting on it and it stays in place.”

“I have sewn similar pants before from commercial pattern and I believe yours fits much better around the curves. Those pants are so comfortable. I forget that I have them on! Well kind of ! Even after sitting and moving I find that I don’t have to repositioned my pants. They are so great for walking. I will make them again for sure!”

    Hi Deby and congrats for your new pattern release! You already know how much I love this pattern, so I’m not going to tell you this! I think it’s one of those basic patterns you simply have to have!

    This looks like a great pattern! I come from a family of long-waisted women (although I am not one myself), and they always have difficulty finding pants that fit them properly. This one looks simple enough for me to tackle, and your excellent instructions will really help with that. Thank you!

  3. Diya says:

    Love the gathered front top you have worn in the pics :)

  4. dara says:

    Debby, your pants are beautiful! they are just what i’ve been looking for . However will they become availiable in paper patterns, my computer does not do well with pdf patterns. thanks for your response. Dara

    • Deby Coles says:

      I’m sorry Dara, I can’t afford to get them printed as a paper pattern. It’s so expensive and for the few that I sell, and the cost of the postage from the Cayman Islands, its just impossible. But if you can explain more about your PDF pattern problem, I would do my very best to help you out and get it printed. This one really isn’t difficult. If you can open a PDF and you have a printer, it should be very straightforward.

      • Chelle Chapman says:

        IF between you & Dara, this issue cannot get resolved, I would be glad to print & mail the pattern to her. Just let me know.

    This pattern looks great!

    I’m happy to see that this pants pattern is do-able for a beginner sewer such as myself. I think the video help is wonderful. I plan to purchase & sew this pattern with high hopes that I can do it. Thank you so much.

    • Deby Coles says:

      That’s great! I’m really pleased to hear it. Good to hear that you find the video useful too. I’d love to see what you eventually make from the pattern. Perhaps you would be able to share it on Craftsy and link to the pattern. I get so many downloads and rarely get to see the end results! Good luck!

  7. ChiChi says:

    These look so comfy! I really like how they compliment all the ladies’ body types

  8. Kimberlee says:

    Great pants! I love things that are easy to sew and comfortable to wear.

  9. Natalie says:

  10. Looks like a versatile pair of pants, Deby.

  11. Debbie says:

    Looks like a great pattern!!! Wish I had more time to sew though!
    I am co hosting Fluster’s Creative Muster Link Party!! Thanks so much for linking up!

    Does this pattern have side pockets?
    I’ve read all the information on these pants and might of missed the part regarding pockets. Thank you.

    • Deby Coles says:

      No, there isn’t any pockets. I prefer not to have them to make my hips look slimmer! But if you know how to draft a basic in seam pocket you could certainly add some.

  13. Marlene says:

    The pants look good -was wondering what fabric you used or recommend?

    • Deby Coles says:

      I can’t tell you exactly what I used, it was an unmarked remnant. But you should go for a fairly stable knit, like a ponte or similar. Certainly not a t-shirt type of jersey or a very thin and stretchy ITY knit for example. If you had something medium weight, that had some nice drape and movement to it, I think this would look lovely in a wide leg pant, or something a little crisper if you wanted to make them straight leg.
      Sorry I can’t advise further, I don’t get a lot of knit fabric here I can compare, and what does come in is always unmarked.

What do you think?
