Description: Finally, a modern trouser pattern designed for curvy hips, fuller thighs and a narrow waist! The Thurlow Trousers sit below the waistline, with a slightly flared leg. Pockets in front are subtle slash pockets that won’t add bulk to the hips.
Pattern includes a cute pair of cuffed shorts as well as full-length pants. Wear the shorts cuffed or un-cuffed, with an optional grosgrain ribbon belt.
A great feature of this pattern is the center back extension. Both trousers and shorts have extra-wide seam allowances at center back so they’re easily altered for a custom fit at the waist. Try on your pants when they’re partially sewn, and fit them to your body!
Sizing is proportioned for a pear-shaped figure: smaller waist, larger hips and thighs.
Format: Paper only
Skill Level: Intermediate
Techniques Involved: Fly facing, waistband, cuffs, belt loops, front slash pockets, back welt pockets.
