The Arenite Pants are the luxuriously deep-pocketed, slouchy pants of your dreams. The pattern includes three leg finishing options – a knit cuff, an elasticated woven cuff, or a dressier hem. The Arenite Pants blend cozy and chic, for a piece that can slip into any wardrobe, perfect for styling with tees, sweaters, and jackets, for relaxing at home, running errands, or dressed up for evenings out. They’re our new favorite pants, and we hope they’ll be yours too!
Learn to sew French seams, flat-felled seams and a comfortable, non-twist elastic waistband for a made-to-last, beautifully crafted wardrobe staple. This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners. It is the perfect project for those new to sewing pants, as the fit is very forgiving.
Suggested fabrics: The Arenite Pants is designed for woven fabrics, with the exception of the knit cuff option. For the main pant, look for rayon challis, tencel twill, or silk noil. The essential characteristic of the woven fabric is fantastic drape.
