We’re rounding up some of the excellent indie trouser sewing pattern releases that have hit the site in the past few months. There is something for everyone, so you’re bound to find the pair of your dreams. Maybe 2023 will be the year we all make and wear a fabulous pair and trousers?!


Merchant & Mills Quinn Trousers

First up is a pattern that is already making waves since its release just a few weeks ago! The Merchant & Mills Quinn Trousers have been incredibly popular with Fold Liners, who we can only assume, are falling in love (as we did) with all the dreamy details.

The sailor’ inspired wide-leg trousers, feature back welt pockets and front pockets with button openings. There’s also a clever buckle fastening at the back for flexible fitting. Pick medium-weight woven fabrics such as cotton twill, denim, corduroy, light to medium-weight woollens and linen to make your Quinn Trousers.
