Buy the Arthur Pants sewing pattern from Sew Liberated. This whimsical pant reimagines a wardrobe staple: casual pants with a uniquely fun shape.

A collaboration with designer Debra Weiss of Specks & Keepings, the Arthur Pants combine the classic comfort of wide-legged pants with dramatically shaped side seams and a tapered hem. The fit is relaxed, with plenty of ease, a high waist, a lowered crotch, and roomy pockets. View A has a zipper fly with an elastic back waist. View B has a full elastic waist.

Versatile and appropriate to any season, the Arthur Pants will become a key part of your sustainable wardrobe. They pair well with the Strata Top, or underneath a Hinterland or Metamorphic Dress.

Suggested fabrics: The Arthur Pants are designed for mid-weight woven fabrics, such as linen, gabardine, silk noil, lightweight twill, or cotton chambray. If you make the elastic waist version, you can also choose knit fabrics, such as French terry, interlock, or mid-weight jersey.

Do not choose fabrics that have significant drape. You want enough body to support the shape of the pant leg.
