Buy the Chi-Town Chinos sewing pattern from Alina Sewing and Design Co. This shorts and skirt pattern is inspired by the classic relaxed pant silhouette commonly referred to today as chinos. The Chi-Town Chinos pattern is mid-rise, easy-fitting and straight through the hip and leg. The waistband is faced, maintaining a clean finish. With four different back pocket options, a shorts option, a skirt option, and options to lengthen or shorten both, this pattern is a handmade summer wardrobe staple.

Note: Two expansion packs (sold separately) are available for the Chi-Town Chinos. Use the Chi-Town Chinos pattern plus Expansion Pack No. 1 to make fitted, knee-length shorts with back welt pockets. Use the Chi-Town Chinos pattern plus Expansion Pack No. 2 to make semi-fitted, full-length pants with back welt pockets.
