Buy the Écorce Trousers and Capri Pants sewing pattern from Camimade. Écorce is a high-waisted and semi-fitted trousers and capri pants pattern. It closes with a fly front and a hidden button and hook and bar inside the waistband. A welt pocket can be added at the back for a more finished look. The legs are marked with a permanent fold at the front, making these trousers ideal for a work wear outfit. The seams at the back of the legs follow your shape perfectly and end with vents at the bottom, a small detail that makes a big difference.

Écorce is a simple and chic trousers pattern that can be worn with a t-shirt and sneakers for a relaxed look or with a blouse and heels for a more elegant or office look.
