Pietra Pants and Shorts
Closet Core Patterns
Buy the Pietra Pants and Shorts sewing pattern from Closet Core Patterns. Part of the Rome Collection, the Pietra Pants and Shorts are the best of both worlds: a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfort of an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and a hidden waist stay, you’ll never want to take them off.
Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in either a floor-skimming or cropped length (View A), a slim and tapered leg (View B), or gently flared shorts (View C).
This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following format:
– PAPER (next working day dispatch on orders and FREE UK delivery over £50)
Suggested fabrics: This pattern can be made with a variety of fabrics depending on the desired effect. For a more defined shape, use structured wovens such as linen, chambray, or lightweight denim or twill (heavyweight wovens may create too much volume at the elastic waist). For a swishy, glamorous look, use rayon challis, Tencel, or silk.
