Buy the Portobello Trousers sewing pattern from Nina Lee. Simple and elegant, the high-waisted Portobello Trousers are a cinch to make and work in a variety of fabrics for year-round comfort. Make them in a lightweight wool and you’re work-ready in the winter; linens and rayons will keep you cool and effortlessly chic in the summer. The wide-legged silhouette is bang on trend and can be made to evoke the glamour of the ‘40s starlet or the relaxed vibe of a ‘70s bohemian. Pair with fine jumpers, soft blouses or cropped tops. The trousers are constructed with front pleats and back darts, and a centre-back concealed zip (avoiding any tricky fly construction!), along with the all-important in-seam pockets.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PAPER (next working day dispatch on orders and FREE UK delivery over £50). This option is only available for sizes 6 – 20. If you would like to purchase sizes 16 – 28, please select the copy shop option. These are the last paper copies of this pattern as it is no longer in print – catch them while you can!

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

What we think: We love a trouser pattern with a simple zip construction, and the loose fitting leg means you’ll have these whipped up in no time!
