Buy the Children’s Pleat Pants sewing pattern from Ready to Sew. Inspired by the traditional pants worn by Thai fisherman but with a modern silhouette, Pleat is the perfect summer pattern, being both airy and comfortable. Its front pleat acts as a gusset and offers a wide range of motion that allows children to run, dance and roll freely. It is a straight-legged, high-waisted (sitting right below the belly button) pant with a slightly cropped leg. It can be sewn with or without a front pocket. Pleat is an ideal pattern for motivated beginners as it has no side seams and is made up of only three pattern pieces (for the view without pockets).

Tip: By cutting pattern piece A twice, you can also make a pair of simple elastic waist pants without the front wrap detail.

A matching women’s version is available here.
