Sidewinder Trousers PDF

The Sewing Revival

Buy the Sidewinder Trousers sewing pattern from The Sewing Revival. A simply constructed pant with a side seam that wraps the leg in diagonal line to flatter and streamline. The angled seam encompasses the front internal pocket. The Sidewinder pants are pull on, with minimal back gather and easily constructed without buttons, zips or fastenings.

With a lightly tapered leg, these pants are designed to be worn just above the ankle with either a standard, fold up or deep gathered hem. The Sidewinders look just as flattering in the full length trouser option.

A perfect pattern for your first Trousers – ideal for Confident beginners.
Fold under or gathered hem in 7/8 or full length.
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Confident Beginner (3/10).
The Sidewinder pants can be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams.
Designed for mid weight WOVEN fabrics, the Sidewinder Pants work well in polyester, viscose, tencel, linen and cotton blends. The pattern also has good results in a light weight wool blend suiting for colder temperatures. Keep in mind that a mid weight fabric that drapes well is preferred. If the fabric is too heavy or stiff the back waist gather will not flatter.
Patterned fabric – The side seam is a key design feature and important to keep in mind when choosing your fabric. Jacquards, small prints and plain (block colour) are the easiest to sew. Plaids also look good (refer sample images) but are best matched at the side seam (intermediate sewers will find this easy enough and there is a tutorial to help here).

The PDF pattern is available in sizes XS – 2XL with 2 different purchasing options: (UK 10-20)

    5 out of 5 these are most definitely secret-pyjamas!


    I’ve made two pairs of the Sidewinder pants in quick succession because the first pair were so quick, easy and comfy. Their USP is the diagonal side seam which I opted to top-stitch on my second pair as a way to highlight the detail. They have several length/hem options too, I’ve made both mine with turn-ups but I’ll make a pair with elasticated cuffs very soon (I hope) they also have in-seam pockets and a half-elasticated waistband so all-in-all they are both stylish and comfy enough to eat a big dinner without busting any buttons! Plus they don’t take a ton of fabric so what’s not to like? I wrote a full review with more photos over on my blog if you’re interested at
