In the Folds : Darlow Pants Pattern
The Darlow pants are a cropped, tapered pant full of interesting panel lines and details. They have been designed to give a new spin to the basic pant and can be worn as an easy and casual option or dressed up for a nice evening option.
The pants sit on the natural waist and feature a fly front with zip closure, shaped waistband, in-seam pockets, back pockets and hem facings. The Darlow pants are designed to be quite fitted through the waist and hip, before more volume is added through the leg, for an interesting shape.
Illustrated instruction booklet guides makers through the making process, from selecting fabric, cutting the garment correctly, achieving a beautiful finish and everything in between - ensuring that nothing is left up to guess work and makers will feel supported and guided through the process of making the garment.

Sizes: 10 sizes included in the pattern (A - J, which equates to US sizes 2-20).
*See images for more sizing information and fabric requirements.
Suggested Fabrics: The pattern is compatible with mid to heavy weight woven fabrics. Consider using linen, linen blends, cotton drill/twill, denim or wool. For a softer, more dressy silhouette, consider using midweight silk or similar. Keep in mind that View A has more volume in the thigh / knee area and you may want to use mid-weight fabric (rather than heavy weight fabric) for this reason.
