Sizes XS-3XL

These simple, elastic-waist pants are incredibly comfortable.  Easy to sew and easy to wear, they feature a high-rise waist and front pockets with a pocket flap detail that is fun to embellish (add embroidery or buttons!). Make these in a crisp cotton for work, twill for gardening, or soft flannel for lounging.  This pattern is also an ideal ‘first pair of pants’ for sewists.

Suggested fabrics:  Light to medium weight fabrics such as linen, flannel, gabardine, twill, lightweight denim
