Part of the Rome Collection, the Pietra Pants & Shorts are the best of both worlds; a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfort of an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and a hidden waist stay, you’ll never want to take them off.

Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in floor-skimming or cropped length (View A), a slim and tapered leg (View B), or gently flared shorts (View C).

SUGGESTED FABRIC

This pattern can be made with a variety of fabrics depending on the desired effect. For a more defined shape, use structured wovens such as linen, chambray, or lightweight denim or twill (heavyweight wovens may create too much volume at the elastic waist). For a swishy, glamorous look, use rayon challis, tencel, or silk.

    I bought this pattern for a Sew Along with The Studio at Number 30. The pattern was really easy to read and understand, the instructions are in the form of a little booklet with lots off added hints and tips for when you are making the pants up.

    It was the first pair of trousers that I have attempted to make and I love them.

    I would highly recommend this pattern to anyone that wants to make a fabulously comfy pair of trousers. I am going to make the shorts next, in time for summer.
