Free Pattern Friday 25/3/22 - Peppermint Magazine: Wide Legged Trousers by In The Folds

Mar 25 2022 Tags: Free Sewing Pattern, PDF Patterns, PDF Sewing Pattern

This week's free pattern was inspired by these beautiful Dashwood Studio corduroys that arrived in the shop recently, in both wine & marine colourways.

They're 100% cotton & 21 wale, (corduroy's wale count per inch can vary from 1.5 to 21. The lower the number, the thicker the width of the ridges, so this is the finest that you can get) & a lovely quality as you'd expect from Dashwood Studio.

I thought that the Wide Leg Pants by In the Folds which is available from the Peppermint Magazine website would be the perfect match for a Spring time outfit, as they're slightly cropped but will keep you warm when we get the inevitable chilly, blustery days!

The wide leg pants are high-waisted with a fly front, curved front slash pockets, a shaped waistband & darts in the back. They're drafted to be fitted around the waist & hip before dropping into a wide, slightly cropped leg.

The pattern has 10 sizes which range from a 24" waist & 33" hip to a 45" waist to 54" hip and requires between 2 & 2.5 metres of fabric.

Because they are quite fitted, I'd recommend making a toile first. We have calico in the shop or you could use some fabric that you're not too bothered about or even an old duvet cover or sheet!

If you're on Instagram, check out the hashtag #peppermintwidelegpants, there are nearly 2000 tags and that way you'll get a good idea of how they fit on different bodies. 
Other alternatives to the corduroy are bottom weight non-stretch wovens such as  this slate grey cotton twill  or our ever popular 8oz washed denim.
  
If you're thinking of summer, we've got some lovely linens available such as this fabulous Coral John Louden Enzyme Washed Linen or the more subtle sand coloured Ramie which is a great alternative to linen which is made from nettles! 
  
We've also got lots of other corduroys in some rather fabulous prints if you fancy going wild!
 
Don't forget that we can print the A0 pattern for you, if you don't fancy sticking tonnes of A4 sheets together & although the pattern is free from Peppermint magazine, they have recently suffered flooding in Brisbane where their offices are based, so if you can afford a couple of AUS $ (equivalent to a quid) to show some sewing love, I'm sure they'd be chuffed to bits!
See you next week with another free pattern.
