Pattern Details

Note: The Amber Trousers is a PDF pattern. You will receive a digital file, to be printed at home or at a copyshop.

If you were looking for the perfect pair of summer pants, you’ve found them! The Amber Trousers will keep you cool and stylish this season. The goal was to create a pair of summer trousers that flow and are quick to sew, but without an elastic waistband. The Amber Trousers have a fitted yoke on the front and back, to keep that waist-to-hip area smooth. The V-shape of the yokes lend a beautiful feminine touch. Below that, the trouser legs flow out with an inverted box pleat to give your legs room to breathe. The slash pockets are simple to sew and roomy enough to actually be useful. The trousers close with a blind zipper at the side seam.

This pattern comes with two main views: a tapered leg and a wide pant leg. The tapered leg ends just below the ankle, the wide leg ends at the heel. With these two options you have the possibility to make multiple variations with a very different look, depending on the fabric you choose. View A is perfect in a casual fun printed rayon, or go for silk if you want to take it up a notch. View B can be made in a chique palazzo-style medium weight linen for instance, or in a rayon challis or crepe for a breezy beach vibe.

The model in the photos is 5’5″ and wears a size 5.

Fabric and Supplies

Recommended Fabric

Light to medium weight stable woven fabrics work best for both views. As always, with your fabric you can decide what kind of look you want. View A can be a breezy summer trouser in a rayon challis or poly fabric with a similar drape. Silk or crepe would give a wonderful luxurious look.

View B can be just as breezy in a lightweight fabric or you could go for a palazzo style, using fabrics with less drape like medium weight linen and cotton.

Choose a fusible interfacing with the same weight and drape as your fabric.
