By Closet Core Patterns, Pietra Pants is a paper sewing pattern.

Garment Details: 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).

Sizing: This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 0–20.  Sizing and finished garment measurements can be found here.

Fabric Suggestions: 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.

Fabric requirements: Fabric requirements can be found here.

Trims required: Matching thread, 2” (50mm) wide elastic, knit or woven (1 yd / 90cm), lightweight non-stretch fusible interfacing (.25 yd / 25cm), marking tool
