Closet Core Patterns (formerly Closet Case Patterns) is a sewing pattern design and education company aimed at giving modern makers the tools and techniques to create the wardrobe of their dreams. Their bilingual sewing patternsstep-by-step tutorials, and obsessively clear online courses are intentionally changing the way you build comfort, joy, and ease into your closet. With a chic, modern aesthetic, their designs will help you create beautiful, functional and infinitely wearable garments you’ll reach for again and again. Each pattern is professionally drafted and graded, and is accompanied by clear, detailed instructions to help you sew your dream wardrobe with confidence.

Part of their 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).

Sizes: 0-20 and 14-30 (PDF) and 0-20 (Print only)

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.
