Our Worker Trousers are the ultimate everyday trousers. Fitted on the hips with a slight balloon in the leg for volume & comfort. Our PDF Pattern comes with in depth written instructions, an A4 tile copy, US Letter tiles and an A0 version.
Skill level: Intermediate sewers (you will need extra ambition and focus for the fly area)
Sizing: Sizes 4 - 20 are included in this pattern. Our sizes run true to UK sizing - for full sizing details see below in the drop down menu.
Fit notes: These trousers are slightly lower on the high waisted spectrum, sitting comfortably above the hip but not too high up the waist. They are cut to fit neatly on the body & hips and then flare slightly on the thigh and taper in again at the ankle.
Construction techniques: Concealed button fly or zip fly with binding detailing, side pockets, patch pockets, waistband & belt loops.
Suitable fabrics: These trousers work well in mid-heavy weight denims and twills.
Materials list: Self fabric, fabric for pocket bags & binding - a 40cm strip of lightweight cotton (any width of fabric), 4 x big buttons (around 2.5-3cm) or 1 x big button and 15cm zip, thread, about 40cm of good quality fusing

You will receive both an A4, A0 & US Letter size digital pattern along with step by step sewing instructions. You can either print your pattern at home on an A4 printer or send the A0 digital copy to a printing shop (there are many that do this for a very reasonable price). If you decide to print in A4 you will need to piece the tiles together to make one huge page. There is a guide on how to do this included in the instructions.
