Trousers and shorts sewing patterns

As a mainstay in our daily wardrobes, pants and shorts look good with casual tops, shirts or formal blouses. Our pants patterns come in a variety of styles with customisation options for any home sewist. There are creative ways to style your sewing patterns for pants. If you need pants for work, consider tailoring a narrow leg that barely touches the ankle bone for a more modern and professional look. A wide leg works just as well, covering the shoe. Meanwhile, a comfortable and practical pair for athleisure offers daily use, like joggers and pull-on sweat pants whether you’re hitting the gym, doing groceries or simply chilling at home. Palazzo pants, bootcut and cropped pants are also interesting and wearable pattern shapes you can wear for casual, formal and special events or occasions. For all your sewing pattern needs, Sewdirect’s got you covered. With multi-sized pattern brands, you can alter and customise according to the perfect fit. Here are some of the other sought-after sewing patterns for pants:
  • Flared pants patterns
  • Harem pants patterns
  • Wide leg pants patterns
And if you’re looking for sewing patterns for shorts, apart from our assorted selection of women’s and girl’s shorts patterns, we also have a collection of stylish and men’s and boy’s shorts patterns, too.


Is it possible to adjust the measurements?

Yes. All our sewing patterns for pants are multi-sized which helps the home sewer to achieve a perfect fit. We recommend checking actual body measurements before choosing your size and cutting out your garment.

I have a particular style in mind; so can I customise the sewing pattern?

All our pants and shorts patterns come with several design variations, so you can adapt, alter, or customise to create your perfect look.

With our patterns, you’re only limited by your imagination, and we always love seeing what you can come up with.

As a beginner, will it be difficult for me to sew pants or shorts patterns?

All our patterns come with easy-to-follow instructions. Some designs are more complex than others and require careful fitting to ensure a flattering look. If you are a complete beginner, we recommend starting your sewing journey with an easy to sew pattern. Many patterns show a sewing skill rating, so choose a design that is ‘Easy’ or ‘Very Easy’. More experienced sewers will enjoy the challenge of ‘Advanced’ sewing skill patterns.

If you’re looking to start slowly, we have a range of patterns specifically designed for beginners. They’ll give you the skills you need to develop from a novice to expert seamstress in no time. All our beginner patterns are clearly marked.
