Fancy some extra help?
The Carrie Trousers pattern is also available as part of our Ultimate Guide to Sewing & Fitting Trousers online class, which comes with both video tutorials as well as photographed written instructions.
For the Carrie Trousers you’ll need a lightweight woven fabric with a lots of drape, in particular rayon and lightweight crepe.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

- printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format)
- fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
- imperial/metric conversion size chart

The Carrie Trousers pattern is either 32 A4 pages, 32 US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop pages.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
