The Ultimate Trousers are an advanced beginner level sewing pattern. We recommend you have experience making a couple of garments, but there’s no need to have made trousers before.
Fancy some extra help?
The Ultimate 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.
As well as our online class, extra help can also be found in our Ultimate Trousers Sewalong on our blog!
We recommend a medium to heavy weight woven fabric such as cotton, wool, crepe or denim for this pattern. Anything with a small amount of stretch (around 3%) will make for an extra comfy fit. For a loose, summery look you could also try rayon or other lightweight drapey fabric. You will also need a 9″ invisible zip. Check our online shop selection for fabrics we’ve picked specifically for the pattern.
The Ultimate Trousers sewing pattern comes in UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home. Simply download, print, 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 2 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A DOWNLOADABLE PATTERN WHICH YOU HAVE TO PRINT AT HOME. At the end of the checkout process you will receive an email with the link to your pattern and instructions.
