Sewing pattern - Children's pants BASIC (sizes 80–176)
The pattern for kids' pants BASIC is constructed in a professional program for clothing pattern development and it is available in sizes 80–176 (find size charts in the gallery).
This universal pants pattern can be used to make simple lightweight pants (e.g. from a light cotton canvas), somewhat formal pants (e.g. from corduroy), or, of course, children's sports pants (e.g. from softshell).
Because the pattern is designed for woven fabrics - inelastic materials - it is "wider" so that kids can move, sit, play, and run comfortably.

There are three versions of this pattern (you will receive all of them after purchase):
-1st version (one size view) – PDF A4 – pattern in individual sizes with seam allowances outlined– all individual sizes of the pattern (pattern of each size shows sewing lines and seam allowances are outlined too).
-2nd version (classic view) – PDF A4 pattern showing all sizes without seam allowances - all sizes are outlined “in one picture”(each in its own color) without seam allowances.
-3rd version (classic view) – PDF A0 pattern showing all sizes without seam allowances. This large-format pattern does not need to be glued together. You can print it on a home or office plotter or in one of the many copy centers.
-You can choose what works best for you. The advantage of the classic view (where all the sizes are shown) is that you can easily customize your pattern to fit body types in between the chart sizes. One size view saves time during preparation - you do not have to think where and how much to add for the seams, because everything is already there.
