Description

Écorce is a high waisted and semi-fitted trousers and Capri pants pattern. It covers UK sizes 6 to 20, US sizes 2 to 16 and EU sizes 34 to 48.

It closes with a fly front and with a hidden button and hook and bar inside the waistband. A welt pocket can be added at the back for a more finished look. Legs are marked with a permanent fold at the front, making these trousers ideal for a work wear outfit. The seams at the back of the legs follow your shapes perfectly and end with vents at the bottom, a small detail that makes a big difference.

Écorce is a simple and chic trousers pattern that can either be worn with a t-shirt and sneakers for a relaxed look or with a blouse and heels for a more elegant and work wear look.

Écorce is for intermediate level. It includes a fly front zip and a waistband. Optionally for the most daring, a welt pocket can be sewn at the back.

I can be sewn in medium weight fabrics such as: denim, cotton twill, gabardine, suiting fabric, tartan, corduroy. Écorce being semi-fitted trousers, prefer a fabric with a little bit of stretch, although it is not mandatory. In any case, we advise you to make a toile first in order to test the fit. Choose a fabric that presses well in order to make permanent folds at the front.

The blue sample displayed on this page is made in denim and the green one is made in cotton twill, both without stretch.
