Pietra Pants & Shorts Sewing Pattern
The Pietra Pants & Shorts are the best of both worlds; a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfort of an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and a hidden waist stay, you’ll never want to take them off.
Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in floor-skimming or cropped length (View A), a slim and tapered leg (View B), or gently flared shorts (View C).
Sewing level: Advanced beginner
Sizes: 0 - 20 (see the sizing chart here)
Finished measurements: See complete final measurements here
This pattern can be made with a variety of fabrics depending on the desired effect. For a more defined shape, use structured wovens such as linen, chambray, or lightweight denim or twill (heavyweight wovens may create too much volume at the elastic waist). For a swishy, glamorous look, use rayon challis, Tencel, or silk.

The bamboo jersey I purchased is beautiful quality. Malik’s is also very warm in her communications
My cuff ribbing arrived fast and will packaged. It is lovely and exactly what I expected. I am looking forward to sewing with it.
I am also loving my FibreMood magazines. I have not come across this magazine before and have already identified so many things I want to make.
Bought ribbing and a skirt pattern .Both arrived in 2 days . Top quality ribbing . Great service
I ordered a pattern, and some labels for my stitching and crafting projects, plus being unfamiliar with the products on offer, several short lengths of a variety of fabrics for small items. In one word.
So happy I made my order.
The pattern is clearly written and easy to use. I love culottes and thrilled to find this pattern.
The gorgeous colours and luxurious feel of the jersey fabrics I chose are beyond words. Won't be long before my next order.
Excellent communication and rapid delivery of my order. Thank you so much.
Beautiful, rich colours, and very prompt delivery!
