Pietra Pants & Shorts Sewing Pattern
Installments by available from $100 More info
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)

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.

I received the sweater knit this week and have already made it up into some super comfy True Bias Hudson pant. The quality is top notch and delivery was quick considering #covid19 issues. Thanks also for the little swatches, it’s great to feel the fabric before purchasing.
I have recently bought online some denim, pattern and zip etc to suit making myself some jeans. I had no idea of what quality to expect as my purchase was sight unseen. Not only is the denim a fantastic quality fabric, my order arrived within a couple of days. I was pleased with my purchase and doubly pleased that I supported a local supplier too. Well done Maaidesign.
The linen is beautiful. Service is great. Packaging is kept to a minimum and where it is used it’s environmentally responsible. I’ll be back.
I am very happy with my purchase. I ordered my patterns during the bushfire crisis in Victoria. Maaike emailed me to advise that there could be a delay in delivery due to the
fires. She responded to my inquiry very quickly and made me feel that my purchase was important to her.
When my parcel arrived I was very impressed with the little personal touches. I also received a lovely gift that I have been using. I will definitely order through Maaidedesigns again.
Love my lovely green denim and can't wait to make a pair of Dawn jeans. Maaike even included an extra 20cm bonus! Thanks Maaike!
