Free Gift

  • $32.00 $3200

Installments by   available from $100 More info




The Darlow pants are a cropped, tapered pant full of interesting panel lines and details. They have been designed to give a new spin to the basic pant and can be worn as an easy and casual option or dressed up for a nice evening option.

The pants sit on the natural waist and feature a fly front with zip closure, shaped waistband, in-seam pockets, back pockets and hem facings. The Darlow pants are designed to be quite fitted through the waist and hip, before more volume is added through the leg, for an interesting shape.

View A has slightly more volume through the leg than View B, and features patch pockets, while View B has back welt pockets. Both comprise a number of interesting shaped panel lines that encourage a unique shape and an interesting experience. Some of the photographs have the panel lines drawn on, so that you can get a better idea of how the panel lines work on the body.

The Darlow pants are beautifully designed and carefully drafted to include many interesting details, to make this a very enjoyable sew for confident sewers. The pattern comes with fully illustrated instructions to hold your hand every step of the way.

Suggested Fabrics:

The pattern is compatible with mid to heavyweight woven fabrics.

Consider using: linen, linen blends, cotton drill/twill, denim or wool. For a softer, more dressy silhouette, consider using midweight silk or similar. Keep in mind that View A has more volume in the thigh/knee area and you may want to use mid-weight fabric (rather than heavyweight fabric) for this reason.

Fabric requirements and finished garment measurements can be found here.

Notions - Both Views:

  • Coordinating thread
  • 1 x 15cm (6in) trouser zip (use a standard dress zip if you are using lightweight fabric)
  • 1 x 20mm (¾in) button
  • 2 x medium pant hooks (no wider than 12mm / ½in)
  • 0.5m (0.5yds) x Light to mid-weight fusible interfacing (depending on your fabric choice)
  • Optional: For inner waistband - 1m (1.1 yd) x 32mm (1¼ in) single-fold bias tape

Sizing: 

The pattern is available in 10 sizes (A - J, which equates to Australian sizes 6-24). For more information about sizing, please visit the Sizing Chart.

The pattern comes with a FIT KIT - an added document that goes through common fit issues and how to make the adjustment on the Darlow pants. You can download a copy of the FIT KIT here (a copy will also come with your pattern).

Patterns are drafted for height of 170cm (5'7") and include a lengthen / shorten line so you can make adjustments to suit your height.

Fabric requirements and finished garment measurements can be found here.

Difficulty:

The pattern is placed at a Level 3 (out of 5) on the In the Folds pattern skill scale, which means you should be confident using sewing patterns and can handle basic pattern alterations to achieve a good fit.

By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: fitting pants, sewing a fly front, sewing pockets (patch or welt - depending on the style you choose to make), piecing panels together, working with curved seams and attaching a waistband.

Fantastic service

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.

Great service. High quality fabric.

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.
