The Pleat pants kids
Pants that will leave children free to move.
Inspired by the traditional pants worn by Thai fisherman, but with a modern silhouette, Pleat is the perfect summer pattern, being both airy and comfortable. Its front pleat acts as a gusset and offers a wide range of motion that will allow children to run, dance, and roll freely. It is a straight-legged, high-waisted (sitting right below the belly button) pant with a slightly cropped leg. It can be sewn with or without a front pocket. Pleat is an ideal pattern for motivated beginners- having no side seams and being made up of only 3 pattern pieces (for the view without pockets).
Tip: By cutting out pattern piece A twice, you can make a simple elastic waist pair of pants without the front wrap detail.
