Parent&child - Pleat
The fun of a matchy-matchy outfit only lasts a few years, don't waste time!
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. 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.
All the prototypes were sewn in an organic cotton poplin and home dyed with vegetable dyes except for theyellow linen version which was sewn in a linen grown and woven in France from Cousu bio. To learn more about the dyes used, please click here.
