Pleat asymetrical pants

Pleat, the not so basic pants

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. 


The patchwork Pleats pants are made and modeled by Romy from @sewlike. All other prototypes were sewn in an organic cotton poplin and home dyed with vegetable dyes except for the gray linen version which was sewn in a linen grown and woven in France from Cousu bio.
