Terra pants by Pattern Fantastique! Actually not a newly launched pattern, but I got more interested in it after seeing multiple versions around the internet.
At first sight, it is a pattern classic pleated pants. But the more I look at it, the more I understand the great shape of this pattern. The legs are wide with almost a cocoon shape. These pants are slouchy but not too exaggerated. The pants are supposed to wear with the waistband sits lower at the front and higher at the back. If you choose a size down, these pants become high-waisted like a 50’s style pants.
I made mine mid-rise waisted in size 8. I suddenly had the urge to have a green pants so I bought 2 meters of green cotton twill.
The drafting and instructions are very well-done! I especially like the instructions for installing the front pockets and waistband. The result is very neat and minimizing bulks. There are options for back pockets and cuffed or hemmed legs. The only alteration I made was shortening the legs about 7 cm (my height is 4’11” / 150 cm).
I didn’t think that I’d like the finished result so much. The shape is great and the pants are so comfortable!
