#81 Fold-Over Waistband Pants


This is a pants pattern with a fold-over elastic waistband. An optional large side seam pocket is included.

This pattern uses the natural waistline. If you want the pants to sit lower, add a waistline drop value.

The finished width of the folded waistband is 1.25” / 31.75mm by default. You can change this using the waistband depth variable.

The circumference of the pant leg at the hem will be calculated at two times the ankle circumference, if a pant leg circumference is not entered. The pants include a 1” / 25.4mm hem.

This pattern is drafted using the hip measurement only with hip ease added.


All Types & Ages


This pattern includes the feature that allows you to choose the length of the pants. The length ranges from floor length to short (short-shorts are not available on this style). Visit the pants page in the manual to learn more.
