OUR PATTERNS SEWING FOR ADULTS

INTRODUCING THE DANI SHORT & PANT

September 8, 2021

I am so excited to be introducing our newest pattern to you, the Dani short and pant. That Dani has an elastic waist, inseam and rear pockets, a small paperbag waist, and a cuff.

Views A and C are shorts with an approximate 3 inch inseam, while views B and D are pants with an approximate 27.5″ inseam.

Views A and B use a zip fly construction with two small buttons at the waist. These views are a bit more difficult and are best sewn up by the intermediate sewist.

Views C and D use a simple pull on, full elastic waist construction that is perfect for the beginner sewist or as a way to check fit before moving on to the fly option.

We will be going over fabric and notions more thoroughly in a future post, but for now, just know that this pattern is perfect for medium weight non stretch wovens. All of our samples are sewn up in linen rayon blends, but we also think that cottons and twills would work great. Just avoid any wovens that are too thick or rigid as they will create a lot of extra bulk at the gathered waistline.

The Dani is currently offered in PDF only (although we hope to print it soon.). It comes in two size ranges. You can choose between sizes 0-18 and sizes 14-32. Check out our listings to see both body and finished measurements to choose your size.

We will have a full sewalong in a couple of weeks if you would like help sewing it up. In the meantime, you can purchase the Dani here on sale through Sunday, Sept. 19th (no code needed).

    I really like the new pattern. I’m a size 16. Do both size ranges come included with purchase? How do you know which one to buy if not?

      You do have to choose which size range is best for you. The 14-30 has a slightly more curvy proportion between the waist and hip. Just choose which one correlates best with your measurements.
