Finished Garment Measurements:
See chart in images.
Please note, these pants are designed to sit between the waist and hip and have a slight drop crotch.
If your hip measurement falls in a larger size group than your high hip/waistband measurement, it is recommended to cut the larger size as the pants are pull on (no zip or button openings). You can cut the elastic to the smaller size to compensate.
This is quite a relaxed fit pant. If you prefer a slimmer fit, it is recommended to go down a size. Please consult the Finished Garment Measurements to check the amount of ease on your size.
It is always recommended to sew a toile when first trying out the pattern.
Main fabric- Medium to heavy weight linen, linen blends, tencel, medium weight cottons and similar woven fabrics

If you’re using a patterned fabric with a repeat that you’d like to match, you may need more fabric than what is suggested above. Use your discretion.
Ensure your fabric is washed and pre-shrunk before cutting.
