I use media fire to hold the free patterns, I don't pay for a media fire account just the free account this means they stay free for you and you may have to view a pop up ad, just close it please don't send me an email complaining about the ad. Simply click the green download button and your download should begin. If you have trouble downloading the pattern send me an email at
I am more than happy to send out the pattern to you, please be nice in your request (seems silly to even ask such a thing but it happens) It may take me a little time to get it out to you but I do my best.
Ok disclaimer (rant) over with and we can move on to the tutorial.
Few tips before we begin, I used a 3/8 inch seam allowance.
Also the pants can be made with almost any fabric but since they get pleated and sewn at the top waist I reccomend a light weight fabric. I used this really light weight chambray denim. (plain cotton for the facing)
There is a tutorial on that here.
(if you make some pants share them in our flickr group we would love to see them!)
