Description

The pattern:
The ‘Arden Pants’ designed by Helen’s Closet are everyday high-waisted trousers with loads of versatility. A classic elastic-waist trouser with front and back pockets. Views B and C feature a jogger-style cuff in two different widths. The elastic waistband can be topstitched with a drawstring for a more casual look. We love wearing Arden all day, every day, and we know you will too. We bet you can’t make just one pair!

Sizing:
The pattern comes in hip size 84 – 148cm.

Sewing Level:
This course is aimed at advanced beginner sewists. Students should be familiar with a sewing machine and have sewn a few simple garments.
