Harem Pants

Harem Pants are wonderfully cute, super comfortable, and amazingly quick and easy to sew.

The pattern includes instructions to make both full length harem pants and shorts, and to add knee patches and faux pockets.

These Harem Pants have been described by more than one of my mini testers as ‘the most comfortable thing ever!!’ They are particularly good for children who wear cloth nappies as they have plenty of room in the booty department! But that doesn’t stop them being popular with older children too.

An experienced sewist will easily be able to whip up a pair in under half and hour. If you’re a less experienced sewer then this is the perfect pattern to introduce you to sewing with knits. I include detailed, step by step instructions with lots of helpful diagrams.

An overlocker/serger is useful but not necessary and I include directions for using a regular sewing machine.

This pattern is designed for cotton/lycra jersey or any other light/medium weight knit fabric.

This listing is for 4 downloadable PDF files: Instructions, a print-at-home pattern, a copy shop pattern and a projector pattern.

Print the print-at-home pattern on A4/legal/letter sized paper.

Take the copy shop file to a professional printer to print onto large sheets of paper.

Use the projector file to project the pattern straight onto your fabric.

The measurement charts for all W&W patterns can be found here.

The pattern is created in layers meaning you can print just the layers (sizes) you need.

For a simple, quick-sew t-shirt to match try the Explorer Raglan.

    One of my favourite patterns! It’s so quick that I usually whip one up just before we leave the house for a kid’s birthday party. The fit is always perfect with a little growing room, I only had to adjust the length of the legs for my son who is very wide but also very short. It’s my daughter’s favourite PJs, she has a few in french terry and jersey too, works great with both. I love making them, they’re so easy and satisfying, you can literally finish one before your coffee gets cold!

    Love these Harem pants. I’ve added the optional frill to a couple of baby ones and they look so cute!

    I love the harem pants for kids in cloth nappies. They are quick to sew and quick to put on and are such a flexible fit.

    I would class my self as a confident beginner. I bought this pattern to make some gifts for friends who were expecting. I used a regular sewing machine. The pattern was easy to print and piece together. The instructions were very clear. Took a bit of time to do the first pair but then once I was familiar with the pattern knocked up 5 more pairs in no time. Very happy with the finished results.

    Such an easy and gorgeous pattern. Both my 3 month old and 2 year old live in harem pants. I’d sewn with woven in the past but making harems for my son 2 years ago was my first experience with stretch fabric. It gave me the confidence to try new things and now I use lots of W&W pattens because the instructions are so good and projector files make cutting a breeze!

    This was the first pattern I tried of WW and I was very impressed. Very easy to follow with simple instructions and photos are fab. The harem’s I made when she was 1 still fit her now )over 2 yrs), they do last long. I still make harems for her. Great for PJ bottoms too.

    These are the perfect pants for cloth nappies! Roomy enough without being oversized, exactly what I had been looking for. In addition, they are super easy and quick to sew!
