(or pants)

With Sewing Life Magazine 5 you get a pattern for stylish City Shorts, or pants, to be made in several variations, in many types of fabric and in either a classic men’s-wear look with welt pockets or a more casual look with patch pockets and a folded cuff.

If you don’t like shorts, you can easily lengthen the pattern to make culottes or ankle-length wide legged pants – for an equally great look!

The patterns come in sizes 34 – 54.

In the magazine, we have articles on pants fitting for beginners, design changes, style, book review,  and many efficient - and easy - methods for sewing, among other things, welt pockets and zip flies. Step-by-step!

You can also buy Issue 5 as a single issue for 15 USD.
