Plan B anna evers DIY Skinny leg pant materials


  • Sewing machine
  • Cotton fabric with a minimum of 2% elastane (spandex) (in this case I chose a floral print)
  • Fabric scissors
  • Interlining
  • Invisible Zipper
  • Pins
  • Free Pattern you can download HERE

* It’s VERY important that you choose a fabric with spandex, it will be much easier to move and it will fit your figure much better than a stiff fabric.

1. Place your fabric folded in half and place the patterns “straight” (with the line that the pattern has parallel to the edge of the fabric).

2. Ensure the pattern with pins and cut with 1 cm margin all around it. (This pattern is a size S-M, if you’re a size XS cuts with no margin, if you are a size L cut with 2cm margin) add 1cm for each size more.

3. Marc the waist darts (tucks) first, before removing the pattern.

4. Sew the tucks and fold towards the center of your back.

5. Sew the sides together. Join front leg with back leg at the sides.

* Finish the edges with an overlock, if you don’t have an overlock simply do a zig-zag with your sewing machine to finish the edges so the fabric doesn’t fray.

6. Fix the invisible zipper on the left side or in the center of your back. Remember that this type of zipper is sewn with a special sewing machine foot and you have to sew the zipper open.

* If you’re not quite sure sewing the zipper,  sew first by hand with loose stitches to secure it to the fabric so it wont move when sewing with the machine.

7. Sew the inner leg up to the curve. You will have two tubes.

8. Enter one leg in the other leg . And sew the inseam. (from what would be the end of your spine, through the crotch and ending below your navel)

* Before proceeding, you must try the pants to see if you need to sew more in or rectify.

13. Finally sew all the waistband on junction seam of the waistband to the pants. Then you just have to try on the pants to decide the length and bend the excess fabric inwards and machine or hand sew the hem of your skinny leg pants.

      Hola Cecilia, Lo que tienes que hacer es agregar 1cm en los costados del pantalón (en el lateral, en la entrepierna y en el tiro) es decir, no agregues en el largo y en el alto. Estos pantalones son entre una talla S y M.. si eres una talla L agrega 1cm, si eres una XL agrega 2cm… y así sucesivamente. Si eres más de una XXL y eres un poco alta también recuerda agregar mas de largo… es mejor poner mas que menos, ya que antes de terminarlo siempre le puedes quitar. Espero esto te aclare un poco más. MUCHA SUERTE, muestranos tus resultados por twitter o FB… me haría mucha ilusión!!! *recuerda que este patrón es para tejido con elastano! besos

    Tx for the pattern and tute. I actually have recently been looking for a simple skinny leg pants pattern. The pattern companies seemed to just have over the top, or low riders type of skinny pants. This is great. I look forward to the jacket (blazer) pattern too. You are awesome!

    I love your tutorial, thank you so much for posting it. I also adore the pattern of the fabric you used. I was wondering if you knew of a online retailer that sells fabric with 2% elastic? I have been trying to find some but it’s been a little difficult.

  7. L.A.

    Hi, Thanks for this pattern. I really want to try it. Just to confirm, when I go to print it it says the total measurements of the document are 41.32 x 46.78 inches. Is that correct? I don’t want to print it out just to find out it’s a little too big or too small…

    1. annaevers Post author

      Hi, Yes the correct pattern measurements of the document is 100cm x 115cm in inches that will be 39.37 x 45.27 (size of the paper)
      hope this helps 🙂

  8. Nazli

    Hi Anna – i would really like to try this pattern out, could you please assist me in printing this pattern with a printer that uses A4 pages. PS love your pant love your blog. 🙂

    1. annaevers Post author

      Hi Nazli!! Here the answer our lovely reader Loanna helped us with:

      Hey! I printed it on my home printer. I used the option “poster” so I have it in pieces and I merged them with tape. I don’t know if all the printers have this option.
      I hope this helps.

      Thank you loves!

      Hola Fatima, he mirado el link y parece funcionar bien… solo tienes que clickar en la palabra descarga “AQUI” y te llevara a otra ventana donde podrás ver el patron en pequeño y vuelve a hacer click sobre el botón azul a la derecha que pone descargar o download. Si no funciona o no lo visualizas bien… puede que sea que no uses chrome o safari… intenta con estos 🙂

    Just made these and the pattern was almost right on for my body! I had to shorten the legs a smidge, and as indicated in the directions I played around with the fit in the waist and crotch before adding the waistband. Wish I’d had fabric with a bit more stretch in it, but to test it out I just used some dark denim with a small amount of stretch that I picked up at a thrift store. This means they aren’t as cute as your floral pair, so I’m fairly sure I’ll be doing some bleach tie dyeing or making them polka dot pants or hearts or something. Thank you for the pattern, it’s my first time sewing anything from a pattern and I’m very pleased with the result!

    1. annaevers Post author

      Hi Andrea!! I’m so happy you liked trying out sewing one of my patterns!! I’m so happy they had a good fit! 😉 If you like feel free to share a picture of your creation on the facebook page of the blog! It will make me so happy!!! 😀

  10. Ayida

    Hi Anna, I love the fact that you made such a simple pattern for something a lot of us DIY/sewing fashionistas would love to make! And I’ve finally found some fabric I can make them with 🙂 But I do have one question, what do you mean at step 3 where it says ‘Brand notch clips back so they could sew pants.’? Can’t figure it out 🙂

    1. annaevers Post author

      Hi Ayida!!! I’m so happy you like this!! Sorry about that, just saw it was a misspelling wen I made it on the translator from spanish… Now it’s corrected 😉 Thanks for telling me! 🙂 Step 3 says: “Marc the waist darts (tucks) first, before removing the pattern.”

    hola anna, gracias por compartir, tu tutorial aclara todas las dudas muy bueno, digo excelente, no entiendo el patron como debo imprimirlo para llevarlo a tamano escala, gracias de antemano, gracias mille

    1. annaevers Post author

      Hola Yoyo, tienes que imprimirlo en una impresora de gran formato. Es decir, que imprima paginas de 1m de ancho mínimo. (solo tienes que guardar el archivo en un pen y llevarlo a imprimir a una copisteria 😉

  13. Katie C.

    Hola Anna! A mí me encanta este patrón. Muchísimas gracias por compartirlo. ¿Por favor me puede explicar en más detalle cómo se forma la cinturilla? 🙂


    1. annaevers Post author

      Hola Katie! cuando tengas la cinturilla cortada debes de ponerla lado bueno del pantalón con lado bueno de la cinturilla. coses con 1 cm de margen y giras el sobrante hacia detrás. doblas hacia adentro 1 cm de costura y vuelves a coser y las esquinas también. de esta forma te queda toda pareja. 🙂

  14. Remi

    Is there any way I’d still be able to download the pattern? It says it’s been disabled. Thanks so much!!!

    1. annaevers Post author

      Hi Remi! I’m so sorry for the pattern 🙁 I’m having difficulties with my server at the moment, I can’t fix the problem fast because I’m out of Barcelona and don’t have my files on me… I’m working on fixing the problem as fast as I can, I will let you know as soon as the pattern is working again… sorry again for any inconvenience 🙂

  15. Carmela Wilkins

    Hi again! I wanted to know what would be the best solution to a mistake I made. I sewed both legs up already and forgot to insert the zipper, I can’t undo the threading because the fabric itself would ruin, is there another part of the trousers where it would also be suitable for me to insert the zipper? ( crotch area, front on the thigh…?)With the change in zipper location I will adjust the waistband accordingly. Thank you!

  16. Moni

    Hola Anna,! Genial el tutorial y el patrón. Muchas gracias!
    Yo creo que en mi impresora se puede hacer con la opción de impresión “Póster”. Te divide el pdf en 20 folios, y dice que en total las medidas son 105×118 cm. Creo que así me saldrá bien. Y me evito tener que ir a una copistería.
    Un saludo!

  17. cami

    me encanta! pero no tengo la menor idea de como podría imprimirlo en tamaño real, porque no encuentro las medidas en cms. ayuda please!! 🙂

  18. idalia

    Ke linda eres ….. Y todo lo que hace….. Gracias x compartir con nosotros ..

    . Lo intentaré espero y me salga bello. Como Ati.. Saludos desde Lima perú….

  19. Karla C

    Hi Anna,

    Your blog and DIY tutorials are very inspirational, thank you for sharing. I have a question about the pattern before I cut, should it be placed on the right side of the fabric, as in the photo? Thanks again.

    1. annaevers Post author

      Hi Karla!!! Thank you!!!! I would say yes, Karla. Because that way you will know were the print will go… For example: “maybe you don’t want a big rose to end right on your chest” 😉 Good luck cutting!

  20. karen

    Thanks for the pattern! I want to try it. I am wondering if you mean “interfacing” rather than “interlining” at the beginning with the supply list and “fleece” at the waistband instructions.
