About the Nanna Pants for your body type
Nanna pants are close fitting slim-line basic pants with narrow legs, for all sizes.
The pants are very basic with no pockets and with a waist facing and zipper at center-back (or at the side seam, if you prefer).
But the basic-ness of the pants make them the perfect slim fitting pants pattern to fit and use as a starting point for a lot of different designs: You can add pockets, change the width of the legs, make a waistband and a lot more. Check back on the blog soon for pattern hacks explained.
This sewing pattern is unique in that it is a pants pattern that was drafted so that it’s easier for you to fit it to your body.
You get two patterns, each for a different body type:
A body type, where the difference between the waist measurement and the hip measurement is more than 25 cm (10” ) – called CURVY. And another body type where the difference between the waist and the hip measurements is less than 25 cm (10 “) – called STRAIGHT.
The pattern comes with detailed step-by-step illustrated instructions, that teaches you sewing, like all Mariadenmark patterns.
The MariaDenmark Nanna Pants pattern does not only have all sizes from size 34-54 included. It has two different size ranges, each customized to the corresponding body types. In short: Those, who have a waist relatively small compared to their hip size (often referred to as A-shaped/pear-shaped, but could also be X/hourglass). And those whose waist measurements are closer to their hip measurements, such as those often referred to as H or straight body types, V body types and even O/apple and hourglass body types with less definition.
Pick your size from the measurement chart and the detailed directions in the instructions.
The pattern is a .PDF download, which you will be able to download right after ordering. You’ll need a recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (get it for free HERE) installed on your computer.
Save the pattern to your computer and open the file in Adobe Acrobat Reader before you print. Browsers sometimes print inaccurately.
You will also receive a confirmation e-mail with links to the downloads (check your spam filter if you don’t see it within 5 minutes). You can then print the pattern on your home printer (A4 or Letter) and easily assemble it following the instructions included in the instructions. You can also bring your A0/copyshop file to be printed at your local copy shop or at places like Patternsy.
This pattern was designed for woven fabric.
You can use fabric with a bit of comfort stretch (such as 2% elastane) to make them more comfortable to wear, but you can also, without problem use fabric without stretch.
The pants shown on the pattern page and in these instructions are made from a cotton fabric with comfort stretch, a no-stretch twill, one in trouser wool and one in garbadine.
• Thread to match your fabric.
• Interfacing for the facing pieces and the zipper opening.
• An invisible zipper, at least 25 cm (10”) long.
