Waves & Wild Children's Double Trouble Trousers - PDF sewing pattern


The Double Trouble relaxed fit, casual trouser pattern with a colour blocked option adding a stylish twist to a staple pattern.

There are 2 waistband options – regular elastic, or a double height jersey cuff. Choose between 2 leg cuff options – regular, or double height. The double height cuffs can be worn folded or unfolded and are perfect for children prone to growth spurts, or for little ones in cloth nappies. Finally you can add diagonal hip pockets and a faux drawstring.

This pattern goes from prem./small newborn up to age 12.

There are beginner-friendly options.

Medium weight knit fabrics such as french terry or sweatshirt knit are perfect for the Double Trouble Joggers. However, thinner fabrics such as cotton/lycra jersey can also be used for a more relaxed finish. Cotton/lycra jersey is also required for the double height cuffs.

An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish, but importantly, a regular sewing machine is all that is required for all options.
