Rose is here!

Please welcome my newest pattern, Rose! This versatile pants and shorts pattern is designed for woven fabrics and features slash pockets and a pleated or gathered front. The front waist is flat with pleats or gathers while the back waist is elasticized for a super comfortable fit. Choose from three lengths: long, cropped, or shorts.

Size Range
Rose is our first pattern to be available in 11 sizes: xxs-xl & plus sizes 1-5, for hip measurements 34″-59″ [88-150 cm]. We recommend selecting your size using your hip measurement. Size charts can be found in the shop or on the Rose page.

Three length options
Rose comes with cutting lines for three different lengths: shorts, cropped pants and long pants. The shorts have a 4″ [10cm] inseam, the cropped pants have a 23.5″ [60 cm] inseam, and the long pants have a 28″ [71 cm] inseam; measure a pair of your favorite shorts or pants so you can compare and adjust the pattern if necessary! All three lengths are designed with at least a 2″ wide hem allowance for easy length adjustment, and I’ve also included clear instructions on how to adjust the length of the pattern, because every body is different.

Built-in slash pockets are secured at the waist and side seam, and they’re big enough to hold a few essentials — phone, keys, change purse.

Pleats or Gathers
The pattern includes several options and alternatives for making the front pleated in a number of different ways, or even gathered. Check out this post for a closer look at some of those options.

Back elastic waistband
Rose has a double elastic channel in the back for a super comfortable (and adjustable!) fit. You can read more about the elastic I like to use for Rose and get more details on this pattern feature in my Rose Waistband Elastic options post.

  1. Hurray!! Congratulations on the launch and I cannot wait to get stuck in to making these this weekend!

    • That is a viscose/linen 70/30 blend from Telio – you can find it at Ewe fibers under “viscose/linen”, find it at Shop La Mercerie under “Avery slub linen,” or at Stone Mountain and Daughter under the name “Mora.” Blackbird Fabrics also carries it (can’t remember their name for it), as well as a number of other shops! let me know if you need more help locating it!

  2. Hooray! I’ve been eagerly waiting for this pattern to drop! I’ve already got the elastic you recommended and some linen ready to go! Thanks so much for the discount code as well!

  3. Hooray Rose has arrived, wondering if I could make them without the pleats, would love to make with and without!

    • you’ll have excess fabric all around your belly if you don’t do the pleats, you can do gathers instead

  5. Would you say this pattern is suitable for an adventurous beginner? I’ve successfully made the Cleo skirt, but I haven’t got any experience sewing trousers
