Pattern Reviews — Pomona Pants

Anna Allen's beginner-friendly Pomona Pants are super popular and we can see why! A uniquely simple pattern, with impeccable instructions and several options, the Pomona pattern is not only a quick project but a fantastic addition to any handmade wardrobe. Bianca from our Online Store team made this reversible pair recently, using a double-sided cotton deadstock fabric. Read on for more!





Pattern Review


Pomona Pants — Anna Allen

The Pomona Pants are a super simple elastic waist, high rise and loose fitting pant pattern, with optional patch pockets. The simplicity of this pattern lies in its fold-over waistband and lack of side seams. Bianca chose to make up a size 10 in View A, the wide leg, ankle length sailor-style pant with patch pockets on the back. The entire project took under a day to make and used 3m of our Reversible Double Gauze Cotton Check in Pea Mix, plus 1m of 50mm white elastic. Bianca made these Pomona's fully reversible with the addition of flat-felled seams, a much easier process due to the lack of side seams in the pattern. She also made the hem a little deeper and describes the fit as super comfortable, definitely a pattern she'll make again! The Pomona Pant pattern can be downloaded from Anna Allen's website here.
