Mitchell Trousers Pattern
Inspired by a genius songwriter with timeless style, Mitchell is a modern interpretation of a classic pleated trouser. Elegant and comfortable with very special details, they are destined to become your new favourite bottoms.
The Mitchell Trousers are high-waisted with a fly front zipper and a comfy hidden waistband facing for a sleek continuous silhouette through the rise–choose between a hidden pants hook and bar or classic button closure. Deep pleats in the front enclose a unique angled pocket. Darts shape the back, with optional back welt pockets. View A features a tapered leg ending at the ankle. View B features a full-length wide leg and adjustable waist straps secured with D-rings or sliders.
Sizes: 0-20 (print and PDF) and 14-32 (PDF)
- For a structured look, use sturdy woven fabrics like light to midweight denim, twill and canvas, and midweight linen, cotton, and wool suiting.
- For a softer effect, choose midweight fabrics with drape, such as tencel twill, wool crepe, or silk noil.

I have never had a negative experience with Core Fabrics or Closet Core. I love being a part of this sewing community.
I have made these twice now. Once as a muslin (that fit me perfectly with no alterations) and once as a pair that I don't want to take off my body! I can very much see these in so many patterns and colors! This will definitely be a pattern I reach for again and again. I measured myself and picked my size according to size chart and had no issues.
I used the size measurements according to your pattern. I basted the seams and think I could have made two sizes smaller. I find your directions a bit vague. A friend has suggested checking your videos as they are most helpful. So, I will, as I rip out these pants and recut them to fit.
