The Xanele Longs PDF Pattern Expansion
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: THIS IS A PATTERN EXPANSION which provides additional pattern pieces which supplement the Xanele Shorts pattern. YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO HAVE THE XANELE SHORTS PATTERN IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THESE PANTS.
The Xanelé Longs Pattern Expansion was borne out of my Xanelé Shorts having become such a wardrobe staple during the warm seasons, that I just couldn't face the approaching cooler months without having the option of the comfort and versatility that the shorts had afforded me. After having received many emails and messages from other sewists expressing the same sentiments I decided to bring the Longs to life.
The resulting pattern expansion offers both a slightly cropped, straight leg option as well as a tapered, full length trouser. Just like the Xanele Shorts these elastic-waisted pants offer a beginner-friendly project resulting in an easy-to-wear pair of pants that can be styled up or down depending on your mood.
THIS PATTERN IS AVAILABLE AS A PRINT AT HOME TILED PDF (Compatible with both A4 & US Letter Paper).
IT ALSO INCLUDES A COPY SHOP VERSION The Copy Shop file is a large scale PDF that you can take to a copy shop to be printed. Copy Shop files are A0 in width (841mm/ 33.1”), and can be any length.
BOTH PRINT AT HOME AND COPY SHOP VERSIONS ARE LAYERED PDF’S This means that you are able to print/ view selected sizes only. This not only saves ink (and sometimes paper), but also makes tracing/ cutting your pattern a lot less confusing.
