Peggy Trousers PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £13.50


The Peggy Trousers are a classic pair of high-waisted trousers with a flattering paper bag waist. Easy to dress up or down, they are destined to become your new go-to trousers for both work and weekend. Lisa and Salma both love their Peggys with a casual Lucy T-Shirt, but they can also be smartened up with a Lilian, Freia or Pussy Bow Blouse!

With a zip fly at the front, they are elasticated around the side and back waist for comfort, easy fitting, and to create the paper bag effect. The front features dramatic pleats, though otherwise they sit flat across the tummy. Comfy to wear, the fit is loose through the hips and leg. They feature patch pockets on the back and belt loops at the waist. The legs taper slightly, finishing just above the ankle and there’s the option to finish the leg with a cuff or a regular hem.

Fabric Suggestions
For Peggy we recommend medium weight woven fabrics, such as heavier crepes and suitings. We’ve also made them in corduroy and light denims. You’ll also need a length of 1 inch elastic for the waist, a 9 inch zip, a small button, and interfacing for the waist.

Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Peggy Trousers sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 6-30. The pattern is split into two different blocks: sizes 6-20, and sizes 18-30. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

What will I receive?
The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format) in all sizes
  • fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
  • imperial/metric conversion size chart

The Peggy Trousers pattern is either 33 A4/US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop page (sizes 6-20), or 33 A4 pages and 34 US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop page (size 18-30).

If you purchase the PDF Pattern + Copyshop Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our PDF Printing Service here.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
