This is a free trouser sloper pattern for children with the X build. What is a sloper?

This uses the natural waistline. If a waistband depth value is added, the draft will lower so that the top of the waistband would sit at the natural waist level.

There is no ease in this draft and you'll need to add hip ease and waist ease. Although the full ease values will be added, waist and hip ease is not added equally to the front and back patterns. A formula is used depending on height.

You can also increase the crotch depth ease, which is set at  0.4" / 1cm by default. 

The front pattern includes a waist dart if the height exceeds 48" / 122cm. The size of the dart is determined by the height.

The back pattern includes a waist dart. The size of the dart will depend on the height measurement.

The circumference of the pant leg at the hem will be calculated using two times the ankle circumference, if a pant leg circumference is not entered.

This garment includes the following patterns:

  • 120-Trouser Sloper Front Child X
  • 121-Trouser Sloper Back Child X
