This is a free adaptive pants front pattern for children that is drafted specifically for seated individuals.

We strongly encourage you to make a test garment to dial in the perfect fit so there are no pressure points or discomfort.

Add ribbon loops to the inside of each side seam at the top to allow easier self-dressing, if appropriate.

The center front is reduced 2.5" / 63.5mm to remove excess fabric at the front. Adjust this using the Pant front seam adjustment for seated variable.

This has a fold-over elastic waistband. The finished width of the folded waistband is 1” / 25.4mm by default. You can change this using the waistband depth variable.

This pattern uses the natural waistline. If you want the pants to sit lower, add a waistline drop value.

This pattern includes the Pick-A-Length feature that allows you to choose the length of the pants. The length ranges from floor length to short (short-shorts are not available on this style). Visit the pants page in the manual to learn more.

The circumference of the pant leg at the hem will be calculated at two times the ankle circumference, if a pant leg circumference is not entered. The pants include a 1”/25.4mm hem.

This pattern is drafted using the hip measurement only with hip ease added.

Visit the variables page in the manual to learn more about all the options.
