Part of our Rome Collection, the Pietra Pants & Shorts are the best of both worlds; a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfort of an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and a hidden waist stay, they are so comfortable you’ll never want to take them off.

Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in floor-skimming or cropped length (View A), a slim and tapered leg (View B), or gently flared shorts (View C).

 All tops except for the close-fitting white t-shirt are the Cielo Top from our Rome Collection.

Fabric and Supplies

SUGGESTED FABRIC

This pattern can be made with a variety of fabrics depending on the desired effect. For a more defined shape, use structured wovens such as linen, chambray, or lightweight denim or twill (heavyweight wovens may create too much volume at the elastic waist). For a swishy, glamorous look, use rayon challis, tencel, or silk.

I like the pattern, it has a wonderful shape. I've sewn the version with the tapered leg part. I think I could have gone down a number in sizing, at least at the hips, but at all it fits me well. I was a bit afraid that the elastic part at the back is to bulky and would make my bottom look bigger so I added darts. I'm very pleased with the result. The instructions were easy to follow. I would definitely make the pattern again and have planned to sew the short version out of a chambray and again a tapered leg version in a linen blend for summer.

Great pants!

I really love the Pietra pants I just finished in a linen chambray. The fit is perfect for me. I made the wide leg cropped version and it fit from the start...I made a muslin first and had nothing to fit except a bit at the waist. I will be making a pair in narrower legs and another pair of the wide as well.

I loved making these pants. I am a newbie sewer and found it very easy to follow.
I have worn my pants quiet a bit and will now make some more.
A great go to pattern.

Perfection

I had only made one pair of pants prior to purchasing the Pietra pattern. I need to grade between sizes but this was easy to do and what I thought would be an intricate make was actually very easy as the instructions are so well written. The final fit was perfect for me, I was so impressed I immediately made a second pair and I think this will be my ‘go to’ pattern for future pants.

Amazing Pattern

I am now the proud maker, owner and wearer of 4 pairs of Pietra Pants. What a clever pattern! The pockets are a treat. Thank you.

The pockets!

I sewed these up in a cotton/linen blend from merchant and mills and they are the perfect pant for warmer weather. Love the elastic waist in the back. CC patterns have always been true to size for me and the instructions are great! And of course - amazing pockets!
