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.

Unusual pocket

I liked the pockets but not the elastic in the back. If I make it again I'd put in darts and a zip

For all body types!

I’ve made the wide leg shorts and the culottes. Both are awesome. Being short and short waisted, I made very small changes. Once you line up the pieces, which are easy following the excellent directions, they magically come together perfectly.
I think I need a third pair. Thinking wide leg trousers for autumn.

Pietra Shorts

I loved this pattern! Very easy to follow (I have been sewing under a year) and came together very quickly. I used a medium weight linen and I'm in love! The shorts fit me well and I feel great in them. I already have a pile of linen laid out for more in a few different colors. Thanks so much for this lovely pattern!

Pietra pants

The pants are very comfortable and I like wearing them. I made culottes version from tencel and it fits well. The only change I made was to reduce my waist height by a few inches. The instructions was very clear and sewing was fun. I would definitely do another, probably the short version of Pietra pants.

I love every closet core pattern I’ve tried!
These trousers fit perfectly and are so comfortable. The pattern instructions are very easy to follow
I’ve made 2 pairs already with another 3 planned.

Great pattern

Having made these pants in linen can confirm the pattern was well written and made well
