Description

The Chi-Town Chinos Pattern by Alina Design Co. is a mid-rise easy fitting short and skirt pattern that falls straight through the hip and leg ending at the mid-thigh. Both versions feature side pockets with facings, a faced waistband, and optional back pockets. Back pockets come in two variations angled and curved with optional pocket flaps.

Practice inserting a zipper with this pattern, choosing between a button hole closure at the waistband or a hook and eye for the closure. Detailed instructions on more advanced sewing techniques are also included in this pattern.

Sew your Chi-Town Chinos shorts in a neutral twill and pair them with boat shoes and a chambray button up for a day outside. Wear the skirt with a cropped sweater for a chillier weather.

Additional Notes

This sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

It's hard for me to find ready to wear shorts because my waist size measures larger than my hips (i.e. constant muffin top) but this pattern leaves a back extension I can easily have extra room in my waist and a more flattering fit.
