Description

The Chi-Town Chinos Expansion Pack by Alina is an add-on to the Chi-Town Chino Pattern that allows you to make a pair of semi-fitted, full-length pants. The pants have an option for welt pockets, however the pattern pieces from the original pattern can be interchanged allowing for fun customization.

Wear the Chi-Town Chino trousers rolled at the cuff with a pair of sneakers and a long-sleeved shirt for a casual yet preppy look. Or pair the pants with boots and a sweater for a chilly fall day.

Additional Notes

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

I've already started my second pair, these will soon be a TNT just like the shorts version.
The trousers fit differently enough from the short taht you should still make a muslin.


This is a fun pattern to sew. The results are extremely professional!


I love how clear and thorough the instructions are, overall, and especially for the pockets and fly. I experienced some confusion over the back welt pockets, but in the end they came out ok.


Alina's instructions are so great! They walk you through every step of making these pants, making each step simple!


Excellent instructions for the welt pockets.



I made several #sewingtall changes -- please see my blog to read more about them!


This a great pattern for pants-sewing newbies!



I LOVE these pants!


This pattern was my first time making welt pockets. Alina's instructions were amazingly clear.
