The Mia Shorts and Pants are the gateway pants…
That sounds a little wrong, but what I mean is that Mia is perfect for everyone who thinks they don’t wear woven fabric. Mia will make you realize that woven pants can be COMFORTABLE. They can be classy. Even though Mia has an elastic waistband and a wide leg, that doesn’t mean you’ll look sloppy.
The Mia Shorts and Pants are the perfect transition piece for fall and spring. With a wide leg and pull on waist, these are easy to fit and easy to sew! You’ll be exploring ALL the apparel woven fabric in no time!
What is an apparel woven? Glad you asked! These fabrics typically come in 56″ wide and are sold at popular online places such as Mood Fabrics and Fabric.com. Stores such as JoAnn and Hobby Lobby have some too! I got a really nice chambray from HL and the drape is beautiful! The Mia Shorts and Pants will work with flannel and quilting cotton too, but the drape will be very different. (Drape is how it hangs on the body.) Quilting cotton will be a lot stiffer and an apparel woven will look flowy.
The Mia Shorts and Pants include:
- Sizes 0-30 based on our contoured size chart (see in last image)
- Multiple inseam lengths for shorts, capri, and long pants cut lines
- Patch front and back pockets
- Optional drawstring
- Comprehensive fitting directions at end of tutorial
