Bring a little ease and a whole lot of fun to your wardrobe with the Chanterelle Pants and Shorts pattern. Featuring a comfortable and easy-to-fit elastic waist, wide leg, barrel leg, and shorts views, Chanterelle will fill any gap in your wardrobe and be an all-seasons piece for years to come.

The Chanterelle Pants and Shorts are the casual bottoms that can take a starring role in your wardrobe – dressed up in bright colors and fancy fabrics, casual in lightweight denim, or easy and cozy in soft fabrics.


Sew Liberated recommend a light-to medium-weight woven fabric that has no stretch.

The drape or hand of the fabric will impact the look of the final garment. Softer fabrics will fall more gently, and more stable fabrics will emphasise the leg shaping. Some wonderful choices are chambray, viscose-linen slub, sand-washed linen or cotton, ikat, Brussels washer linen, light twill (like Ventana twill), or cotton-linen blend. Recommended fabrics range in weight from 4.8 oz to 7.9 oz (155 – 268 GSM).
