I am love, loving the cargo pant trend I am seeing for Spring 2023 fashion styles. Not your basic carpenter pant, but uber chic in sateen, silk, and lightweight luxury fabrics.
I created a Pinterest Board with some of the looks I am speaking of.
We can sew this! I am thinking you could really just add extra pockets and some loops to just about any flat front pant pattern you already have. I am definitely seeing the Marsha Style Alexis pant in a sateen with a large pocket on both thighs.
The Peppermint Wide Leg pants have that classic carpenter pant cut to them as well. One need only add a little ease all around, and of course the extra pockets to get a more safari cargo pant.
Of course there are actual cargo pant sewing patterns out there – but not that many surprisingly. I like the look of MimiGStyle Simplicity 8889 View B. And you know “your Girl” as she says, has a sew along for that.
Itch to Stitch Patterns has a more traditional cargo pant. I don’t have this one yet. I can’t buy ALL the Things you know! SewSewLive stitched up the cutest pair though. Check it out on her website: Sequoia Cargo Pants by Itch to Stitch Designs – Sew Sew
This last one I want to share with you is the one I am going to be downloading soon. It is the Mood Patterns Adair Pant. I would like to get my hands on some sateen fabric but that can be a little pricey. I will come up with something though – be sure of that. At least this pattern is free!
