Easy fit means all-day comfort, and with a choose-your-own-adventure list of options, you can pile on the pockets, or not! Make structured jeans or flowy trousers with interchangeable leg and waistband views. The Cosecha Pants can be endlessly customized to suit your personal style and slip right into your wardrobe. Pair the Cosecha Pants with a tee, a favorite sweater, cozy flannel, or a more formal button-down.

If you’ve never fit pants before, the Cosecha Pants are a great place to start. The yoke seams, side zipper and tab closure make adjusting easy and fun.

An everyday pant with two leg silhouette options, the Cosecha Pants have yoke seams that flow with and support the front and back patch pockets, a cute and functional tab closure on the waistband, and a left side zipper.

On View A, the fitted, curved waistband and darts on the back yoke provide a tidy waist fit, while the ease in the hip and legs provides all-day comfort and ease of movement.

Fabric and materials recommendations

For specific fabrics, you can shop EWE Fine Fiber’s curated fabrics for the Cosecha Pants pattern.

We recommend a bottom-weight woven fabric that is durable and will wear well. The fabric should have 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 sturdy fabrics like canvas or twill will enhance the utility look and the leg silhouette. Some wonderful choices are twill, denim and canvas in 7-11 oz weight.

For View B, due to the elastic back, we encourage you to keep your fabric weight to 7.9 oz or lower – that’s the weight of Ventana twill, which handles wonderfully with the elastic back, but any heavier will not play nicely with the elastic.

You’ll also need a small amount of coordinating lightweight woven fabric like poplin, shirting, or quilting cotton for the View A patch pocket lining. You’ll need 11” x 30” (28 cm x 77 cm). This easily fits on a fat quarter if you’re using quilting cotton.

Other Materials

  • 0.75 yd (0.7 M) of lightweight fusible interfacing, either woven or non-woven. (An average width of interfacing is 20″ (0.5 M).)
  • Zipper – “” (22.9 cm) for sizes 0-24 OR 10” (25.4 cm) for sizes 26-34. Use a jeans zipper in a color that looks good with your fabric – you’ll see it, so choose one that you really like!
  • View B Only – 1 ¼” (3.2 cm) elastic. This should be sturdy elastic with good recovery.
  • Button – preferably a jeans button of the hammer-in type, 5/8″ (1.6 cm) or 3/4″ (1.9 cm) diameter
  • Optional: Fray Check
