Emerson Crop Pant Sewing Pattern

I never thought a cropped pant would make it to my TNT (tried and true) list, but the Emerson Crop Pants  by True Bias  have firmly cemented their place there. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve made them – 8? The pattern was my first foray into wide-leg pants, and I haven’t turned back! I love that the pants are comfortable and stylish – and that waistband is genius. I love it so much I’ve hacked it into a skirt!

I’ve made four pairs of pants – one a muslin, one in Robert Kaufman Brussels washer linen (highly recommend!) and two pairs for my mom. Even she’s a fan!

I’m not much of a shorts person but summertime and little kids means lots of outdoor adventuring. Again, I find the Emerson shorts to be the perfect blend of comfort – even for hiking – and style.

And the hack options! I’ve used the waistband to create a canvas skirt from scraps (it figures that it might be one of my all time favorite makes!) and a tencel twill button-up skirt. And pockets!

And there’s more! Sometime soon, I plan to make a full-length version in a lightweight twill because I just can’t go all winter without my Emersons. Want to sew up a pair for yourself? Follow our sew along!

    I love, love, love elastic back pants/skirts!!! I looked for years for a pattern with this feature and couldn’t find one. I finally decided to hack a pattern that I already had. Before I finished the hacking process, I found a trousers pattern with elastic back. It is now my TNT and I’ve made almost a dozen trousers and a dozen capris from the pattern. I can hack the width of the legs to be any width and length that I want. They are the most comfortable bottoms that I wear!
