  • Wide flared leg.
  • High or mid rise.
  • Waistband with elastic.
  • Optional faux fly.
  • Multiple front and back pocket options.
  • Snug but not tight over tummy.
  • Slight ease through the hips.
  • Butt shaping darts.
  • Sizes 4-30.
  • Simple finishes for fast and easy sewing.

    Pocket 1: Jean-style front pocket featuring fold over pocket bag & rounded pocket opening.

    Pocket 2: Front cargo pocket. This is sewn on top of the front legs.

    Pocket 3: Front welt pocket. Diagonal welt pocket with 1-layer pocket bag stitched on the inside of the pant leg.

    Pocket 4: Back patch pocket.

    Pocket 5: Back welt pocket. If you're always wanted to sew a welt pocket but were too scared, try this one. It is a simplified version of the classic welt pocket. We even have a video showing you how.

    The Walk Boldly Wide Leg Pants sewing pattern are snug at the waist, fitting closely over the tummy & bottom without being tight, showcasing a gracefully flared wide leg that starts at the waist and extends all the way to the hem. We have included darts along the back for a better fit on our curves. The fit through the crotch is close but not snug. Of course fabrics with heavier drape, like rayon or bamboo, will tend to force the crotch to sit slightly lower away from the body.

    STYLE DIFFERENCES: You've probably seen that we're a little obsessed with wide leg pants of all varieties. So, what are the differences between our different wide leg sewing patterns? 

    Urban Wide Leg Pants: The Walk Boldly Wide Leg Pants feature a higher rise option (creates a more elongated silhouette). Narrower waistband (with elastic). Optional faux fly front. Slightly more ease through the hip/seat. Wider hemline flare (similar to Vacation Vibes - Subtle option). Multiple front & back pockets to choose from. Learn how to do a back welt the easy way. Wider size range.

    Palazzo Pants: The Walk Boldly Wide Leg Pants have dramatically less fullness in legs, hemline & crotch. Wider size range.

    Vacation Vibes Palazzo Pants: This is our palazzo pant sewing pattern for woven fabrics. 

    Coco Wide Leg Pants: This is our wide leg pants sewing pattern for woven fabrics. 

  • Size 4-30.
  • View our size chart here.

    SUITABLE FABRIC: This Wide Leg Pants pattern is designed for stretch knit fabrics with elastane, spandex or lycra. These include 4-way or 2-way stretch with vertical give*.

    STRETCH FACTOR: Horizontal Stretch: Min. 30%. Vertical Stretch: Min. 20%.

    FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: View the chart here.

    FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: Bamboo Elastane, Cotton Lycra, Crepe Knit, Double Brushed Poly (DBP), French Terry (FT)*, ITY, Liverpool, Merino Wool Knit, Modal Elastane, Poly Elastane Jersey, Poly Rib Knit, Ponte (rayon based), Rayon Elastane, Rayon Rib Knit,  Scuba (my fave), Single Brushed Poly (SBP), Stretch Velvet (velour), Sweater Knit, Swimwear Spandex, Viscose Elastane.

    Q: My fabric has horizontal stretch but only vertical 'give'. Can I use it?

    Yes. If your fabric has vertical give (or less than 15% vertical stretch), it will need a minimum of 50% horizontal stretch to balance this out. Note that these fabrics may also sit lower on the body in the rise.

    Q: My fabric has a lot of vertical stretch. Can I use it?

    Yes. Just keep in mind that a lot of vertical stretch can result in your pants ‘growing’ in length both at the hemline & crotch. Examples include rayon, viscose, bamboo & ITY. Sewing pockets on super stretchy fabrics may also be problematic & require extra patience & experience.  

    In my What's In The Pattern video (linked above), my light grey rayon rib knit falls into this category. I reduced the rise by 4cm (1.5") to account for the super stretchiness of this fabric. 


    Tutorial: Includes comprehensive step by step instructions with plenty of photos.

    Walk Boldly Wide Leg Pants

    Winner winner! I love these pants so much I have made three pair and more to come. So versatile

    For the first time in a while I can walk boldly in pants!

    Thank you so much Kate for creating these perfect pants. I’ve had digestive issues for over a year, and couldn’t wear pants. Couldn’t find pants that were both flattering and comfortable and allowing me to grow and shrink after each meal….
    I’ve started sewing 10 months ago, and this is my first ever pants that I sew. I absolutely love how they turned out. Flattering- totally! Comfortable- totally! I’m now going to make them in at least 5 fabrics, probably more!
    As a beginner or intermediate the instructions were very clear, the video for the welt pockets was absolutely perfect. And the outcome is a perfect gorgeous pair of pants. That gives me the confidence to sew and to wear pants feeling gorgeous and comfortable. Walk boldly is the most accurate name for these beauties, allowing me to walk boldly wearing pants!
    Thank you so much!

    I enjoyed making these pants. Excellent instructions and good fitting. Thanks Kate!

    Walk Boldy

    This pattern is great and I love my Walk Boldy Wide Leg pants.
    I was hesitant at first to make them with being a wide leg on my 5'2" frame. However, I saw so many gorgeous makes on others that I bit the bullet bought the pattern and made them.
    They sewed up so quickly, and I adore the 'swishy' feel around my legs as I walk. They are my most comfortable pair of pants
    I have worn these on repeat since i made them. They're no sooner out of the Laundry than I have them on again.
    Printing instructions were easy and sewing instructions a breeze.

    Walk Boldly

    I love, love, love this pant! I have made it several times and even cut the pant leg width down so it is more of a straight leg pant.
