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.
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.

Walk Boldly Everday!
These pants are on rotation every other day. They are so so comfy and go with any top under the sun. They are my most favourite pants for every occasion!! There are 3 more cut out ready to make up this weekend - thanks for a fabulous pants pattern again Kate 😀
Perfect pant pattern
Love the fit!
I love this pattern so much!!! It is the perfect wide width that I love in work pants and the faux fly makes it so that it looks great for work but I can make it in comfy fabrics and it feels like wearing pajamas to work!!!
My new favourite pants! So easy and fast!
I love these pants so much. They were so easy to put together and the rounded jeans pockets were really fast! I’ve made two pairs so far, with more planned. Another fabulous PE pattern! Thanks Kate & Mel
