pant 1 in hemp organic cotton canvas
I wear my clothes hard: biking, walking my dog, working in my sewing studio, lounging (a lot of lounging), but all of this means that I need clothing that matches my life. I need to be able to sit, walk, bend and work without constriction. I wanted pants that were made for my busy life, but that would keep me warm in the cooler months and still look great. So when it came to pattern drafting this pant, there had to be plenty of space in the hips, thighs and knees to allow for lots of movement and comfort. I knew I wanted a tapered leg, which keeps the chilly fall air out and means less fabric to muck around with. Another design element I knew I wanted was a super high waist: every size features a 15” rise. The elastic waist band is 2” wide, making these pants all the more comfortable. The super high rise of these pants make them the perfect pairing for my cropped shirts. The hem is also cropped to wear with winter boots (Blundstones are my new jam) and a pair of (handmade) socks. The cropped hem also means they look great with a pair of mules. Lastly, inseam pockets. That’s right, this pair of pants has deep inseam pockets for all of your essentials.
Made in a dreamy 9oz hemp organic cotton canvas in a color that I’m calling “mushroom.”
Let's talk sizing. As you might already know, I feature "open sizing" with my brand. This is my way of challenging our sizing norms and encouraging customers to choose a size that makes them feel good without judgement. These pants currently come in 11 sizes. Because you might need a sizing reference, you can think of these sizes ranging from a traditional size 0 to 20 with open size 1 being a size 0 and an open size 11 being a size 20. The inseam measurement for each size is 23" and the rise measurement is 15". Keep in mind that because of the elastic waist band of these pants, there's some wiggle room between sizes. Size up if you want a more relaxed fit and size down if you want a closer fit. The size guide below is a suggestion based on waist and hip measurement. As always, feel free to e-mail me with sizing questions. I'd be happy to help.

*Please note that because of the handmade nature of my clothes there could be slight variations in these measurements. I consider this my own little act of "wabi sabi" which is the Japanese concept of the beauty in imperfection.
