The Helicopter Top and Trousers are super-quick and easy to make with no side seams. Tuck the top into the trousers to give the illusion of an all-in-one! A versatile pattern to make again and again in all types of fabrics.
The Helicopter Trousers have pleats at the front and minimal gathers at the back give to give a sleek look without the need for a zip. The Helicopter Top is a simple shell design, slightly fitted through the bust and hanging loose at the waist. Bust darts ensure no baggy armholes!
Shorten the trousers to make nice wide shorts or culottes.
Easy for beginners, quick for the more experienced.
From floaty georgette to crisp linen, soft cotton to slinky silk/viscose velvet, this pattern makes up well in all sorts of fabric. Once you make one you'll want lots more for every season and occasion!
Based on 140cm/11⁄2 yards wide fabric, for both top and trousers you will need 190cm/2 yards for sizes 8–10, or 3m/31⁄3 yards for sizes 12–18. If you have narrower fabric you will need 3m/31⁄3 yards for all sizes.
TOP – Small button for back fastening
TROUSERS – Wide elastic (at least 4cm/11⁄2") in a complementary colour to your fabric. You will need the length of your waist + 4cm/11⁄2" overlap.
UK 8-18 (Alice + Co are working hard to update all their patterns to their full size range - watch this space!)
