Made My Wardrobe Thelma Trousers (Intermediate)

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


The Thelma Trousers are a straight leg, high waisted pair of trousers, with a buckle detail at the back.

We wanted to design a hardworking pair of trousers that pretty much does it all. So we came up with Thelma. Climb a tree, ride a bike, fall off your skateboard, chop some wood, go to a festival, wear them out and about.

This pattern is a great way up your sewing skills and create a truly hard-wearing garment. If you have never sewn a fly zip before this is the perfect place to start. We've included plenty of pockets and a few interesting seam techniques which you may not have tried before.

The Freya Swimsuit is available in UK sizes 6 - 24 (see below).

Fabric Recommendations:

Thelma looks great made in heavy weight woven fabrics such as Denim, Twill or Corduroy. Once you have chosen your main fabric you will also need a lightweight cotton for your front pocket bag. 

Fabric Requirements:

Maximum 1.5m wide fabric needed: 1.35m for size 6-10, 1.5m for size 12-16, 1.9m for size 18-24

Notion Requirements:

a piece of fusible interfacing for your waist band and fly facing

a 15cm metal jean zip for your fly

a metal trouser hook and bar

a 2.5cm wide metal buckle for the back fastening.
