Recess Play Plants by Matchy Matchy Sewing Club

The Recess Play Pants are an everyday easy fitting pant with plenty of room for comfort. They feature an elasticated waistband, separated slant front pockets and optional back pocket(s). The seam down the center front and center back legs allows for optimal patchwork fun. The rise hits just slightly below the natural waist. The pattern is drafted as a full length pant giving you the flexibility to wear them full length or cuffed. The pattern can also be easily shortened to ankle length or lengthened as needed. View A has a 2″ (5 cm) wide hem. View B has an elasticated mini peplum cuff for some added sass. 

With all Matchy Matchy sewing patterns, we’ve designed the Recess Play Pants to have simple shapes and easy construction to take the overwhelm out of sewing and to help you find the joy of discovery.
