Women don't always want to wear jeans, so we designed these jogger pants with the side stripes as a pattern for you. Penelope can be very sporty if you use, for example, sweat fabric as the material, very classy and definitely nice for going out in the evening thanks to the use of jacquard and satin. or a wool blend with contrast stripes for everyday wear. Slanting pockets at the front and patch pockets at the back round off the look of the trousers. Thanks to the elastic waistband, these pants can also be used by less experienced hobby seamstresses. Side length without waistband = 100cm.
The chic Penelope trousers with a contrasting side stripe from this pattern were sewn from a firmer trouser fabric.
We recommend classic trousers, a wool blend or jacquard with contrast inserts, but sweat fabric is also possible.

- 1x front pocket opposite
- 2x rear pocket
- 1x bundle in break
- 1x side stripe in opposite directions
- 1x 4.5cm wide elastic band in your waist measurement
Serge all edges of the back pockets.
Iron the edges based on the pattern piece.
Fold the top corner inwards at a 90° angle so that you don't see the seam allowances of the side edges later when opening the pocket.
Using the markings in the pattern, pin the pocket out on the right side of the hind trousers and stitch it tightly to the side edges and the two bottom edges. Lock the seams well at the pocket opening.
Repeat these steps on the other side. Now your hind trousers parts are ready.
Then we continue with the front trousers parts. Pin the pocket at the slanted edge to the slanted edge of the front pants, right sides together...
.. and sew the pocket to the sloping edge.
To ensure that no seam can be seen from the right later, but also that the inner pocket does not bulge out, flat-stitch the just closed seam by placing the seam allowance in the direction of the pocket and stitching it from the left.
Using the marking, fold the pocket back out and overcast the lower, open edge.
If you want, you can fix the pocket at the top and on the side inside the seam allowance on the trouser leg.
Lay the side stripe right sides together on the side seam of the front pants...
... and close this seam.
Then iron the seam allowance in the direction of the trouser leg and stitch it tightly.
Then place the front trousers with the stripe right sides together on the matching back trousers and close the side seam here as well.
Iron the seam allowance again in the direction of the trousers and topstitch it tightly.
Then put the leg right sides together again and close the inner leg seam.
Depending on your choice of fabric, neaten the hem and turn it inwards by 3 cm.
Stitch the hem tightly. Repeat these steps for the other pant leg.
Turn one pant leg inside out, leaving the other right side out. You now put the latter right sides together in the former, …
... so that the inseams meet, as do the upper edges. Close this crotch seam in one go and then turn the pants right side out.
Halve the waistband lengthwise, right sides facing, and close the short side seam. Then, using the pattern, iron the hem in the middle and both open edges 1cm inwards.
So you have the prepared waistband and the rest of the trousers in front of you.
Unfold the waistband and pin it all the way around with its right side on the inside edge of the trousers. Make sure that the snaps meet each other. The side seam of the waistband meets the center back of the pants.
You can see the edge of the temple very well. Sew the waistband about 2mm apart inside the seam allowance all the way around.
Since my fabric pulls so much threads, I also neatened this seam. Fold the seam allowance towards the waistband...
... and fold the waistband over the seam you just closed so that it lies in the middle edge of the temple. Pin the waistband firmly from the right side.
If you now sew the waistband with 1mm distance to the edge, you automatically meet the inner edge of the waistband. Leave a few inches open at the back of the pants.
Use a safety pin to pull the elastic through this opening.
Be careful not to twist the elastic inside. Sew the two elastic ends together well, pull the elastic inwards and close the short opening.
Your waistband is finished with the elastic band on the inside.
Congratulations, your Penelope pants are complete!
