Self-Care Sewing Kit: Pietra Pants
Part of Closet Core's Rome Collection, the Pietra Pants & Shorts are the best of both worlds; a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfort of an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and a hidden waist stay, they are so comfortable you’ll never want to take them off.
Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in floor-skimming or cropped length (View A), a slim and tapered leg (View B), or gently flared shorts (View C).
In this box, you will receive a paper pattern, fabric of your choice, and all the notions to match your fabric. And don't forget, you can use the pattern over and over again!

- Palm Green Tencel Twill - This fabric is all about the color. This lush, medium green is slightly muted with a sandwashed finish for extra depth and slight sheen. It's an amazing transitional color to take you from late summer into fall. Plus, the fabric itself is a medium weight tencel twill with great body and a lovely, supple drape, ideal to make these elastic waist pants look like a cut above the rest!
- Black Emerson Striped Woven - With satin weave stripes alternating across a simple broadcloth face, this fabric is quite unlike anything we've ever seen. The black on black is simply stunning, and looks effortlessly modern. The cotton and linen add texture while the viscose adds softness and drape. But the real fun is playing with the direction of the stripes on these pants. Oh the possiblities!
