Build Your Wardrobe with the Dexter Pants

The Dexter pants might look like a sleek pair of fitted trousers at first glance. But don't be fooled by their tailored appearance, these pants are actually knit. A fitted cut, darts, pintucks, a side zipper, and waist facing give these pants an elevated edge. Sew Dexter in medium to heavy weight knits such as Ponte or double knits for a classic structured look or try French terry for something with a softer drape.

For the best fit, choose a medium to heavyweight knit with good stretch and recovery. We love the way double knit, Ponte, and French terry work for this project.
