The Max pants are so fun to make, with a versatile design that you can sew over and over in different fabrics. They have a breezy tapered silhouette with inseam and patch pockets. The elastic waist back gives you a streamlined look from the front with a flexible, comfortable fit at the back.

These pants are designed to complement the Katiusca tank. Sew up both patterns in linen for a coordinating me-made outfit that will never go out of style.

If tapered pants aren't your style, check out the member bonus. for the Max pants, which adds a wide-legged option.
