With a utilitarian-inspired style and an easy-to-sew zipper fly, the Nolan pants are the perfect pattern to take your sewing skills up a level. These pants are fitted at all the right places with a relaxed, comfortable silhouette, high-rise, and slightly pegged legs, for year-round style.

They feature oversized pockets, sturdy belt loops, a fun cuff detail on the leg, and a zip fly. Sew them up in medium and heavyweight wovens like denim, linen, canvas, and twill. Our instructions include steps to sew the easiest zipper fly!
