The ZW Block Pant

We have a new pattern! The ZW Block Pant is a zero waste pattern that comes with 10 sizes, XS-6XL, hip 86-152cm / 34-60".

This pant has an attached waistband with elastic and front pleats for a slightly tailored look. There are front in-seam pockets and back patch pockets with a detail seam on the back legs.



ZERO WASTE PATTERN CUTTING is a bit like a puzzle. It is a method of pattern drafting where you utilise a pre-determined length of fabric end to end by strategically planning your pattern pieces so that everything is used. We work with a PAPERLESS method which means that no printing of large pattern pieces is required. This means less wasted fabric, and paper! Instead of using full scale paper patterns, you draw your pattern pieces directly onto your fabric with the help of small templates. By using this method it is easier to work with different fabric widths and make simple design and fit changes to the pattern yourself.

All of our garments and sewing patterns use this method and are made and developed in-house in our studio/store in Malmö Sweden.
