PRODUCT INFORMATION

About the Portobello

Simple, elegant and oh-so-flattering, the high-waisted Portobello trousers are a cinch to make and work in a variety of fabrics for year-round comfort.  Make them in a lightweight wool and you’re work-ready in the winter; linens and rayons will keep you cool and effortlessly chic in the summer. The wide-legged silhouette is bang on trend and can be made to evoke the glamour of the ‘40s starlet or the relaxed vibe of a ‘70s bohemian. Pair with fine jumpers, soft blouses or cropped tops.

The trousers are constructed with front pleats and back darts, and a centre-back concealed zip (avoiding any tricky fly construction!), along with the all-important in-seam pockets. This pattern is suitable for confident beginners and upwards.  You’ll need to be able to insert a concealed zip but otherwise everything is pleasingly simple.

 

The Fabrics

For your Portobello, select light- to medium-weight wovens, ideally with some drape, such as crepe, linen, chambray, rayon, lightweight wool, cotton lawn, and velvet.

 

The Notions

  • 1 x 9” concealed zip
  • 1 x 1/2” button
  • fusible interfacing for the waistband

 

Sizing

The size range for this pattern is UK sizes 6–20. 

The Nina Lee patterns available from stockists are drafted for UK sizes 6–20.  Nina is in the process of updating designs to have a second size range from UK 16–28.  You will need to order directly from Nina Lee if you would like the 16–28 range, but we hope these will be available for the shop in the future.
