Fabric Ideas for the Meriam Trousers

Sew a classic pair of pants for every occasion with the Meriam Trousers! Today we are sharing some of our favorite fabric choices for this wardrobe staple.

The Meriam Trousers are woven pants you’ll love to wear! This pattern comes in sizes 0-32 and features a zip fly with hidden button closure, front slash pockets, straight legs, and an optional back welt pocket. The best part of these trousers is that the waistband gently expands as you sit down—plus there’s an optional back piece with a full bum adjustment included! The Meriam Trousers will keep you comfortable and stylish whether you’re working in the office or at a festive social event.

Make the Meriam Trousers your own with your choice of light to mid-weight non-stretch woven fabrics such as wool suiting, linen, poly/cotton, or poly/wool blends. Here are some of our favorite choices for the Meriam—take a look!
