Nina Lee Portobello Trousers Sewing Pattern

The Nina Lee Portobello Trousers Sewing Pattern creates simple, elegant, flattering high-waisted trousers.  These trousers are a cinch to make.  They also work in a variety of fabrics for year-round comfort. Make them in a lightweight wool and you’re work-ready in the winter.  Alternatively, use linens and rayons to keep you cool and effortlessly chic in the summer. The wide-legged silhouette evokes the glamour of the ‘40s starlet.  Alternatively, depending on the fabric used, it can reflect 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.  Importantly, they have a centre-back concealed zip to avoid any tricky fly construction. Furthermore, they feature the all-important in-seam pockets! This sewing pattern is suitable for confident beginners and upwards.  You need to be able to insert a concealed zip, but otherwise everything is pleasingly simple.

Skill level: confident beginner


The Nina Lee Portobello Trousers Sewing Pattern suits light- to medium-weight woven fabrics, ideally with some drape.  Therefore, we suggest crepe, linen, chambray, rayon, lightweight wool, cotton lawn or velvet.


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

Hello, I’m Nina!

Nina Lee is my independent pattern label celebrating the mighty power of making! I’m based in London and create sewing patterns inspired by the incredible heritage and diversity of this brilliant place. Our patterns are named after places in the city, from fashion-forward Carnaby Street to the historic treasure trove that is Bloomsbury, and on our printed pattern envelopes you’ll find original illustrations capturing the atmosphere of each neighbourhood.

We aim to be part of the movement away from disposable, ‘fast’ fashion, towards a more sustainable and rewarding form of dressing – but one that never forgets to be fun. Our designs are intended to fit into your me-made wardrobe year-round, and to work as canvases for your own creativity.

All of our patterns come in UK sizes 6–20, with in-depth, fully illustrated instructions to guide you through. They are drafted for an average height of 5’5″ and a B cup.
