Comparing pants: Willandra, Glebe & Sculthorpe

How do our pants compare?

When we released the Sculthorpe Pants we put together a little roundup showing you comparisons of the two different pants on different bodies.

Our Willandra Pants and our Sculthorpe Pants are both high-waisted pants, and are designed to sit a couple of inches above your belly-button. They both have tapered legs, but the flat front and unique side-seam of the Willandra Pants give them a whole different look!

What about the Glebe Pants?

Our Glebe Pants have an extra-long crotch curve which makes them our extra-high-waisted pants. Although we expect that 99% of makers won't need to lengthen the rise of the Willandra or Sculthorpe Pants, we'd probably eat our hats if you needed to lengthen the rise on the Glebe Pants! The rise on the Glebe Pants are extra high, and your waistband will be sitting much closer to your bra than it will be to your belly-button.

Can you easily adapt the patterns?

If you love the extra-high-rise on the Glebe Pants and want your Willandra Pants to fit in a similar way or if you want your Glebe Pants to sit where your Sculthorpe Pants do then we recommend a little bit of creative hacking! It's pretty straightforward to use the crotch curve from your preferred Muna and Broad pants for the other patterns. They'll be very similar in shape and size, just trace on the difference (or maybe even tape the pattern pieces together temporarily).

 

As always, if you need help just get in touch!

  • What is the preferred way to take 3/4” away from the rise on the Sculthorpe. I’m new to garment sewing. Thanks!

  • Which of the pants is best for a beginner ?

  • Hi JK,

    We think that will really come down to personal preference, but the Willandra are a ‘sleeker’ fit becaise of where the pockets sit, the amount of ease through the hip and because of the suggested fabric.

    Hope that helps!

  • I’m trying to decide between the Sculthorpe and the Willandra. For me, it comes down to the pocket. I’m an hourglass with the fullest part of my hips at the high hip measurement and I want the pockets to lay flat. Which one would you recommend?

  • Hi Janis,

    Leila tells me at Size 1, the knee width will be around 28 inches.

    Let us know how you get on!
