Maxx-ine Pants & Skirt

10 customer reviews


The Maxx-ine pants are a slim fit pants made for stable, medium to heavyweight knits and wovens with some stretch to them. The name Maxx-ine comes from the original Moto-Maxx pattern that was released in the fall of 2014. I’ve separated out the plain front Moto-maxx pants, simplified them and girl’d them up a bit with ankle zips! If you’ve put off purchasing the full Moto-Maxx set because you didn’t think you could make it work for your girl or just didn’t want both pieces in the Moto-Maxx set, this pattern is for you! The pants feature slash hip pockets, back pockets and a wide elastic waistband. Also included is a simple, straight skirt with side zips. Put in one side zipper or do both sides! Cute and trendy. Also included with the pants is a cut line for capri length. The skirt can be made in knee length as well as mid-thigh.

  1. Lea

    Talk about cute pants ! I love the zipper details, and the yoga waistband makes them easy to put on and take off.
    My daughter loves hers.

  2. Sarah

    My daughter has a difficult time with pants fitting (muscular build, prominent bottom, short inseam), but these are great for her. The back pockets are unique and cute. They were a quick satisfying sew. I have not tried the zipper option yet, but now that I know how well these fit my child, I’ll definitely be giving it a try on the next pair I make.

  3. Jaslyn

    Yoga waistband is my favourite for pants and Love Notions make it even better with it’s clear instructions and trimless format. And the zipper option is oh so cute! Not to mention it’s an easy sew too! Thanks Love Notions!

  4. Sarah

    I have made so many of these pants! Love the fit, the style, the pockets, the assembly.

    My daughter has requested zips on all her pants. She loves them. So do I.

    I love this pattern! Very easy to sew and comfortable to wear. I’ve made three pairs!

  7. Rachel (verified owner)

    A fantastic basic wardrobe item, and my girls love the skirt!

  8. Cindy (verified owner)

    This is a great pattern! I have a pear shaped 6 year old granddaughter. I made waist and hip size 6 , graded to size 4 legs and size 8 in length. No wonder she only wants grandma made

    Made these for my granddaughter without the zip in heavy weight pointe. Will make again as it’s a quick easy sew. Extended the length and downsized waist 2 sizes to accommodate her long skinny body.

    I made these for my Tween granddaughter and boy were they a hit; ball right out of the park! For the comfy side of bottoms, you can’t beat the stretchy yoga-style pants! But the edgy zippers with Converse or Cuchks sneakers, this style is a winner! Trust the tween who squealed with delight when she got the Maxx-ine pants in the mail!
