Self drafted - Pants

Pattern: Self drafted pants
Fabric: 1.6M 60" 2-way stretch spandex fabric (Harisons)

  • Used a tried and tested straight cut drafted pattern and re-designed for a slim fit
  • Used a cotton / linen blend fabric for the waistband facing and pockets
  • Did Hong Kong seams for the inseam and the outseam with store bought satin bias binding

Since this fabric has spandex and in order not to let the waistband get out of shape over time, it is advisable to use a non-stretch fabric as a facing

Hong Kong seams and pockets were French seamed!  This pants is getting an international treatment!
