Pants part3: side-seams, waistband and belt loops


here is the next part of the pants. Pants are really not that difficult, so dont be scared. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am already working on another based on the same pattern;) I will show you when I finished it. ๐Ÿ™‚

DSCF3905pin and sew the facing to the back pants, also use your serger or an overedging stitch if your fabric requires it, my pattern gave that weird curve, so I redrew it straight, before sewing
DSCF3906and again overedging

DSCF3937pin and sew the side seams and inseam, also use overedging

DSCF3940then pin one waistband-part to the top of your pants, leave 1 cm seam allowance at each end and sew

DSCF3942starts looking like pants huh?

DSCF3943I wanted belt loops, so I could wear a belt to my pants, so I cut some strips about 5 cm wide

DSCF3944folded them in the middle

DSCF3945sew and turn around

DSCF3946I put the seam in the middle and pinned it in place, so when sewing it would stay in place

DSCF3947pin to the top of the waistband

DSCF3948I have 5 belt loops all around, sew them in place with some stitches within the seam allowance

DSCF3949then pin the other waistband-part face to fave to the other

DSCF3950also sew that 1 cm seam allowance you left open, cut the corners

DSCF3951and turn around, fold the seam allowance of the inner waistband up and pin it in place, ย and sew close to your original seam, so the seam wont be visible, your belt loops should stand up like mine

DSCF3952my belt loops were to long so I cut them

DSCF3953then fold the end inward and pin them in place and sew them

so your pants should look pretty finished by now;) button and hem coming next week and your pants are finished ๐Ÿ˜‰

any questions left? please leave me a comment and I answer soon.

keep sewing and smiling
