All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 30.
The best part about this pattern is that both views go together the exact same way! Once you choose whether you’d like full-length pants or cropped capris, cut your pattern at the desired cut line, and then you’re ready to start sewing.
Begin by following the guidelines on your pattern to create the two pleats in the front panels of your pants. Pin them into place.
Create 8 belt loops – my fabric pieces measured 1″x1.75″, and pin two of them in between your front pleats like you see below. Stay-stitch them into place along with the pleats, faces together. Split the remaining 4 belt loops and tack them to the back panels of your pants similarly.
Fabric faces together, place one layer of each of your pockets along the outer edges of your front pants panels. Align the top of the pocket with the waistline of your pants, like you see below. Stitch into place.
Place your zipper face down on the right pant leg, aligning with the center front. The bottom of your zipper should hit 1/2″ above the bottom of the fly facing. Stitch into place along the right side of the zipper, like you see in the top right image below. Fold the raw edge of the fly facing inward and edge-stitch, like you see in the lower images.
Lay your other front pants layer on top, face down, and sew along the opposite side of the zipper. Stitch your front pant legs together starting at the bottom of your zipper, down the remainder of the front rise. Fold the right pant leg back to create the front fly, and stitch down, like you see in the two lower images below.
Add the second layer of your pockets to your back pants panels, much like you did with the front. Connect your rear panels at the back rise, and then sew the front and back of your pants together at the inseam and outer seams. For the outer seam, be sure to go around the edge of your pocket, like below, and then pin your pockets toward the front of your garment.
Add your waistband along the top of your pants. Before edge-stitching your waistband closed (like I stupidly did below!), add your magnet above your zipper. Edge-stitch the waistband closed, and add your hook & eye for extra support.
Hem the bottom of your pants and they’re ready to wear! Which will you be making – full-length or cropped?
