Making Trousers

Ideas, patterns, fabrics and inspiration to make your own!

Maeve Fanning

With the days getting cooler and shorter it might be time to pull out the long pants! If you are ready to try and make a few pairs of your own here are a few ideas of patterns and fabrics to get you inspired about making trousers…

(We won’t mention jeans or denim in this post. Pop over here to see posts about making jeans.)

We have lots of Crepe fabrics in stock at them moment including a big pile of remnants in various colors – many have enough to make trousers. Click on the pics for links!

We also have bolts of regular stock that will be very suitable for making trousers:

Black Pinstripe Trousers Fabric

We have a few shades of Stretch Cotton Twill in a lovely weight for trousers

And finally Linen – traditionally a summer fabric but if lined would make a good transitional pair of trousers:

100% Linen Fabric - Brown

Trouser Pattern Options:

There’s a world of great patterns out there – from the traditional pattern companies to all of the new independent pattern designers many of which can be downloaded, printed at home and put together in an hour or so. (perfect wet evening activity!)

True Bias Pants – new Lander Pants  pattern – the newest pattern taking the online community by storm at the moment. Its a straight legged high waisted trousers and can be made in a variety of fabrics. Perfect for work or casual wear depending on what fabric you use.

Burda have a huge range of pdf patterns ready to download. Check them all out here..

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sew over it have a lovely simple straight legged trousers pattern – Ultimate Trousers.

 

Sewaholic Sewing patterns have the Thurlow Trousers and shorts, these are designed for pear shaped bodies and I can confirm that they are a great trouser pattern having made it years ago. There is a very useful sewalong series written by the blogger LLadybird – it will take you through each step with lots of photos and a really good description and can be applied to any trousers pattern.

Here are a few more patterns to peruse:

KB Stitch Designs – Siren Trousers

 

Style Arc – An australian company have a large selection of Trousers / Pants patterns.

 

Hope this helps inspire you for the weekend sewing  😉
