Comfy relaxing-trousers
I have always wanted pants like these. I draw the pattern from a pair of my friend's pyjamas trousers. They are just perfect for relaxing! They where very cheap, because I used an old duvet cover.

  • How to make trousers. Oversize Trousers - Step 1
    Step 1

    You will need two peaces of fabric looking like the once on the picture(one for the front, one for the back) I draw my pattern from another pair of pants, but I will try to describe how to measure it. This will probably seem confusing, but keep your head cool!

    Top: half the measure of your hips(plus 5 cm to make sure it will fit over your butt)

    Length: Measure your legs from your waist (not hip) to the ground (add 5 cm again to make sure they will get baggy)

    Bottom: Measure your ankles and (again add 5 cm.)

    You don't have to take care of sting allowance because of all the added cm.

    Step 2

    Draw the center of the pattern using the length. Center the top measure and the ankle measure.

    Measure 30 cm down from the waist and go 5 left or right. Draw a soft curve using the marks.
    Combine the 5 cm mark with the ankle.

    (I am a size M and my measures were top: 2x50 cm, ankles: 30 cm, Length: 120 cm)

    Step 3

    First I would zig zag all edges.
    Then: Fold each leg piece in half, right side together, pin from ankles to crotch and sew (do not sew all the way up to waist!)

    Step 4

    Make a "track" for elastic bands in the ankles. Feed the elastic bands into the track

    Step 5

    Now put the unsewn edges together. (from the crotch to the waist) Pin and sew. I couldn't get a good picture of this, so I hope you know what I mean.

    Don't sew all the way up in the front. leave 3 cm. Bend it around for making a "track". Feed shoelace for tightening in the waist.

    There you go, ready to wear. These where the second ones I made for my friend. I hope you understand the How-To. If not, please tell me!
