A piece of advice before starting:
- Once your pattern is printed, make sure the 1 in (2.54 cm) square is the right measurement.
- The assembly is entirely done using a 4-thread serger. If you don’t have access to a serger, you can do a narrow and short zigzag stitch as well as a regular zigzag stitch at the edge of your seam allowance for a nice finish.
- Use a stretch needle.
STEP 1: Cut the front/back piece twice, the ankle piece twice and the waistband once. I suggest using weights to secure the knit while cutting, as it will tend to stretch.
|Size A||Size B||Size C|
|Grainline||Stretch Direction||Grainline||Stretch Direction||Grainline||Stretch Direction|
|Ankle Cuffs||18 cm (7 po)||15.25 cm (6 in)||35 cm (13 ¾ in)||22.5 cm (9 in)||32 cm (12 ½ in)||27 cm (10 5/8 in)|
|Waist Band||18 cm (7 po)||41 cm (16 ¼ in)||26 cm (10 ¼ in)||45 cm (17 ¾ in)||32 cm (12 ½ in)||53.5 cm (21 in)|
STEP 2 : Right sides together, sew the sides of the pant by putting together the front and back pieces using the serger.
STEP 3 : Right sides together, sew the crotch in a single seam using the serger.
STEP 4 : Fold the ankle cuffs in half along the stretch direction, right sides together. Sew the sides to create tubes, using the serger.
STEP 5 : Fold the waistband in half along the stretch direction, right sides together. Sew the side to create a tube, using the serger.
STEP 6 : Fold the waistband and ankle cuffs in half, wrong sides together to hide the seams.
STEP 7 : Make sure the pant part is wrong side out. Insert the ankle cuffs in the pant part, placing the edges where the ankles are going to be joined, right sides together. Connect the cuff seams to the seam of the crotch. Assemble, with the serger, both ankle cuffs, stretching along the way, as the openings are smaller than the ones of the pant itself.
STEP 8 : Similarly to the previous step, insert the waistband in the pant part right sides together. Align the waistband seam with the centre of the back, and the side notches marked on the pattern with the side seams. Assemble, with the serger, the waistband, stretching along the way, as the opening is smaller than the one of the pant itself.
