TUTORIAL and PATTERN: Kid Pants, the basic pants
Welcome to our series on KID PANTS. All the styles that are shared are adaptable to any size pants….from babies up to adults; for boys and girls. We’ll show you the ins and outs of making pants and we’ve got a downloadable pattern for size 2-3 toddler. Today we’re starting with the Basic Pant, with an elastic casing waistband. This is similar to a pair of comfy pajama pants or a sweat suit. But don’t let those terms scare you! And when you’re ready to mix it up, try out our other simple pants tutorials: But first, let’s talk about pants. Elastic waist-band pants/shorts are one of the easiest things to make. Pants are made of 4 pieces (2 different pattern pieces). If you’ve never made pants before and you’re drafting your own pattern (from an existing pair of pants), you may want to sew a trial pair first….just to see if you’re creating the pattern properly. And that’s all you need to understand about pants. First, you need a pattern. What I love about this pattern: * Style and comfort.
