Sewing instructions for men’s pants

Sewing instructions for men’s pants:

Description of the content of the sewing instructions

This is the sewing instructions for the men’s pants. These are of medium difficulty to sew (due to the fact the pattern requires a zip to be inserted, and this can be tricky for people with little sewing skills).

The pants are lower in front. You can choose between three different types of flies: one simple and one more complicated, which can be made in a short or longer alternative.

The pants are higher in back, with a curved backside. The legs are straight and of medium width, which are easily altered (to be tapered, flared etc). They have a medium width waist band and do not include pockets or belt loops. Instructions on how to make pockets are available.

NOTE! Sewing instructions for pants without zip is available under the women’s pants sections.

The pattern to the men’s pants includes front and back pieces.

If you have chosen to make pants with a complicated fly you are also going to use the patter pieces for extra parts.Extra parts for flies

Extra parts 1 and 2 are used to make the short fly while extra parts 3 and 4 are used to make the long zip.

There is also a pattern piece for the waistband.Waistband

          If the provided instructions are not enough for you, you will have to find someone where you live that can show you how to do it.

        Read the links included in “IMPORTANT to read before starting …” section. If these are not enough you will have to ask someone who can show you directly – where you are.

    • susanne says:

      We know it is hard to fit pants to your grandson’s profile but haven’t managed to find a really good solution during the trials we’ve done so far.

    Pls give us more detail on measurement

    • susanne says:

      If you read the instructions available under the heading “IMPORTANT to read before …” you will be able to see how your measurements fit the different sizes. Also, under that heading you have instructions on how to adapt the pattern top fit your body.

      We will upload forms for filling in all your measurements but they will not add very much to the instructions as hese should be enough for you. Our patterns are not individually fitted.To get that you will have to employ the help of a professional tailor or do the job yourself.

    i have always made mens and womens pants and i know how to get measurements bu when i finished sewing the measurement is always short and not fitted especially the seat , do i need to add allowance to the exact measurement i got from the client and how much bigger do i need to add?

    • susanne says:

      Hi,
      I don’t understand if you tried our patterns and they fit badly but in that case:

      They are general patterns for a seated position. It might be that a general pattern does not fit your customer perfectly. In this case – and indeed we recommend it to everybody – you need to adapt our general pattern to fit the personal requirements of you customer. There’s information on how to do this as well as how to use a sample garment to adapt the patterns under the part of the site called Important to read before …

    I have twice made men’s pants and the pockets pull out like they are not flush to the garment. I don’t know why

    • susanne says:

      You’ve encountered one of the most “impossible” problems with pants while seated. The pockets are almost impossible to make so they stay flat. It also is a very personal fit so what type pockets will stay put for one person might pull out for another. You can try making them more shallow or alter the pocket “entrance” to be more like an steep angle against the side seam (look at how pockets in chinoos often are made) but there really is no guarantee that the pockets still will not pull out. You can also try things like velcro or buttons of different kinds to keep the opening together.

      Personally I just don’t sew pockets anymore and instead use a bag attached to the wheelchair or such. If I want the feature I fake them – i.e. have them sewn together.

      Sorry to not be of more help.

  10. Martha Ford says:

    Thank you! Thank you! My 44-year-old son became quadriplegic last year as the result of a car accident. I’ve tried to make him some pants using pajama patterns but they do not look good. So I’m anxious to try your pattern. New pants will be his Christmas present.

    i was in need of making suit for my boy how can i change the measuring it to pices

  12. Rose Fenton says:

    I would like to know how to measure pants from the hips to the crutch specially the back part. How many inches should be added to the crutch so when wearing it after sewn would not be riding high on both front & back. Please & thank you.

    • susanne says:

      Our patterns are adapted so they are sewn on an angle and the back piece is therefore longer than the front. These sewing instructions are made for our adapted pants pattern. I can’t help you as it is impossible for me to know exactly what you want to achieve./ Susanne

    I’ve liked your introduction on the men’s pants, I would like to be sent all the lessons including parts of the trousers and how to do the fitting. Thank you so much.
