Sewing Pants With Complicated Fly
This is how the pants will look after you finished sewing the fly and attaching the waistband.
These are the front pieces to the pants with the curved line marked out by using dress makers chalk or removable pencil.
Lay the zip, front side down, on top of left front piece, right side facing. Lay the extra part 2 on top of the zip with the folded side towards the side seam. Line up the edges and attach the three parts by stitching. If, you have trouble with this step because the pieces keep moving, you can hand sew the zip into position first and then sew with the machine.
Turn to inside and carefully open flaps, making sure you do not dislodge the pins. Attach the zip to the SINGLE layer of facing (piece 1) making sure piece 2 is folded out of the way.
‘Turn pants to outside. Top stitch the curved line, making sure that the flap 2 is out of the way. This joins the flaps and give the fly its style.
Now fold piece 2 over and join it with a few stitches in the bottom corner.
Line up the pants with the right sides facing. Sew the side seams.
Line up the inside leg seams and sew., You may want to do a couple of extra rows at the crotch for re-enforcement.
Attach the unfolded side (B) edge to the top of the pants, right sides of the fabric facing each other. Stitch on. Leave 1 cm seam allowance at each edge. If the waistband is too long, then cut off the excess. Fold up the waistband and press seams up towards the waistband.
Fold waistband right sides together and sew edges.
Then turn right side out and press well, being sure to pull out the corners.
