Sewing pants with simple fly
FRONT AND BACK PIECE
Sew the tucks in the back piece.
On the front piece sew zigzag stitch over the edges of both flaps (separately, not together) and using a removable pencil or dress makers chalk, mark the curve on the front of the left hand side.
Turn the pants to the inside and carefully open the flaps (you should have the remaining ‘unattached’ flap to the left side with zip pinned to its top). Make sure you do not dislodge the pins on the outside. Attach the zip to the SINGLE layer of the left flap. The zip is now attached to the right side of the front piece (including right flap) and the left flap of the fly.
Attach the unfolded side (B) edge to the top of the pants, right sides of the fabric facing each other. Make sure that the 5 cm overlap is on the left side. Stitch on. 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.
NOTE! Corners are shown cut in the picture but you should cut the corners AFTER you have sewn the edge. Top stitch over waistband, joining it totally to the pants.
