Interfacing: See pattern layout. Interface outer waistband pieces. Also interface the pocket bands.
• Fold pleats in front trouser pieces in direction of arrows and baste. Stitch back darts and press toward centre back.
• Stitch centre front seam, approx. 15 cm long, beginning at upper edge. Press seam open.
• Hip yoke pockets: Fold bands in half lengthwise, right side facing out, and press. Baste long edges of each band together to pocket opening edge of front trouser piece. Stitch pocket pieces right sides together with pocket opening edges, over bands. Turn pocket pieces upand stitch to seam allowances, close to seams. Turn pocket pieces to inside, turn bands up, and press. Pin pocket opening edges of front trouser pieces to side hip yokes so that band joining seam lies on abutting line. Stitch pocket pieces together. Stitch front edges of pocket pieces right sides together (centre seam). Press seam allowances open. Baste pockets to wrong side of front trouser pieces.
• Stitch right side seam and inside leg seams. Press seam allowances open. Stitch remaining centre front seam and centre back seam as continuous seam. In back, press allowances of the centre seam open, from upper edge to beginning of crotch curve. Do not press seam allowances flat along crotch curve.
• Stitch right side seams on waistband pieces (seams on inner and outer
waistband unit as mirror images). Stitch interfaced outer waistband unit to upper edge of trousers. Press seam allowances of joining seam onto waistband.
• Sew invisible zip to slit edges, from upper edge of waistband to slit mark. Stitch left side seam up to zip.
• Face upper edge of waistband, see style 136A, but pin and baste instead of using paper clips and glue to hold edges and allowances in place. Do not topstitch waistband. Work from right side of trousers to stitch along joining seam, catching inside edge of waistband.
• Turn hem allowances to inside. Work from right side of fabric and use the twin needle to stitch each hem 4 cm from lower edge.
These are on my to make list so I'd love to see a review if you make them up.
