I want to make the monkey pants from this pattern: http://steffmade.de/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/monkeypantsschnitt.pdf

I can't figure out the seam allowance though. Google translate tells me "wenig Nahtzugabe" means "little seam allowance" but it's not clear to me what that means on this pattern. Is that thickness of gray what is included already for seam allowance? Or is the fat gray line drawn by the crotch show where the seam allowance should be? Or are they telling ME to add a little seam allowance?

TIA!
Angi

The grey lines shown on the front and back of the pants shows along which lines your seam allowance should be smaller (e.g. 1/4 inch). No seam allowances are included in the pattern, you have to add them yourself everywhere.

The grey shaded areas on last two pattern pieces shows you where you can interface to stabilize those areas.

Hope that helps!
