I just finished sewing a pair of wool pants out of black herringbone stretch wool and didn't want to line them. Too lazy, maybe, but I really wasn't sure how to do it. So I ordered a pair of pant liners from and they are great. Now I am going to sew more wool pants as I need them in this cold weather and wear the pant liners! They have lace for trim that can be cut to your desired length, but mine fit perfectly.

I'll have to check them out. I've considered doing this before to. We use to call them pettipants in my day. They were a handy item to have. Thanks for the tip.

Also, you can quickly and easily sew a pant liner that can be used for a complete wardrobe of pants. Use a pattern with an elastic waist and narrow legs. Darts can be pleated or gathered in. This was common practice some years back. Pant liner patterns were available then. The La Fred pants pattern can be used for this purpose. Just eliminate the back zipper.

I happened to order these because I was too lazy to make my own and didn't have a good fbric for them. They work nicely and will use them as a template to make my I would like to tweak the fit a bit. FYI: They ran a bit short this particular brand you have here.

That's a good idea also. La Fred patterns may be scarce as the owner, if I have it right, has died. Of course, using what you bought will do the trick. I'm overwhelmed by Christmas as I had to sew, in a short space of time, two Santa Clause suits, a Mrs. Clause costume plus three lined white/red/gold dresses for her "friends". Your post caught my attention because I will have to add costumes for the coming Christmas. The white fabric I will be using will need pant liners as all of this will end in a stage production. My effort is for a very energetic church youth group that loves doing such things. They found out I can sew, bake a chocolate cake, decorate Christmas trees and purchase (that is, donate), at a moment's notice (all chips were down and backs against the wall), two thousand six hundred lollipops for Santa to give out. So they made me chair-lady of the Christmas Planning Committee. I don't know whether I should be flattered or sit down and cry. However, I don't envision flat lining all those pants that will be needed for the play these youths want to put on. My solution: I will continuously sew pant liners, one after the other. I read here that for on-stage, white apparel should have a white lining with a black lining underneath. Pant liners will be much easier to sew. They are the answer.
