Pants might seem like a great challenge, but they are actually pretty easy to make from scratch. The measurements are perfect when you use a pair of pants that fit you as a pattern.

What You'll Need:

  • A pair of pajama pants or jeans that fit you just right.
  • Two pieces of fabric. They need to be 5" taller than your pants and 2" wider than your pants.
  • Measuring tape
  • Chalk
  • Scissors [recommended scissors]
  • Sewing machine or sewing kit
  • A drawstring or strip of elastic
Once you have gathered all your materials, we can get started
