DIY Clothes - Pants (2)

See DIY Clothes - Pants (1)

I am almost done with the pants I am making..     

wanted to add a back welt pocket to the pants which the pattern didn't include and am very happy that I could add one successfully!   Off course, I got all the help I need from googling..  :)
A good tutorial site on how to make the welt pocket: 

I used the third tutorial on this page but the size of welt is not included in the tutorial, however the information is provided in the below discussion: 

I haven't tried creating the pants pattern myself, but if you would like to try, here is a site with tutorial on how to create one:

AND I found free patterns for download here:

Here is a free pattern & sewing instruction for a wrap around pants (the Thai style):

DIY Clothes - Pants (1)

What have I been up to?

With lots of encouragement and inspiration from Ayuni, my sewing buddy met in FB, I finally started sewing a pair of pants.. something I wanted to do for a long time.

I bought the patterns from a site recommended by Ayuni:

They have free patterns there for you to try out if you are not sure.   Below are free patterns:

You need to order the free patterns and they will then send you an email which gives you the instruction of printing the patterns.

I bought pattern Simplicity 5443 and to assemble all the A4 pages to make up the patterns, there were more than 100 pages for this pattern set...  huhu...  so much work..   It has a top, a jacket, a pair of pants, tie & hairband...

A4 papers all over my living area floor:

Even the S size of the pants is too big, so I have follow the ratio of the sizes and scale it down 1 size...

I have the pattern cut, fabric cut and now sewing in progress..... 

Bye now...
