Corduroy pants.

What you get when you trace out a pattern based on an existing pair of pants, but forget to include a seam allowance – a pair of pants half a size too small for the wearer. I’ll be trying my hand at another pair just as soon as I put one exchange piece to bed and get cracking on another.

I used bias tape binding for the first time on these pants, but am too lazy to take a picture to show you. I found Angry Chicken’s no-swearing bias tape tutorial very useful, but I still don’t think my binding came out right. Oh well, I don’t have a serger and corduroy needs good hemming, so there’s always the next pair of pants to practise on.

  1. I used the same tutorial for my nephew&niece. For me, I forgot to note that I need to have enough allowance for the hips. But i made it a bit bigger so it can fit – just need time to finish it off and make another one for the sister. Cannot have one without the other for these two (a twin but separated by 11 months).
