make your own pants tutorial round up

I’ve done a skirt roundup, and a top roundup, so I the next obvious step is pants. Now I just have to find the time to make some (but I think I still need to start with a skirt first!)

While there are hundreds of tutorials on the interwebs for kids pants, I found it difficult to find adult pants tutorials. Some of the kids ones can be translated into adults ones though, I’m sure.

The Katherine Hepburn pants tutorial is unfortunately incomplete, but it does show how to take your measurements and how to draft your own pants pattern. Couple this info with the links on how to alter pants patterns below and you can make endless pants designs.&
