1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Lining is too big! on: November 28, 2008 04:14:36 PM
Hi all,

I'm new and thank goodness I found here because I asked this question on Yahoo answers and no one answered. Well. I make clothing for my children. I am making my son pants that are lined/reversible. I thought I was really big and bad and made the pattern for the pants myself.  I thought making the pants pattern reversible would be as simple as just cutting 2 of the front and pack pattern pieces and then joining them together.

Well, all goes well until I begin to sew them together at the waist and pants leg hems. The lining/reverse side ends up being too big for the outer layer.  I end up having a pucker or gather of about 1 inch at some point along the waistline and a bit smaller amount at the hems. This is fine if I don't mind the homesewn look/mistake on the inside and just forget about the pants being reversible. They look nice on one side. I want them to be reversible and I want them to look equally nice on both sides. What am I doing wrong? How do I get rid of the extra fabric on the reverse/lining side?

Thanks to all who answer.
