I bought some cotton flannel the other day and dyed it purple. I planned to make a pair of pants out of it but now I'm worried that it might wear out too quickly. I was thinking of having a double layer of fabric so the pants would be warmer/not wear out. The idea of lined pants may be a strange one, but I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work. Then again I've never made pants before. Thoughts on this idea would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

While I have not *made* them, I have *worn* lined pants. So has my dad and husband. We live in Wisconsin. Lined pants are nice! I don't think it should be too problematic. Have you lined things before?

I can't see why there would be a problem with lined pants.
Also, there is no such thing as a stupid question.

I haven't ever lined anything before. But hey, there's a first time for everything.


Thanks for the feedback.  Smiley

Well, if you need assistance, don't hesitate to PM me. Lining is pretty basic-- you just cut two sets of whatever you're making and put them together. What style of pants are you making? Loose ones will probably be easier to line.

Its not really any specific style... I have a pattern but I figure I can modify it. I want them to be fitted around the thighs and bum and loose (flared?) at the knees.

I can't imagine that flannel will wear out too fast though, look at other pants that you have and see where they are wearing, often its at the top of the thighs, lining won't prevent this as they wear from the outside in.
