Hi there,

Love the pants! Forgive my absolute sewing ignorance...I am brand new to all of this! The step where you sew up the crotch confuses me--the curves of the shirt where the sleeves used to be are going in different directions, no? How do you sew them up without one of the pant legs going all wonky and sideways?

Thanks for the help!!

@byrdstarr: If you look in the comments on the first page, there's sort of a tutorial on how to sew up the crotch. This is my first tutorial, and I've never been good with words, I hope you'll understand that because I can't quite break anything down to nice and simple if I understand it when it's complex. I'm sorry! I'm only sixteen, forgive me..

Thank you for the tut!  I'm pretty new at sewing and haven't been brave enough to attempt pants yet, but this looks so easy!  (And if I mess up, I'm ruined an old t-shirt instead of fabulous new fabric!)

It is definitly okay to post your pictures! I would love to see your pants! I handsew T.T so it takes me forever to make a pair. I made a pair last night, so I'll post the pictures as soon as I can... I'm at school at the moment. I really like the pair I made, but it's a button up and I measured wrong so the buttons aren't functional. I really wanted them be.

Thank you for all the comments! If there's something that still not clear, just tell me and I'll do my best to clear it up for you.
I'm so happy that I don't have to cut through the image anymore!!! I'm sorry, I'm just so excited about that. It always made me sad when I thought about making a pair but didn't want to cut up something so cute.

Ah! I've been looking for a tutorial like this for a long time! Thank you for posting this!

So, tonight I went ahead and took an old nightgown and tried the same technique to preserve the image on the front. Only.... when I sewed all of the seams up, I realized I'd made a HUGE error... I can't even get the pants on past my thighs, the waist is that tiny. >.<

With the old LiveJournal tutorial, I would have been able to add a 1-2 inch wide strip of fabric to the sides to help increase the waist/hip size... But with this technique, I really can't because the image is on the side.

Unless.. you have any ideas or tips for what I can do to increase the waist/hip size so I can actually get the pants on?

I know this is after the fact, but was the nightgown made from a stretch knit?  If not, maybe the fabric didn't have enough give to it?  Maybe try making the waistband from a different t-shirt that has some stretch to it.  Good luck.  Smiley

I have made these pants before and didn't like the design half on each leg.

You are brilliant (=

I know what I'm doing in the morning!
