Trouser Front (Part 1 of 4) - Preparation

The trouser video is in four sections to facilitate quick access for:-
  1. Preparation
  2. Pocket Construction
  3. Fly Front Construction
  4. Waistband Construction 

1. Component Preparation This video show the preparation of all the components used to construct a trouser with a side integral pocket. The pattern is developed in a manner to reduce the the bulk whilst ensuring that only the self fabric (same fabric as the trouser front)is visible when worn. Alternative combinations of developing the pocket may also be employed.

2. Pocket Preparation This pocket is typical of the jean pocket or menswear pockets. This pocket can also be used for skirts. Cut and interline and overlock as indicated.

3. Fly Front Preparation For this particular method of construction you are recommended to first overlock the areas indicated. The fly is developed for ladies wear – right over left. Reverse all the instructions for mens wear or unisex which is left over right.

4. Waistband Preparation The waistband is interlined for extra support. Follow the pressing preparation for a professional finish. You are now ready to begin the construction of the garment.
