I was asked to make trousers for our nephew out of these car themed fabrics. I drafted the pattern myself. I made one pair first sent it over to see whether the fit was good before making the others, I didn’t want to risk making several with a bad fit. I think that the result is fine, I don’t love the style but they’re not for me so my opinion doesn’t really count.
The construction is pretty simple. The waist is a fold over ribbed knit, the body is a gathered jersey to make them baggy and the cuffs are made in the same ribbing as the waist band. Most of the fabric is organic cotton with 6% elastane. I think that 6% elastane is a good amount for jersey it makes the fabric nice and stretchy without being floppy.
Would you be interested in a sewing pattern for these?
