How to Make Bias Pants
These bias pants from Threads #166 are quick to make, have novel seaming, are to some extent self-fitting, and are comfortable to wear.
University of North Carolina, Greensboro, associate professor Melanie Carrico launched her venture into making bias pants the year Threads challenged members of the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals (ASDP) to design a no-waste garment. The instructions that follow focus on making the pants without pockets, but you can add them if you desire. These are nothing like sewing regular pants, and they won’t replace your favorite pants pattern, but if you’re looking for a fun, new, and easy way to get the benefits of bias in a pair of pants, you’ll love this approach. Make a muslin first to get the hang of how these go together. Then grab a drapey fabric from your stash and give this pattern a go.
