pedal pusher help
I’m looking for a summer casual pedal pusher pattern. i am hoping to find one with no zipper and maybe one or two waistline buttons? Some elastic is o.k. but the baggy waist look is not what I’m searching for. Pockets would be a plus. THANKS
Could you use a pants pattern that has the closure in the left pocket.? That would close with only a button or two.
Thanks for the reply...and yes that sounds like an option I would be open to. Is there such a pattern or are you just clever and make it up on your own?
You can do this with any pant pattern that has a side pocket. Sew the pocket extensions to the side seams as usual. The right side is sewn up as a complete pocket as usual. The left side is sewn up leavng the far inside edge of the pocket open (not sewn shut) for aprx 6 inches. The waist band needs to be cut about 4 or 5 inches longer than usual and is sewn on with the left front pocket extension folded back along the seam line and the left side back extended out and sewn to the waistband. When you finish the waistband with hooks or buttons you overlap the waist band so the pocket looks closed and flat. It may take an additional button on the inside to hold the extra waistband on the extension in place, This eliminates the need for a zipper and is actually a little adjustable fo those of us who gain and lose a little at the waist once in a while. I hope this is a litttle clearer than mud. Here's another idea for Threads to cover" if they havent already..
Thank you for the instructions. They are not too confusing to read, so I'm sure as I do them step by step it will work just fine. I appreciate the help.
