I am aiming to emulate the knee breeches on the left, I don't know the image source but it comes from Jeanie's website, Sense and Sensibility.
The most difficult construction element for these pants, is the drop front waist. Its not that difficult, but you do have to concentrate to ensure success, well at least I do lol!
Here are the steps of putting a front fall trouser front together, hope it helps you do yours.
- Attach fall binders and bearers to front of trousers
4. Press your fall bearer to the centre
Here's the breeches completed bar hand sewing.
I forgot to take photos while doing the back of the breeches with the gusset insert, I had a friend pop over and I was so busy chatting and stitching that I forgot, I shall notate it next time I make a pair.
Back of breeches with gusset and pleats to give that 'lovely' baggy bum look!
Now to check for length and fit the legs nice and tight.
Silly fitting photos follow ...
They fit well, so next to add the side button plackets, lacing in the back gusset and all the button holes and buttons.
