What's up DIY Fam!
I have a pattern tutorial today in which I show how to make trouser patterns for women from scratch.
I honestly forgot to add notches on the centre front & centre back of the pattern 🙈I will add them when I use this pattern in the future.
However, I hope you enjoy the video & learn a thing or two 😉
Please Kim how did you get the crotch length you said =11 + 11 divide by 4 I am lost please can any one put me on track. Also can I get my crotch correct by dividing my hip measurement by 4. Also how did you get the 2.75 , where you said 11 +2.75 Please help.
Oh my gosh!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!! Your videos are some of the best sewing tutorials I've seen on Youtube. I've been looking for videos that explain the complicated process of drafting patterns in an easily understandable way and your videos are an absolute godsend on this front! Much love from Australia 💜
Thanks for the videos
I have a personal question which is off the box.... How do u record ur YouTube videos, with camera or phone, is someone holding it for u or u do it urself... Have just been wondering cos I want to learn how to make YouTube videos too
Thanks for the reply in advance
You're amazing! Thank you do much for your attention to detail when you make these tutorials. I can't wait to get the ball rolling on my technique. I just learned how to sew and watching your videos has inspired me to start making my own patterns from scratch because it looks easier than what comes in the pack and this way I'm sure it will always fit me 🙌🏿
I love this tutorial so much. It's easier to understand than others. You are such a great teacher. I am going to try it and let you know how it turns out.
Thanks and keep the good tutorial going.
Hi Kim , don't worry with the person who makes ugly & rude comment's they have their own issues, your doing great ,I hope you open your own fashion & designing school, u would make a great teacher, I get mix up with the cm, inches is easier for me to understand but I knw you'll do it in cm & inches soon God bless you ,this is from my heart, No weapon from against you would not prosper .
Simple but very nicely explained you r gifted as a teacher. Normally pants drafting is very intimidating and confusing. You are doing a great service sharing your knowledge keep it up. Yes I subscribed!!
ohshitttt thats the exact fit i wanted aahhh
its hard to find plus size pants like this bc when the waist and thighs go up suddenly they add beaucoup ankle space and the fit around my lower legs looks sloppy
but now i can draft one from my measurements omg i hope this worksss i have a beautiful mustard woven fabric and its a lil more opaque than sheer shiffon and its perfect for these kind of trousers. i just want it to work so baddd
uusally when i draft my own patterns i end up with hella mistakes. im getting better but copying plus size clothes is a hassle bc usually they have stretch and when they dont i have trouble adjusting the fit for new clothes ugh
Love your tutorials, they've helped me a great deal. And your method is simple and super cool but how can I determine how many centimeters to open the back slash. Like you said the bigger the bum the more you open the slash. But what if the person is quite small. Like a size 6. Howmany centimeters would I open ? Please reply I feel like you're the only one who can help me. Infact if you don't mind here's my email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello lovely sister, l have finally constructed my trouser pattern,but I want to modify it into palazzo how do I go about it. One more thing I like ur natural hair, my hair is so strong that I can't keep mine natural. Pls whisper to me how can I reduce the stiffness .
Hi Kim, I’m not a good tailor, but I’m passionate about sewing very much. You will not believe, that I have spoiled 4-5 pants of mine. But when I watched your tutorial video - “How to draft women pant “, so I got hope that this time I’ll make it correct. So please I have a question that whatever formulas you have used in drafting this pant. Are they applicable for plus size too? Thank you very much and I’ll be waiting for your reply, Bye now!
Safia Ahmed I think she’s saying that if you take all the measurements referred to in the beginning and plug them in where she has mentions it should fit. All she said was that the original pattern was from a book. There is no need to be rude.
Kim Dave - Hi, instead of answering my question you are referring me to follow some others book? WHY? You can’t solve my problem? You called so yourself a designer. I have asked a very simple question......!
Hi! Tutorials are really easy to understand, but it would be nice see these trousers from start to end. (Trousers with pockets, with zipper). Yes, I watched video with pockets and with zipper. But I'm confused. I made pattern and I want see how you sew all pieces together. (All trousers) Do you start with zipper before you sew front and back pattern together? I am sorry if anyone already asked this or my english is too bad to understand 😀 I am really beginner at this.
Thanks so much for these tutorials. I tried this trousers, the pocket n the waist band n zipper n it was great,the funniest thing is am not a Seamstress I was just going tru videos when I came across your designs n I decided to learn how to use a machine n give it a try n to my greatest surprise I sew a beautiful trouser like a pro in a day n on my first try. you are my fashion guru..thanks a million 😘 😘
You are welcome my dear. Sometimes you look at people's negative comments and you feel sorry for them. No word of advice, encouragement or counsel. In a world full of greed and selfishness, you're a ray of sunshine (among others of course!)
Hey Kim, I never even imagined how ladies trousers are made! And here you are making my dream come true 😆 I am definitely going to make one for myself because I am sick and tired of altering my clothes
