Sewing the pants “Vicky”

The waistband is the biggest challenge in this project. Whether you use an elastic band in the waistband or add eyelet patches with a ribbon for tying is up to you. The advantages of eyelet patches are manifold: you no longer have to hammer metal eyelets into the beautiful fabric, they are easy to attach, do not tear out of the fabric even after repeated use and even if the eyelets do fall out, the patches are easy to replace.

The simple cut of the trousers makes them quick and easy to sew. If you don’t have a coverlock to finish the hems, we recommend using the elastic SeraFLEX thread from Mettler. Even straight stitch seams are easily elasticized with it! And since the pants have a wide leg, you don’t need much elasticity at the hem.
