Tutorial: Make a pair of girl’s knit pants, no pattern required

Christine from From an Igloo shows how to make a pair of knit pants for girls.  It’s actually very easy and doesn’t require a pattern, so long as you have a pair of pants that fit that you can trace.  Go to the tutorial.

[Thank you to Ady for sending me a link to this project!]

    Thank you! No one ever explained how to make the pattern quite the way you did, and it FINALLY makes good sense to me! All the pants I’ve tried before have been so wonky. I think this one will work!

    Great tutorial – thank you sew much for sharing!
    Quick question, would you please share retailers that sell quality cotton lycra knits? I find it frustrating to locate a store that sells decent knits.

      Denise, I share your frustration with finding quality knit fabrics. My local stores are hit or miss, and I haven’t gotten brave enough to order any online b/c it’s hard to know about the quality without being able to feel. If I find a good source, I’ll be sure to pass on the information. — Anne

    Thanks for the prompt reply. I share in your frustration shopping for knits at local retailers; their supply pales in creative designs and construction. Last night, however, after researching more links on sewing.craftgossip (I love your site) I came across one knit source: http://www.chezami.com/exp.ja6?file=clearance&pathcode=fabricshop&sessionid=30U1C09TT06828. Chez Ami sells beautiful knits: interlock, jersey, swimwear, cotton lycra, and woven. I discovered Patsy Aiken’s knits on Chez Ami from another reader. Numerous comments highly recommended this site for knits. So, I have not personally ordered knits on-line but I plan to soon. Chez Ami is offering some wonderful looking knits on sale. I am eager to sew knit yoga style pants for my daughters.

    Any other knit sources please share!
    Thanks sew much.
