Asalam u alaiqum (peace be upon you) Beautiful people 
How you doing! I hope you are doing well. 
In my previous post I shared basics of cutting and stitching any dress/Asian Kameez, you can read here Cutting and stitching of any dress/Asian Kameez. In this post, I am making simple and easy one way of trouser...
Trousers can make in a number of different fabrics, including wool, tweed, linen, crepe, jersey and denim. They can be slightly hard to create because they require many accurate measurements and some dedicated time to design them. In this post, I will share a very simple and easy one way of making trouser.
I am working on white cotton fabric. I iron fabric right side inwards, fold the cloth half way through lengthwise. This gives me four layers…
First, I like to mark waist measurement plus 1 to 2-inches seam allowance (normally waist should be four to five inches loose on trouser then your actual waist measurement) I like to keep a bit loose that is why I only add 2-inches extra to my waist measurement then added seam allowance...Length measurement...I draw a straight line on the length mark then I marked 2-inches seam allowance (for elastic band) and cut off the extra fabric...Marking a point (front/back)...
(From the same cut mark) The hip/buttocks measurement plus 1-inch seam allowance...The ankle measurement plus 1 inch seam allowance...Joining the marks (inside leg)I marked two and half inch ankle seam allowance (for folding inside)Once I am done with the measurements, I cut out the trouser in shape...I start cutting with the scissors from the ankles, inside leg then towards hips…Marking a point on the ankles...One more thing that I want to share is this left over fabric from inside leg (kind of in triangle shape) normally some people throw it in bin but I like to keep it. This strip of fabric I can make stretchy stripes, which is flexible to move around when sewing. I mostly use to stitch round necklines or anything with the curves...Since the hip measurement (towards waist) was same size as the fabric in width, I did not cut it... Normally for better fitting, it's only front two pieces (towards the crotch), suppose to cut in arbitrary position (if the waist measurement is 5 inches loose then actual size it is better to cut front pieces)...(The cuts I made on waist and ankles) I fold and iron the cloth inwards to keep in place...To finish the edges, I turn half an inch inwards and iron. It makes a lot easy to stitch...
I unfold the legs and lay them one on top of the other (so the hemming faces outwards). I line them up and sew along the two shorter sides that stretch from waist to the groin points…The waist (in folded section) I sew it to the body of the trouser, (in any point) Leaving space about 2-inches for elastic band to go through (around the waist of the trouser)This is how it end up looking...Inside of the trouser legs. Laying out trouser so that the legs fold in half. I sew the long seam starting at one ankle and finishing at the other (I do not stop at the groin)I now have a complete pair of trousers. Just need to hemstitch the bottom of the trouser and add elastic. Normally I sew elastic band with the trouser but that can be complicated and I wanted to share the easy and simple way of making the trouser...After hand stitch the bottom picture...I use to think I am better in explaining when I am writing but somehow I realise after watching my videos that I do not explain enough when writing. Do not forget to watch a video. I hope you find this helpful and get to make your own trouser. Do let me know on Twitter annie_omar if you ever make it or leave a comment on my video (: Positive vibes x!
