Finally the perfect pants for children! Because surely we want something comfortable and play-friendly at the same time as being stylish? Tyra & Todd has a relaxed fit with pleats at the front, and looks just as good on boys as girls.
With a simple elastic waistband and no pockets, the pants are a quick project, but for those of you who want to work a little extra with the pants, we have included several nice details such as front and/or back pockets. In addition to a simple waistband, you can also choose a paperbag waistband with or without sewn-in ties. The leg ends can either be hemmed, folded up or sewn with cuffs.
Difficulty level: 2/3
Knitted fabric with 20-60% stretch and medium to medium strength in weight (approx. 200-340 gr/m2). We recommend e.g. college, jogging, french terry, cotton jersey, ponte, knitted jacquard, as well as trouser fabrics with stretch. The trousers can be sewn in fabric with a drop and fabric without a drop. If you are sewing the variant with a leg cuff, use cuff fabric for the leg cuff - this requires a fabric with very good stretch. Please pre-wash the fabrics before you cut them out, knitted fabrics usually shrink on the first wash.
The fabric allowance above is not exact but should be seen as an approximate guideline. It applies to unwashed (not pre-shrunk) fabrics with a width of 150 cm. All pattern parts are included. If you are going to buy new fabric for your project, please add a few dm just in case. If you want to be sure of being able to match the pattern, you also need to count on extra fabric.
Elastic to the waistband. About 3 cm shorter than the child's waist. See width and approximate length in the table:
Possibly thin spacer, with or without stretch. If you are sewing the trousers with a paperbag waistband and have a fabric with a lot of fall, so it feels a bit loose, you can use spacers to make the waistband more stable.
GOOD TO HAVE:
Glue pen and elastic threader (or safety pin).
And of course: measuring tape, fabric scissors, needles/clips, iron, and sewing machine with thread whose color matches the fabric and a suitable needle for the fabric. A stretch needle is usually recommended for knitted fabrics.
Choose the size in width based on the child's waist and leg width. To ensure that the pants are also a good length, measure the child's inseam measurement and length. If there is a difference between these, we recommend mixing sizes (see sewing description). We do not recommend going up a size on the width as the pants already have a loose fit. The inner leg measurement is measured from the crotch down to the floor when the child stands up. All measurements are in cm.
