Hi fellow crafters!
I am currently finishing a military short sleeved jacket for my husband and he is dying to have some matching trousers.
Thing is I have no clue about how to make trousers. They would have to be rather cut like usual tailored trousers, not skin tight.
I was thinking about making at first some kind of latex shorts to which i would later on attach some "legs". So it'd be easier to try to find the good fitting without struggling with loads of fabric at first.
What do you think of this idea? By any chance, would any of you have some shorts pattern you'd be willing to give me? I can share my patterns as well and I would put some HOW TO MAKE garments with my techniques if I had some schemes on my comp instead of big piles of patterns drawn on old newspaper.
Then, do you think I could make some proper trousers without using any zipper? I have mastered the way of including a zipper but I fear it would complicate the pattern a lot. Would some zipper-free trousers fit and hold properly?
Thanks for your advice!
