• Mother’s pants sundress

    Preliminary training

    First you need to wash your trousers and iron them. Then cut it along the inner step seam. If you trim the upper part (where the pockets and zipper are sewn), we will get two relatively flat webs with a seam in the middle.

    There is no need to dissolve it, we will cut the product so that it still serves. Construction of the pattern It is quite simple. In the usual case, it could be painted directly on the fabric. But we do not cut it on a flat canvas, but on an already used one, so it’s more convenient to work with a paper pattern.


    Width below = waist girth + 2 cm. Height and width of the upper part do at will, measuring on the child from the waist line up. Side seam to armhole = about 5 cm. This is for a child about 110 cm tall. We draw an arm line with an arc, smoothly connecting the side seam to the top of the product.

    This detail is the same for the front and back. Width = waist circumference + 2 cm. Part height = product length + 2 cm (for bottom processing). For the patterns, you can use any paper, even old newspapers. Or stick together several sheets of white A-4 paper.


    1. We apply the paper pattern to the seamy side so that the middle of the part coincides with the seam on the fabric. You can cut out the top part as a unit with the skirt.

    But at the same time you need to see if there are any scuffs on the front side in this place. If there are problems with the fabric, the skirt will have to be cut separately, and then sewn to the details of the front and back. 2. Paper pattern pinned by tailors pins. Outline it with a pencil or soap, if the fabric is dark. Mark seam allowances of 1 cm. Cut.

    Measure their length on a child. Width is about 2.5 cm. The edge at the sewing point to the back is slightly widened. In this case, two straps in width should correspond to the width of the top of the back.


    When starting to sew, you should first buy a ready-made slanting tape in the store or carve it out of the remnants of the fabric.
    • We fold the details of the front and back to the front. We break the seams with tail pins.
