This is a sewing tutorial to make a very comfortable pleated straight pants with a flat front waistband and an elastic waistband for the back

How to sew the Pants

Step 1 Cut out the pattern pieces for the body of the pant

Totally to sew the pants you need 4 pieces for the body of the pant, two waistband pieces and 1 1/2 inch wide elastic 

To cut the front pieces of the pants,  take two fabric pieces (length equaling the length of the pants you want (plus 2 inch for the hem and top edge seam allowance minus 2 inch for waistband which negates the whole thing))- width of the pieces should be equal to 1/4 of your hip round plus 2 inch

For the back pieces – the same length as the front pieces ; they will be a little wider – width of the pieces should be equal to 1/4 of your hip round plus 5 inch.

Keep the front pieces right sides together as you mark and cut. Same for the back pieces. This is essential to get mirrored pieces that can be sewn by the middle seam to form the front and back of the pants

Step 4 Sew hem

At this point you can sew the hem of the pants (or do it last, after everything is stitched).

If you are sewing the hem, open the seam allowance and turn down the bottom edge twice, first 1/2 inch and then 1 inch. Press.

Sew in place. As you fold the hem you should ensure that the inner seams will be aligned properly at the crotch – if it does not, adjust the hem accordingly – or else you will have to unpick the seams later.

Stretch the elastic to meet the other end

Fold the waistband over the elastic and top stitch along the edge of the elastic – this keep the elastic in place inside the waistband. You will have to the move the elastic to the back as you stitch – forming the gathered waistband for the back.

Step 8 Form the pleat

Fold and pin in place a pleat on either side of the top edge of the pant – fold 1/2″ and a little more – totaling just short of 1 1/2″ for each fold.

Double check that the front waistband you have matches the front of the pants.

    Hello! I’ve just started to sew my own garments and I love all your tutorials! I want to make this pant but in a high-waisted style. To do that would I just lengthen the distance from the waist to hips and make the pleats (I will probably do darts instead) longer? Reply

      That is right, Clara.

    Hi
    Thank you for the tutorial, I can’t wait to try it out! I love the flat front style, but I’m not that keen on pleats. Do you know if it’s possible to make these pants without the pleats?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi. I have larger than average thighs. Would you suggest I add more space into the pant pieces? Reply
    • Sarina
      Yes, I think so. Can you make a muslin and test or make in stretch fabric
    • Debbie
      Shouldn’t the back from the crotch to waist be longer than the front for a larger rear-end?
    • Sarina

      Hi Debbie
      You are right ; you can go up from A 3/4 to 1 inch on the back pattern

    Good tutorial a always, but pockets are absolutely essential…at least one! Somewhere to keep keys, a phone, some cash or a hanky without having to carry a purse because of no pockets :-). Reply

      I don’t like pockets, personally; however they are pretty easy to add to this pattern.

    Love this step by step.
    Thanks for this simple explanation of how it works.
    (I note that the final pant photo erroneous shows the pleats reversed. )

    • Sarina
      Yes, Maureen. The pleats ought to face each other. I incorrectly pleated it first but then corrected it as I sew. So the final picture is right Sorry

    Wow this straight trouser tutorial looks great! Is there any way to add pockets? Reply
    • Sarina

      Thanks Diana , But that pocket would come on the side seams – for a pant the pocket would have to be cut a little on the top too. The pocket shown in this post would do I think, for her query – sew pajama pants

    • Suzanne-Marie

      Hi, Kristina and Sewguide —
      First of all, I would move the two easing pleats on the front maybe @ 1″ closer to front center seam (I would do this, even without adding pockets, as I think a more forward position better) and then I’d add a pocket into the side seam — or, into both side seams, if you prefer two pockets; either one or two, it’s easy to add pockets:
      Decide what size and shape you want as your finished pocket. Cut out the pocket(s) to size and shape you desire, allowing seam allowance, of course. Sew the pocket itself closed (right sides together) at sides and bottom, leaving open the area at which your hand fits. Sew the side seam(s) of pants to just above and just below the place you’ll insert the pocket (s). Finally, insert into that seam as you close sides of pants, sewing into front and back seam allowances of pants. Press. (Before you close those pants side seams, you may want to do a top stitch on very edge of pocket(s) to help the seam allowances lay flat and look neat and sharp in your finished pants. I would do so.) Your pockets should be nearly invisible, as it’s an on-seam pocket you’ve created.
      Thanks, Sewguide, for creating and sharing this pattern — and, for generously allowing your readers to ask questions and exchange ideas. Great attitude!

    • Harriet Russell
      Thanks, Suzanne-Marie. I thought the pleats looked too close to the side-seams as well, but I’m not an experienced sewist, so wasn’t sure. Also, I saw on the page Diana linked to (thnx) that: “your hip is some 7 inches from your waist so if you want the pocket near the hip you need to place it accordingly.” I’ve been wanting a pattern for some pants just like this. Thanks so much, Sewguide.
    • Sarina

      Hi Harriet
      The placement of the pleats is as per your discretion. You should place it equidistant from the center seam on either side- that is the main thing you should be careful about and that the pleats should face each other. Thanks

    • MaryJune

      Hi
      Thank you so much for the wonderful tutorial. I am a newbie to sewing so I have a little confusion. How did you measure the point AC..10.5 inches. Is it a standard figure or is it calculated as per individual body measurement and if so, than how
      Thanks

    • Sarina

      Hi MaryJune
      AC is taken as standard – you can change as per your measurement – here is an article on taking body measurement

    • Sarina
      Thank you Suzanne for reading and taking the time to comment and answer the question
    • bailey
      Hi! Thank you so much for this tutorial. I’m very new to sewing and I’m confused about the seam allowance. How much room should be between the edge of the fabric and the seam?
    • Sarina

      Hi Bailey
      I leave 1/2 inch seam allowance
