Female Pencil trouser has become a modern fashion that every lady wants to wear. It is not just to belong to the class of modern or up-to-date- ladies but to enjoy the classic outlook of the trouser design.
Though normal female trouser offers great look, the pencil trouser gives more shape and offers ease to movements associated with actions such as jumping. Besides that, the pencil female trouser unveils your figure-eight and makes you look taller in appearance.
Recently, most fashion and designers started coming out with various types of female pencil trousers that can make it easy for ladies to select any type based on choice. Some are being made with jeans materials while some are elastic plain materials with divas colors. However, the cost of already-made female pencil trouser has made it impossible for every lady to afford. And some actually find it hard to get their fitted size in the market or see the type they like. All these made some ladies with little skill on tailoring seek avenue to make their own female pencil trouser.
To help such ladies, I decided to putdown this post. This post will assist you to:
- Take accurate measurement from any fabric material on the making of your female pencil trouser.
- Get a complete understanding on how to cut any female trouser design.
- Cut out your measured paths correctly.
- Make a replica of the already-made shapes.
- Accurately sew your trouser shapes together to produce the trouser you want.
In regard to the above possible learning outcome from this training, you will need the following;
- A marking chalk
- A straight ruler or stick
- Measuring tape
- The fabric your want to use in making your female pencil trouser
Assuming you have got everything listed above, you can proceed with the next steps.
Carefully spread out the fabric you want to use. Take one leg measurement of maximum circumference of the trouser at the crotch and provide extra allowance let’s say 2inch by using a tape to measure your crotch especially the backside. From the circumference obtained, mark out the width from the fabric you have spread.
Take the length measurement for your pencil trouser starting from the waist to the ankle and give allowance of at least 2inch in addition to the length you have measured. At this stage, you can be able to cut out the portion you will use to make your trouser from the fabric by now. To do that, use a straight wood or ruler to join the width and length of the measured areas marked with chalk and cut it out.
Assuming you are making a trouser that has 37inch length and 10inch width at the crotch level, your total fabric you cut out from the step two should be measuring 39inch length and 12inch width. Next is to proceed with actual measurement to form the pencil trouser from the material you have cut out.
Use a ruler and measure about 8inch by 3inch or 9inch by 3inch at the front section of the trouser crotch and join the two lines with a curve. Note that the length you take here will depend on your crotch length. The next thing to do is to cut out this portion from the fabric. This portion is the area that will carry zip or buttons after sewing. You have just marked out one leg front section.
To get your side section, measure from your waist to the widest portion of your high by drawing tape from the hip to the waist. assuming you got 9inch mark it on the fabric with a chalk. Measure from side to side of your waist section and divide the value into two for the measurement of the waist of the one leg front section you are making. Measure from the zip area you cut out the 8inch by 3inch to the side section to et your waist section. Assuming your front waist section is 15inch then measure out 8or 9inch from the front and stop at the 8 or 9inch.
Draw a slant line linking the place you marked on the waist to the place you marked on the thigh. Then use a scissors to cut it off.
The next thing is to take the circumference of your upper thigh and divide the value into two. Mark out the value just below the crotch section. Take a circumference of your lower thigh and divide the value into two then mark it at the appropriate location on the fabric. Take the circumference of your kneel and divide it into two and mark the value at the appropriate location on the fabric. Then take the circumference of your ankle and divide it into two and mark it on the appropriate location on the fabric.
Use your straight ruler or wood to join all the marked locations you made of the fabric and cut it out with scissors. At this stage you have cut out the front section of the pencil trouser. Remember to fold the main fabric before starting the whole steps otherwise the portion you will cut out will be just one leg front section instead of two.
Place the portion you have cut out into another folded section of the main fabric and carefully trace the paths of the cut out to make a replica of it and remember to add enough allowance at the back section.
Position all the cut outs accordingly on your sewing machine and sew the necessary paths together. Then test the trouser for fitness after ironing it.
