Dylan’s “Party Pant”

I mentioned earlier in the month that I had recieved my first order for “Party Pant”. It was on Thursday that I completed the finishing touches – drawstring and hem and gave the “Party Pant” to Dylan for his birthday. He was rather delightled with his unique present!

A group of us were out last night having a curry in Brick Lane, London and I was happy to see that Dylan was wearing his very cool and colourful “Party Pant”. I just had to get a snap shot of me and Angus with Dylan.

I used a Simplicity trousers pattern – unisex, multi size drawstring and elastic waist with 2 front pockets. For the construction, as I do not own an overlocker I used French seams throughout on these “Party Pant” so no unfinshed fabric edges can be seen.

In August I hope to provide a photo tutorial of using french seams in everyday garment construction – A french seam is a seam that is stitched twice, first on the right side of the fabric and then on the wrong side, enclosing the first seam.
