Hey Guys, welcome to my youtube channel RMG
Pattern Making 16 Today I am going to teach you
Drafting The Patterns Draw a frame first.
start by drawing a vertical line that corresponds to the outside
seam length of the pants. Draw a horizontal line at the top of the
vertical line. this is the waist line of the pants.
Draw a horizontal line at the top bottom of vertical line.
this is the cuff line of the pants. Measure down from the waist line
a distance equal.a horizonatal line. to the abdomen height and draw
This is the abdomen line. Measure down from the waist line
a distance equal. to the hip height and draw a
horizontal line.This is the hip lne. Measure down from the waist line
a distance equalThis is the crotch line. to the crotch height and draw
a horizontal line. Find the point midway between
the crotch line. and the cuff line. Draw the
horizontal knee line 6cm above this point.Front Piece
waist and Dart Divide the waist circumference
(+ ease)by 8.on the waist line. from the pants’center lnie.
measure this distance to the left Mark this point as the center
front pointof the waist. Divide the waist circumference
(+ease)8 and add 3cm. On the waist line,measure this
distance to the right from the
pants’ center line.Mark this point as
the side front point of the waist.
Of the extra 3 cm,+2 cm is for the dart and +1cm is to move the side
seam 1cm towards the back to prevent them from showing.
The side point is raised by 1 cm. On the waist line,Measure 4.5 cm to
the right from the pants. center line and start the front
dartfrom there. Make the dart 2 cm wide. The dartextends
from the waist line to the abdomenline. raw the right side of the dart so
that it forms a right angle where it meets the abdomen
line.Hip subtract 2cm. Divide the hip circumference
(+ease)by 8 and on the hip line,measure this
distance to the left from the
pants’ center line.Mark this point as
the center front point of the hip Divide the hip circumference
(+ease)by 8 and add 2 cm on the hip line, measure this distance to the
right from the pants’center line. Mark this point as the side front
point of the hip.Crotch Draw a vertical line from the
center hip point downwards to the crotch line
and mark this point. From the marked point,measure
x-1 cm to the left and mark. Mark tis point, as the tip of
the front crotch curve, X is calculated by dividing the
hip cireumference(+ease) by 20. knee and cuffDivide the desired knee
circumference by 4 and subtract 1 cm.on the knee line,
measure this distance to the
left and to the right from the pants’ center line. Mark these points as
the knee points of the front pant. Divide the desired cuff circumference by 4 and subtract 1 cm.
on the cuff line,measure this distance to the left and to the right from the pants’
center line.Mark these point as the cuff points of the front pant
now you are ready to draft the front piece pattern.Follow the the
points that you have marked according to the above instructions.
if the difference of the waist and
abdomen/hip circumference is a lot, there may
be a disturbing anlgle at the side seam at the
abdomen line.in such a case round the line a
bit outwards between the crocth and the knee
not marked in the picture. Draft the facing for the zipper,
3 cm wide and 18-20 cm high(according to the
length of the zipper you are going to use,
at the top of the front pant’s
center line. Back Piece Drafttthe back piece
pattern in the same frame with the front piece
waist point of the center back and the side back seam Draw a small rectangle, 1.5 cm wide
and x-1.5 cm high to the left
starting at the top of the pants’center line
drawn in red in the picture. Mark the top left corner of this
rectangle as the waist point of the back center seam.
Divide the waist circumference by 4, add 2.5 cm and subtract 1 cm.
trace this distance from the previous point toward the waist line at side rised
by 1 cm as in the front Drown in cyan in the picture bleow.of the
distance +2.5 cm is for the dart and-1cm is to move the side seam backward
The corresponding amount was added to the front waist
Mark the intersection of this line and the waist line raised by 1 cm,
as for the front as the waist point of the back side seam.
Hip points of the center back side seam. Draw another rectangle,x+1 cm wide and x-1.5cm high,to the left
from the intersection of the hip line and the pants’center line.Mark
the top left cornner of this rectangle as
the hip point of the back center seam. Divide the hip circumference by 4. Trace this distance from the
previous point towards the hip line at side drawn in blue in the picture below. Mark the intersection of this line as the hip point of the back
side seam Back crotch Measure a distance of x-1cm
to the left from the tip of the front
crotch curve and 1-1.5cm downwards from it.
Mark this point as the tip of
the back crotch curve X is calculated
by dividing the hip circumference (+ ease)by 20.
THE KNEE AND THE CUFF POINT OF THE BACK PANT Mark these point
2cm to the left and to the right from the corresponding
points of the front pant. Now you are ready to draft the back
piece pattern Follow the points that you have
