DIY Houndstooth Wide Leg Pants

Happy Friday!!!

On last night I created yet another pair of wide leg pants.  You may get tired of seeing it, but I am not tired of sewing it yet :).

I used pattern M6756 (my go to) and drafted this shorts pattern into pants.  If you would like to see how I drafted these pants, please visit my youtube channel Needlesandfashion (no spaces).

I got this houndstooth from JoAnns on the red tag isle for $7 a yard.

I cover the drafting of the pants in my DIY custom Jumpsuit tutorial in part 2.


I hope you all are planning on having a wonderful weekend because I am!!


I leave you with my favorite song and dance!!! HAPPY!!!  Be sure yo join my FB group Needles and Fashion and let me know if you make these pants!

  2. You rock that pant, fits so perfectly.

  3. I am obsessed with your pants!!

    1. Thank you! I wear that pattern out! Probably my favorite!

  4. I love your pants!!!! And I enjoyed your videos. I have one question about your waistband. Is it made according to the pattern are did you take liberty. BTW will be purchasing that pattern tomorrow...I look forward to seeing more...

    1. I used the waistband from the pattern BUT I cut enought to double my fabric and fold it over instead of facing it so it could have more structure. After I attached it, I added a dart at the center back to eliminate the gap. This dart was about an inch or so.

  5. Great tip putting in a dart (genius) I have problems with gapping at the back. Just to be clear you put a dart in the waistband. I would love to see a tutorial on that..
