Cut out your fabric 

First, assemble your pattern. Then use it as a guide and begin to cut out your fabric. You will be cutting out two leg pieces and one waistband.

Sew the side seams

Fold one leg in half - right sides together - lining up your side seams. Use a pin to secure the side seams and sew using a surge or a narrow zigzag stitch and a ballpoint needle. Repeat on the other side.

Attach the legs 

Bring your two leg pieces together by the center back (of the crotch). Match them and pin them into place. Next, work your way around the crotch of the pants until you come to the center front. Sew together along this curve.

Add in the waistband 

Take out your waistband pattern pieces and measure out your fabric. Cut according to the pattern. Next, fold your waistband in half so that the short ends meet together. Pin to secure and sew along the short edge.

Once your waistband resembles a short tube, fold in half again so the raw seams align. Place a pin along this stitch line to mark your center back. Then, gently stretch the waistband to find the exact opposite side and place a pin there to mark the center front. And finally, stretch the waistband one last time so that the two pins meet; the unpinned sides are now your side seams. Pint to mark.

Match the pinned seams with the seams on your pant legs and pin them into place. Once secure, stretch, and sew along the opening to bring the two pieces together.
