I have always loved 90’s fashion! This sewing project gave me the perfect opportunity to make an amazing pair of vintage-style pants. I love everything about these pants from the silky fabric to the high-waist cut! Follow along as I sew these 90’s inspired pants!
To get started, you can either create your own pattern or use a pair of pants you already have as a template for tracing.
For this project, I chose a gorgeous, silky fabric.
I then went ahead and laid out a folded piece of fabric. I grabbed a ruler and chalk and started marking. To see my exact measurements go to 2:30 in the video. I then took scissors and cut.
I started the sewing process, by stitching a 4-inch pleat on the front of the pants.
Next, I sewed a 4 inch wide, 5-inch long dart on the back waistline of the pants.
I then moved onto the side pockets. To see exact measurements go to 3:28 in the video. I placed the unfolded pocket edge along the edge of the pants and stitched on the long side. I folded over the pocket fabric and stitched, leaving a gap for my hand to fit through.
It was time to attach the zipper, I zig-zag stitched the raw edges before stitching on the zipper.
Next, I went ahead and sewed the inner seams of the pants closed.
I also had to make a waistband for the pants. I cut a strip long enough to fit around my waist and about 2.5-3 inches long.
After sewing one long end, I pinned the waistband to the pants and stitched.
I made sure to hem the bottom of the pants to get a clean finish for my vintage-style pants.
I love the fact that these 90’s inspired pants are high waisted!
The pleats also add so much to these pants and give them the perfect fit and flow.
I love how easy it is to style these pants! They can easily transition from day to nightwear! How would you style these pants? Let me know in the comments below!
