I am so happy to show the updated track pants. I’ve been making this mod for my kids for awhile and finally got them published to include the cuffs and the changed pocket!!
The waistband is more simple than you would expect! It’s like any elastic casing just has 3 rows instead of one!
Here’s a brief look at the construction of the track pants. I’ve also got a video to help with the pockets 🙂
The first step will be the pockets which you can see here:
Then, moving on to the rest:
Finish the leg side seams and inseam
The waistband is folded down 2″ and 3 casings are sewn into the waistband 1/2″ apart.
There’s a gap in the seam at the back to thread the elastic through
The elastics and the drawstring are threaded through the waistband and the waistband is stitched closed at the gap in the back.
Now the track pants are done! And can be paired with almost anything for a super cool outfit 🙂
Find the pattern and after sewing it up go show it off!!
I’ll be back soon with a new sweatshirt I’m working on 😉
