Thai Fisherman’s Pants

On our first visit to Thailand I bought rather a lot of fabric.  One of the lengths that I bought was specifically woven for Thai Fisherman’s pants.  My husband quite likes wearing loose trousers – he’s one of those bearded guys you see on holidays in hippy clothes ? – so this fabric purchase was especially for him.

I used Burda Style’s pattern for Thai Fisherman’s Pants. There are plenty of tutorials around for sewing this style, but I always prefer to use a pattern. I’m just not freestyle by nature!  They describe this pattern as follows: These easy and comfortable lounge pants are incredibly versatile and the perfect beginner project. It only consists of a few pattern pieces and is quickly sewn together. Makes great sleeping pants as well! Download the pattern and follow the instructions to make the fishermen’s pants and you will be good to go in a couple of hours.

I’m not really a massive fan of Burda’s pdf patterns, but they are well priced. This was very easy to sew, and I did all the construction on the overlocker. The fabric is a fairly open weave and frayed very quickly. It needed that overlocking!

That back view above really shows how crookedly my husband stands! As you probably know, the great thing about this style of pants is the size adjustability. The front is folded over then tied to secure, with the rest of the waistband then folding over the ties.

This was almost a zero-waste pattern – there were only tiny scraps of fabric left over after cutting out, so the pre-cut length of fabric was spot on!  If you like relaxed, loose and adjustable clothing, it’s worth giving the Thai Fisherman’s Pants style a try.

I am super excited to get started today on actually sewing up our Lander Pants and Shorts. If you havn’t done so already, go ahead and cut out all of your pattern pieces from your fabric. Make sure that you also transfer all marking from your pattern pieces to your fabric. There are quite a few ways to do this. Generally I just make a small snip for all notches and use my Chalk pen for everything else. It keeps it simple. The darts should be marked on the wrong side our your fabric, and the back pocket markings should be marked on the right side of your fabric. OK, let’s get going. Step 1 – Fuse your interfacing to the wrong side of the curved edge of the front pocket pieces, the waistband, and the left fly. Make sure that your fly looks like the diagram in your instructions with the interfacing facing up. Otherwise you might fuse it to the wrong side of the fly and then the left fly will be backwards.   Step 2 – Before sewing, make sure that you have the correct needle in your sewing machine. Especially if your fabric is on the […]
