Copying a pair of pants (4)

Here are pictures of the closing method for the pants. I made a zipper in the pocket.


This is the view when the zipper is closed.
Here you can see how it looks when I open the zipper. I laid a yellos paper behind the pocket to make the picture more clear.

I know the zipper is brown and my fabric grey. 
Others won't see the zipper at all , and the pants will be lined. I won't see much of the zipper when it's finished either.
The inside. The zipper is over the full length off the pocket. My hip and waist size have a difference of over 2 sizes. Therefor I need a  lot of opening space. I think you could make the opening shorter when the difference is not that big.


  1. Good progression here! Awaiting the final product :) .

  2. Excellent progress! Thanks for showing the inside and the outside of the zipper - so helpful!

  3. Ingenious solution! Can't wait to see the finished garment.

  4. Sigrid, I'm sure your pant's will look fantastic, can't wait to see them finished. Have a happy weekend:-)

  5. I have always skimmed over instructions on how to make a zipper opening in a pants pocket. Yours looks great. Can't wait to see the finished pants.
