Pants Project

An exploration of the folds and layers a person has and how you can dig deeper into the conventional contents of a person’s life through pockets.

A conceptual illustration was drawn before creating a pant sloper and muslin was made based off measurements and then was manipulated to create the wrap pant pattern. A muslin was then sewn and adjusted for the final pattern. The pocket was drafted and made in muslin as well to figure out finishing and production before the final garment was made.

The wrap pants were constructed using a luxurious taupe fashion fabric to give a drapey and soft appearance. Not only is the pant fastened with the wrap tie portion, but underneath it in the center is a zipper for added stability. The wrap front portion is designed with a grommet that is covered in a creamy waffle knit fabric and links it to the exposed pocket and allows the wearer to adjust the size of the waist. The pouch detail consists of three layers, the first being a backing in the fashion fabric to stabilize and make for a seamless transition when walking. The second fabric is the waffle knit that concocts an interesting dynamic with the clear vinyl on top.The entire pouch is finished with bias tape made from the waffle knit fabric. The garment also has an added side seam pocket on the right side. The garments seams were serged and hems finished for a clean sleek look with no raw edges.
