Fashion likes to change its silhouettes and proportions, which is why pants sit more at the waist and have a wider leg. The pattern of the Nuru trousers is very trendy, the flared hem is somewhat reminiscent of the flared trousers of the 70s. What's special about Nuru are the dividing seams that run from the back yoke over the side seam into the hem of the front leg. The trousers are nice and narrow up to the hips and then widen towards the hem. The slanted pockets and the double stitching on the seams make it look very sporty.
Hem width = 54 – 62 cm
Side length without waistband = 105 cm
In these instructions, Nuru was sewn from a trouser fabric with 3% elastane.
We recommend a fabric made of fine corduroy, jeans or a wool fabric.
Cut the pattern pieces from your outer fabric, lining fabric and interlining. Lay the fabric right side up. Place the selvages parallel to the center so that you can place the waistband at the back of the fold. The pattern pieces should all lie face up. Always align the thread arrow in the same direction on all pieces and parallel to the selvedge of the fabric. Transfer all the clippings from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk. Clip the seam allowance in the fabric fold because this is always a center. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, and much more. Transfer these either with chalk or pins. It is best to roughly cut all outer fabric parts that will be completely covered with inserts first. After you have fixed the insert, cut it out exactly. There is also a video about gluing and fixing cut parts here.
What you need from fabric:
- 2x rear pants opposite
- 2x front trousers opposite
- 2x saddles in opposite directions
- 2x pocket bags-1 opposite
- 1x underpass
- 1x belt loops
also with insert:
- 2x waistband at the back in the break
- 2x federal top step opposite
- 2x federal undercut opposite
- 1x front trousers on the top of the right side of the body
You need from food:
- 2x pocket bags-2 opposite
To sew these trousers you will need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, or alternatively the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to neaten the cut edges.
If you are sewing in a zipper, you will also need the right sewing foot for your sewing machine. In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something needs to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specifically marked are 1cm wide!
Have fun sewing!
There is also a video about the pocket processing of the Nuru pants here.
(Note: the photo is of the Benedikte jeans!)
We continue with the pockets. To do this
The pocket bag-2 made of lining is placed on the saddle, right sides together, stitched with 1cm and the seam allowances are neatened together. The seam allowance is ironed towards the center back.
Now take the pocket bag-2 and place it right sides together on the previously collapsed pocket bag-1. Sew the bags together along the curve and finish the seam allowances together. Close the seam only up to the mark in the pattern (see yellow line).
Place an auxiliary seam of 0.5cm so that the pocket is held correctly and can be included later when processing the waistband.
Now the back and front pants can be sewn together. To do this, place the cut back pants and the prepared front pants with saddle together, right sides together, and stitch everything through with 1cm. The seam allowances are then neatened together and ironed to the back. Pay attention to the clips marked in the cut.
The seam allowance is stitched twice onto the back of the trousers, once with a 0.2cm narrow edge and 0.7cm quilting foot wide.
Now the right leg is prepared so that it can be finished all around in one go . The hem is ironed at the clips when open. This is easier for later processing.
The hem is folded over at the previously ironed edge and stitched through.
The tape is from Vlieseline
Neaten the bottom edge of the inner waistband.
This means you can attach the finished waistband to the trousers, right sides together. The seam allowance is then ironed into the waistband.
Turn the waistband right side out and iron it flat again if necessary. Then stitch the edge through the waistband all around. Fold in the belt loops 1cm along the top edge and at the same time secure them to the top edge of the waistband through the stitching seam.
Then lay the belt loops straight and secure them at the bottom edge (under the waistband).
Finished stitched waistband.
Finally, the buttonhole is made on the right side of the body and the matching button is sewn on.
