Cut out the pattern pieces from your outer fabric and interlining. Lay the fabric right side up. The pattern pieces should all be face up. Always align the grain arrow on all pieces in the same direction and parallel to the selvedge of the fabric. Transfer all the notches from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, etc. Transfer these either with chalk or pins. It is best to first roughly cut all outer fabric parts that are completely covered with an interlining. After you have fixed the insert, cut it out exactly. There is also a video about gluing and fixing pattern pieces here.

To sew these pants you need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, alternatively you can use the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to finish the raw edges.
In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specially marked are 1 cm wide!
Start processing the front patch pocket. Iron the seam allowances 1cm around and double in and around the opening. Topstitch the engagement close to the edge.
Stitch the bag close to the edge and stitch foot wide on one of the upper front parts.
Lay the second upper front piece on the first, right sides together, and stitch through the sides and top.
Turn over the bib of the trousers and topstitch it narrowly at the edge and the width of your stitching foot.
Place the cut pocket pouches right sides together on the front pants and stitch through 1cm. Blend or clip the curve a bit.
