As soon as all trouser legs have been prepared with pockets, yokes, etc., all raw edges (see yellow line in the photo) can be trimmed. Make sure that the top steps of both front trousers are of different lengths.

Now the trouser legs can be sewn together before proceeding with the zipper processing. Take the front and back pant leg and lay them on top of each other, right sides together. Close the side seams of the front and back trousers with a 1.5 cm seam allowance. Work both legs and then press open the seam allowances.

The inner leg seams are sewn together with 1.5 cm . Don't be surprised if the distance between the buttocks and the knees is slightly shorter on the back pant than on the front pant. Stretch this line a bit so it fits. This cutting trick ensures a better fit of the pants. The trimmed seam allowances are ironed apart.

Have lots of fun with it
