A CHILD'S LARGER TROWSERS. PLATE 7. FIG. 3, 4. This resembles Fig. 1 and 2 in every respect, excepting that the top is sloped or hollowed at the
Slope from G to E, and again from E to C, through A; after which, cut at the top of one fold from A to B, and of the other from B to C. Take care to cut the pair to match, so that the outer, or hollowed parts of the legs should rise, the one towards the right, and the other towards the left side.
These are made up in a similar manner to Fig. 1.
Each leg of these trowsers is also made in the entire breadth.
2 nails more. Supposing it but 8 nails long, cut as follows, after folding the breadth in half its width.
Slope from E to G. Cut in a straight line from G, past C, to H. Cut one fold from C to B, and the other from H to B.
If the tucks require 2 nails length in addition to the above size, continue the width of the legs, the same as from C to E (3 nails), to the end. -
In making up, sew the trowsers up before and behind, and cut two slits, one on each side, to the depth of 3 nails. These slits have broad hems laid on all round them; to form which, cut two strips of 4} nails long, and 2 nails broad; split each length down the middle, to within 13 nail from the end (see Fig.2). This strap is laid close to the edge and run all round the two sides of the slit, turned over, and hemmed down. This false hem greatly strengthens these slits.
The whole is then set into two bands, one for the front, and the other for the back of the trowsers. These bands are 5} nails long, and # of a nail wide, when doubled. A button-hole is strongly worked, in a slanting direction, at each corner of the bands, by which they are fastened to two buttons sewed upon the stays.
TROWSERS FOR A BOY OR GIRL.
This is a pretty body and trowsers, and is very suitable to little boys, especially if they are at all delicate, being particularly warm. The body is composed of one middle piece, 6 nails long, and two side pieces, 3} nails long each. They are 24 nails deep, and, when sewed together, the middle is hollowed so as to make it only 2} nails. The trowsers are made as follows:– Width of material, 12 nails. Length of each breadth, 11% nails. Fold each breadth in two (see Fig. 8).
Slope from H to B; also from H, past F, to G, at the top of the breadth, whence it is cut to E, for the hollowed fold, while the under one is cut straight from E to F.
This trowser opens at the side; there is also a small opening in front (see K, Fig. 7). The body is hemmed all round, and sewed on plainly to the front band of the trowser, but it is left loose, as in Fig. 7, beyond the arm-holes on each side. The two bands button to each other at the sides, the body ties behind, and may, or may not be fastened also to the band of the trowsers at each side, having button-holes to correspond with the buttons. A little pocket should be sewed inside the slit down the sides, as in Fig. 9, where it is represented as if drawn out, or turned inside out.
These are useful to put over the legs of children's trowsers, when they are soiled or tumbled, before it is necessary to put on an entirely clean pair. They are usually made of some finer material than the the trowser itself, and look well for an evening, when they are of fine cambric muslin, with open-work, or small tucks. They are fastened by three or four buttons and button-holes or loops, the buttons being sewed to the trowsers. Sometimes the trowser itself only reaches to the knee, and leglets are always attached to it, by means of small buttons; they should be put on pretty closely, to make the leglets fit well, say six or eight on each leg; button-holes are made to correspond in the leglets. They
are especially advantageous for children who play a great deal out of doors, or who live in a town, they will sometimes soil one or two pair in a day.
PLATE 7. FIG. 11, 12.
These are formed of two separate legs sewed into a band, which is made to button before or behind, at pleasure. For a moderate size, Fig. 12 will be a good guide.
Width of material, 14 nails.
Length of each breadth, 15 nails.
Fold each breadth in half its width, letting D be the doubled part, and measure as follows:–
Cut in a straight line from S to G ; cut also from E to Z, the point Z being within ; a nail from the side. Hem the bottoms of the legs, after sewing up the seams, and hem round the slits, or open part; set them into the band, making them over-lap each other (see Fig. 11). The band is 11 nails long,
and 3 nails wide. ANOTHER SHAPE.
PLATE 7. FIG. 13, 14.
Some persons, both ladies and children, wear bodies attached to their drawers, as in the figure, which represents a child's size.
Procure your material 10} nails wide.
Cut each breadth 9 nails long.
Let D be the doubled part, and mark as follows:–(Fig. 14.)
Cut from G to H, H being 4} nails from the doubled side.
Let the body be 2% nails deep, and 10 nails long, fold it in four, cut out the arm-holes, and sew on the shoulder-straps.
In making up the trowsers, sew the legs together in front, after they have been run up, leaving them open behind, and laying on a broad tape (see T T, Fig. 13), sew on the body, and it is completed.
TUREI ISH TROWSERS.
PLATE 7. FIG. 15, 16.
These Turkish or full trowsers are often worn by little girls.
Cut one fold from E to F, and the other from E to G. Cut from G to C in a straight line.
In making, sew up from B to C, and either gather the bottom, A B, into a band, to which a frill is set on, or else make a deep hem to admit of a ribbon, which draws it up to the proper size, and ties in a bow. To this hem is sewed a broad frill or handsome piece of work. The latter is the most convenient plan of the two for the washer-woman, as the leg will lie quite flatly to be ironed.
TROWSERS FOR A LITTLE BOY.
PLATE 7. FIG. 17, 18, 19.
This is a particularly good pattern, and very suitable for a boy. Procure your material 10 nails wide, to admit of one leg in the breadth. Cut each breadth 74 nails long. Double the leg so as to leave 2 nails unfolded, or rather, fold it to within two nails of the selvage. Let D, Fig. 19, be the doubled part. From A to B is 2 nails, and is not double. From B to C is 4 nails, the one fold being cut in a slight curve from B to C, and in a sweep from A to C. The bottom of the leg is 3 nails wide. Slope from G to C, G being nearly 2 nails from the bottom. The body is 10 nails long, and 24 nails deep ; fold it in four, and cut out the arm-holes (see Fig. 18). In making, sew up each leg from K to G, and hem round every other part; next, make the body, hemming it all round, after which, sew the legs firmly to the body, making the flap, A LC, of one leg, over-lap or lie across the flap of the other leg. These two flaps, after being firmly set into the band, are farther secured by back-stitching them together along the dotted line. Fig. 17.
PLATE 7. FIG. 20, 21, 22.
These are men's strong drawers, made of coarse twill or calico.
Procure your material 14 nails wide.
Cut each breadth 13 nails long.
Fold the breadths in half, letting D, Fig. 20, be the doubled part. The drawers are quite straight at the top, the piece, C H F, being an extra bit put in (see Fig. 20).
