Biker pants have been popular for quite some time now and I love this look on my boy! Although we don't have an official "biker pant" in the Misusu pattern catalogue, adding the typical biker details to any pants will totally get you there. And that's exactly what Erica did with our Alex pants - simple hack with maximum results! In this blogpost, Erica shows us just how to achieve this super cool look, read along!

Hi there!

I‘m Erica, happily living in the Netherlands and proud mom of three kids. Besides family, I’m working as a psychologist three days a week.


My sewing life started about four years ago when my youngest son was born. I was fully dedicated to nurturing him, but also needed quality time for myself. So why not try and combine these two? That’s when and why I started sewing. And I never stopped. A new addiction was born!

All the lovely people I’m following at the divers social media platforms did not only teach me how to sew, but are also giving me a daily boost of inspiration. The use of fabrics, techniques and hacks of frequently used patterns. Fantastic!
So by joining the Misusu Hacker Team, I hope to inspire others with my hack of the lovely Alex Pants pattern.

 

Let’s sew the Alex Biker Pants!

Step 1 - Divide the front leg pattern piece in 4 parts like I did in the picture.
Make 4 new pattern pieces by adding 1 cm seam allowance at the cutting lines. 

 


Step 2 - Cut pattern piece C twice for both legs (4 times in total). Collect the 2 pieces for both legs and fasten them at the top and bottom with a long stitch.

 

Step 3 - Topstitching - Sew a first row close to the edge, using a knit stitch. Place your presser foot in line with the first row and sew the second one. Repeat this until you reach the bottom of the pattern piece.

 


Step 4 - Collect pattern piece B and C. With the right sides together pin the two pieces together. Sew the seam (1 cm- 3/8”), using a knit stitch or use a serger.

 


Step 5 - Press the seam up towards pattern piece B and topstitch close to the seam edge. 

 


Step 6 - Collect pattern piece B/C and A. Pin the two pieces with the right sides together and sew the seam. Press the seam towards pattern piece A and topstitch close to the seam edge.

Step 7 - Finishing the leg. With the right sides together, pin piece D at the bottom of your assembled leg and sew the seam. Press the seam down towards pattern piece D and topstitch close to the edge. 

Step 8 - Repeat these steps for the other front leg. After this you can continue to sew the pants by following the instructions from the original Alex Pants tutorial.

Finished!
Your Alex biker pants is ready!


I'm looking forward to seeing your creations! Use #alexbikerhack #misusuhack #misusupatterns and tag me @cado.ca when you made this hack. Good luck and enjoy!

Kinds regards,
Erica
