If you want to try your hand at drafting, Shwin & Shwin provides an easy way to draft a pair of pants using an existing pair.


  • one pattern (self drafted or you can alter this basic pants pattern)
  • Fabric (for a size 5 I used 1 yard)
  • Lining fabric (1/8 yard)
  • Buttons or snaps (I used 6 in total)
  • Thread
  • Optional details, twill tape and embroidery floss
