This is a really simple way to make your own Swants (Sweater + pants).
You can find the original swants tutorial here .
I´m showing you a easy way to make your own low crotch swants.
It takes about 35 minutes to make them
and you only need to cut and sew.
Materials and tools:
- A sweater that fits you ( V neck if possible)
- A needle
- Waste yarn for seaming
Step 1: Shape and Size
This are the guidelines that you have to look in your sweater.
The importance of the " V "neck is because we will be using
it as an intern belt.
Step 2: Cut
Mark the sweater as shown and then cut the arms,
the back and the front.
Step 3: Sew
Now sew the front part of the arm with the front part of the sweater.
Make sure the shoulders are pointing to the middle of the sweater.
Do the same to the back.
There is going to be a space between both shoulders (red line).
Don't worry, that is supposed to happen.
Sew the front with the back to close that hole.
Step 4: Almost Done
At this point your swant should look like this and you can go and try it on.
You can leave your work done here, but as in my case, if you think your swant
is going to fall to your knees when you walk...
Then you should try the next step.
Step 5: From Neck to Belt
The importance of the "V" neck is only because of this step, because the V neck length is larger than the circular one, so you only have to cut it and attach it to the waist of your swant.
Sew as shown in the image (by the inside).
Then pass a lace or a ribbon trough the hole in the belt.
Step 6: You Are Done.
Wear them as you please, have a nice day
and sorry for the low quality images.
