Sewn in first drop pants?
Got a pair of XL pants, and it's like wearing a sleepingbag on each leg.
Saw someone do it in a thread, but I can't find it anymore! Can I do this with a regular sewing machine ?
make bibs out of shoelaces and adjust them to the bagginess you want the pants to be.
loool you bought some fd expecting them to not be sleeping bag? haha

haha, yes. baggy, but kinda surprised that they were that big. :)
they come with bibs. you have fd in your name, how do you not know this.
Im looking for a kid who went to windells session 3 in collin collins group. SEND ME MY VIDEO!
1. That didn't answer his question, at all.
2. Even if it did, they have bibs, which have suspenders.
There are lots of videos online. Just flip them inside out and lay them down flat. Next, on the inseam ( the one that starts on your inside ankle and runs up to the crotch), draw a line with tailors chalk indicating how much material you want to remove, and pin along that line. Flip them right side out again and try them on; adjust the pins for the desired fit. Once you've got that dialed, when they're inside out, sew along the line of pins that you ended up with. Then, remove the excess material.
i hope that made sense.
There are three shitty things about sewing in pants though. It compromises the waterproofing along that seam, it compromises durability along that seam, and it removes the leg vents (unless you're really crafty).
You may want to consider just selling them on here, and spring for a different pair. If not though, do some research, good luck, and post the results!
Ps, you're friendly neighborhood tailor/seamstress could probably do it a little better than you, thats another option.
Not sure of your height and weight, but have you considered exchanging them for a large?
Thanks! actually tried this, but the pant was to thick for the sewing machine.
He's from Norway, so maybe he don't want to pay the fee's and the shipping. On a side note, your pants are really huge.

they all look like sleeping bags. start making your pants baggy based on length and scrunch up rather than wide parachute mc hammer pants.

They are warm like a sleeping bag and probably one of the comfiest feeling pant's. I was kinda put off by it at first but now I've come to love my poofy pants.
