As a general rule our pants blanks have machine stitching where hand work could be used if you desire. The machine stitching can be removed and replaced with hand top stitching if you wish to do so. If you order a pants blank and want to hand top stitch them please be sure to specify that you want to hand finish them and we will leave off the machine stitching.
The sizes given are the pattern size. The top of the pants at the waistband will actually be about an inch and a half larger than the pattern size. In order to get a good fit measure around the waist where will wear your pants and order accordingly. This measurement will be different from your blue jean size please do not rely on that measurement. Feel free to call or e-mail to make sure you are getting the correct size.
