* Purple/green plaid = 3 yards of 60” fabric or 4 yards of 44” fabric
Unable to find an ideal wool plaid fabric, I designed a Spoonflower print specifically for these trousers.
I’ve made the design public and you’re welcome to use it for your Joker trousers.
I specifically calibrated the colors for their “lightweight cotton will” since I found it to be the best overall option from their available fabrics.
* Lightweight contrast fabric = 1 yard
This is for the fly and internal waistband facings. I used a purple lightweight cotton fabric.
* Fusible interfacing = 1 yard
* 1 yard of pocketing
Either of the options below should work well:
Alternatively, a lightweight cotton fabric such as muslin or quilting cotton will work fine.
NOTIONS, SUPPLIES, etc.
* 1 spool of black thread
* 1 spools of dark purple thread (optional)
* ½” nylon stay tape
* Six ¾” buttons
* Six suspender buttons
* Two trousers-style hook-and-eye closures
You can use the standard retail trousers-style hook-and-eye closures, which are hand-sewn to the garment.
However, for sturdier closures and nicer-looking waistband, use the more professional, prong-type closures!
* 2 yards of 1 ½” Ban Roll
* ¼” double-fold bias binding (optional)
You can simply serge the edges of your trousers, including the button fly assemblies.
However, I chose to bind these edges with purple bias tape, to give the trousers a little more pizazz.
