A yoke can be made for trousers through dart manipulation and this technical file demonstrates the process to follow for this useful technique and new construction. A yoke for trousers is most often placed at the back, below the waistband, and can be found on many casual trouser styles. It is constructed using the back of a trouser base whose darts are suppressed for conversion into a yoke. The classical trouser base pattern can be used as your starting point if you do not have the right base for this construction. The dp studio file’s explicit instructions and sketches will bring you a full understanding of this particular working process for a top-of-the-range result.
