Our Thai Fisherman Pants every summer since they debuted in 2009 have been on our top selling pattern list. They come in one size, are easy to sew, and versatile to wear. I personally have not made them yet, but every year I get more temped to by all our member’s variations of this pattern, and they look so comfortable to wear.
Above are some of my favorite member projects of these thai pants. I absolutely love pixelink’s thai fisherman shorts variation, what a great idea to shorten the hem length. They look super cute in check fabric too like nimblefingers’s buffalo check thai fisherman pants, and I also like the two-toned striped pants made by sierrab6. Then we have loyl8’s loungy thai pants that she makes look so good.
The thai pants are suitable in a wide range of fabrics for multiple end uses. I personally like the idea of spicing up the pants and making them elegant by sewing them in a metallic like this cadet blue fabric. imagine wearing with a pair of heels and a tight bustier top. To make these pants more loungewear-like try stitching up in a comfy fabric like this cream seersucker. Ultimately I really want to sew these pants in a sheer printed fabric! They would look so elegant to a pool party or the beach sewn in a lightweight sheer like this Oscar de la Renta georgette.
The great thing about these pants as well, is that they are an easy to sew project and the sewing instructions includes images of all the steps!
