New York, United...
I’ve been wanting to make myself a pair of harem pants, a la Hedi Slimane’s Dior mens collection from a few years back. I chose Simplicity 4788, a sort of mens “Arabian Nights” costume pattern. I took about 5 inches off the rise, 4 off the middle, and shortened them to mid-calf.
A lot more on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness. (www.malepatternboldness.blogspot.com)
I made a muslin out of an old cotton poly sheet, which you can also see below. Much baggier.
I used a soft, drapey, very lightweight cotton print I found in the Garment District. The contrasting waistband is in a cotton stripe.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
