New York, United...
I made these pants, which are made of cotton velvet, using Kwik sew 2123, an out-of-print mens jeans pattern from the early Nineties. I was inspired by a photo in W magazine I saw of actor Garrett Hedlund, wearing leopard pants from the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011 collection. I was like, I want those! Now I only need some place fabulous to wear them. (I welcome all invitations.)
More about these pants on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness. Happy Holidays to all!
I used a leopard print cotton velvet I found in the Garment District in NYC for $7/yd. It only took about 2 yards to make the pants. Rather than a jean button I put in a hook and eye as a closure. I also used commercial waistband interfacing for a more sturdy waistband.
