Description

I made these as a mock up for a pair I’m making for my husband. I wanted to test the waters first. I thought these were the perfect summer pants to lounge in. I used some navy/blue striped fabric from my stash that were unisex in pattern. I used the selvage edge as my tie, I liked the raw edge of it. I tried to match up the stripes, but it was really hard. I added a small pocket big enough to fit a cellphone or ipod. The top waist piece of fabric I did a felled seam in the back to make it more presentable. The funny thing is my husband wants his in pink linen/cotton striped. The pattern turned out perfect for him, he might want them a little shorter due to it’s really hot here.

Again I had to take the pics myself and my husband wouldn’t let me take pictures of him, yet.

I’m thinking about trying a pair in a dressy fabric and make a pair of evening cocktail hour Thai Fisherman pants…just thinking!

    I know this comment is 5 1/2 years “post project”, but I’m new to the site, having just signed up..Searching for “easy” patterns, I came across your work….And HAD TO comment…These pants are FANTASTIC!!I Great construction! I love your sense of humour: “Mock me up” is perfect for this fun, versatile garment! I can’t wait to make these! Already going through my fabric stash, because I want to make these pants NOW..:)…Did you use the Burda pattern? If so, other than adding a pocket, did you “customize” the pattern in any way? And you definitely should make a pair of "Thai Mock-tails ".:)…I think a high waist, wide, “palazzo” style pant is a timeless classic….I would love to pair raw silk pant legs with, a linen waist. It could turn out quite lovely: the soft flowing pant leg, and a structured, stiff waist…a nod to the corset, almost….Ah ! I’m obsessed with these pants already, lol…

    Wow, these are GREAT! I could really see them in a nice flowy silky material as an evening outfit! So, has your husband EVER worn them yet? I would like a pair for my DH too, but I think he would need a LOT of convincing, pity! lol
