I can’t remember what made me think of making these, but once it was in my head it had to be done! They looked so fun and flow-y, and the minute I saw the fabric I knew it was going to be perfect! Since I didn’t want to be drowning in fabric but I wanted the billowy effect, I made slits on each outer leg. I found the instructions somewhere online….google “how to make harem pants”. It was really easy! The waistband and ankle cuffs are elastic.
