Description

I have always loved palazzo pants. The “main” fabric is synthetic, but looks like raw linen, without the bulk. The trim is raw linen, and was the reason for these pants. I fell in love with it when I saw it, but is was soooo expensive. So I only bought 0.5m and used it as trim.

I used the Burdastyle Ellen pants pattern, widened from about the mid-thigh (no need ot add bulk in the bum!), changed the waist to be elasticated and added pockets.

    How did you make the waistband elasticized? Did you widen the pattern from the top? I’d love to try this variation too! Thanks!

      All I did was skip making the darts and that gave me enough wiggle room. I also added 1 inch to the waist edge so I could simply fold the fabric over for the elastic band.

      This “cheat” won’t work if you are quite curvy – then you will probably need to widen the waist to fit over your hips. I don’t have big hips, so the little bit of extra width from not making the darts is enough for me.
