The Perfect Pair of Wide Leg Pants

Added Sep 19, 2010

Hickory, North C...






I have an all-consuming love for 1970s fashion, so wide leg pants are an absolute must for my wardrobe. I’ve been searching for the perfect wide leg pants pattern for a very long time, and I knew that I’d finally found it when I saw BurdaStyle member Reneebies version of the high waist pants from Vogue 8604. I have used 1970s patterns to make pants before, but I fell in love with the built-in extremely high waist design of this Vogue pattern, plus the legs are super-duper-mega wide!

I anxiously grabbed the pattern during a sale at my local Hancock Fabrics and I already had some trouser-weight denim on hand that needed destashing. Add the zipper and 1/2 yard of lining fabric for the pockets and the resulting pants only cost me $20.00 and a few well-spent hours of my time!

Also blogged here.

    I already found it on the web but for me to buy it, I mean, when the postal fee is twice the price, I really had to think over. :(

    They are so nice! They look very comfy too! But mostly, I love the pleats on the front!
