An original variation to the typical harem pants: wrap harem pants. It has a very wide waist. You close the pants with a button on the left side, then wrapping the left side to the right and finally closing a button on the right side. Therefore, at the front you have three layers of fabric! This made it a bit difficult to work the buttonholes and attach the buttons. But I managed..
I decided to make it size 38 (I usually have 36), since I wanted the waistband to be a few centimeters below my waist. This appeared to be unnecessary, because now the trousers were too wide. That was easily solved by taking in the side seams.
I am really pleased with the end result! These pants are really comfortable. You can wear them in spring and summer, but they also look nice with a pair of boots in fall.
The material is a jersey blend (viscose, polyester), deep purple / aubergine colour
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
