    Holy granoly, how fabulous these pants are?! Your version look SO good that it makes me want to try them, although it’s SO not my style! I’m going on an excavation in a two weeks,so if nothing else I’m gonna make them so that I have something comfy to wear while I work!

      he he I love them love them too. 2.5m for the pants for hips up to 36 inches. For more than 36 inches buy 3 meters – 44 inches wide fabric that has a nice drape, I used crepe.

    Yay! Magda! When i made these Cowl Pants first using batik printed cotton fabric, i realized the drape would be good on Crepe and when i made the tutorial, decided to make it using crepe material, mine was plain crepe, the choice of Pasiley motifs on crepe was surely a masterstroke on your part. my Dhoti pant tutorial is now getting more attention than when i had posted it initially! Thanks to you!
