My super wide summer pants! 06/2015 111 C

Orinda, Californ...






Wide leg, loose paper bag waist pants with pockets. I saw these pants in the June 2015 issue and knew I had to have them! I made a fit muslin and didn’t make any changes to the pattern. I usually make size 38 and have to shorten the crotch a bit but as these are meant to be loose and high waisted I didn’t make any changes. They are so comfortable and I love them. I have gotten several compliments on them too! I plan on making them again in a dressier fabric for evening. They call for a fly front zipper which I did, but they are so loose you could eliminate the zipper and just sew up the center front as there is plenty of room to get in and out of them! For non sewing related general fun, please visit my blog at: www.aslongasicanstillbuyshoes.blogspot.com. Thanks!!!

Material Notes

I made them out of a cotton sateen with stretch though stretch isn’t needed

    These would go with the vortex top perfectly!! And I have a pair of black wide leg pants almost identical to these but out of a wool mix (bought not made by me!).

      Thank you! They were fun to make and I just saw a pic of a Stella McCartney pant similar to these in tweed so I think I need to make them again for fall!

    These are fabulous on you. I wondered how these would look and they look great. I love them but slimmer fitting suits me. Love how you styled them as well x

    Great pants! I hoped that somebody would upload such a project to see how they look like on a natural woman (not a model…). Thanks for sharing, I’ll definetely try them!
