These Here Harem Pants

Added Feb 1, 2011

Brooklyn, New Yo...






In an effort to make up my own mind about this polarizing fashion trend, I decided to give this pattern a try.
They came together quite easily, and they are very comfortable. The are fitted over the knee and the front and back yoke make it so there is not much pouf in front or back. I think they are not too terribly unflattering. I wore them to my knitting group on Sunday and I got a few thumbs up and few baffled looks.

What do you think?

    Harem pants were unflattering when MC Hammer wore and i think they still are unflattering no matter your body type. Sorry….

    But props to you for trying something new!

    I give you a thumbs up for jumping in and giving it a try! You are brave. I have been afraid to try the pattern. I like them when I see them in magazines. Just not sure how they would look on me. I think they work well with your gray shoes you have on. They help extend the leg line to make up for the lowered crotch of the pant. Pattern looks to fit you well. Nice Job.
