Traditional Chinese Pants!

Can you believe that this pattern only consists of two rectangles? It’s really true. All you add is an elastic waistband…
The final pant shape is similar to harem pants. I actually haven’t made up my mind about harem pants yet, and I haven’t even made up my mind about these Chinese pants either. I consider tthis version here a muslin… wearable maybe, as yoga pants for example, but I am curious whether I could turn this into elegant street pants… What do you think? Do they have potential? I’d love to hear your input!
I have a full pattern/instructions/tutorial of this over on my blog: Of Dreams and Seams I appreciate any input highly!

    I really like this! I like how it looks on you. This tone of blue is amazing. I am so interested in making one. I had one in black from when I used to practice Tai Chi Chuan. I would be so happy if you tell me what fabric did you use for this pants?

    You are awesome for posting these pictures! I think they work great as yoga pants, but I am not sure how they would work as elegant street pants. Others seem to think they have potential – I tend to be more safe. Definitely interested in what you make next though!

      Oooh, thank you so much for that lovely comment – and for being honest about it… I STILL don’t know what to think of it myself. I guess I would have to try it…

      Thank you (+blush!). It’s a great compliment coming from you! I know how it is with the list… these were on my list forever before actually trying it.

    these definitely have potential! with a different fabric they would be almost like a palazzo pant—with a cute strapless top and some chunky jewelry—viola!

    These look great on you! I love my harem pants, but like you did here I always wear them with a tight top otherwise I just look swamped in fabric :-)
