Wide-legged trousers

I drafted the pattern from my favourite pair of trousers, even though I’m short, I love them! I made them for entertaining on a hot summers evening, so even though they are casual, they can also be dressed-up. I added a sewn pleat to make them look a little more formal, as the fabric is very crushable. The waistband is a drawstring, as I prefer that to elastic.

Material Notes

100% cotton, bias binding tape, cotton thread, cotton tape for drawstring.

    Love these pants! Looks very fresh, may have to make some of these come spring. Thanks for showing that vertically challanged individuals can wear wide legs…lol.(I am 5’2" and can never find the right length of pants). Happy Sewing!

    Great pants, and they suit you so well! And I agree with schnui, you should make more of them, perhaps in different colours?

      Thanks, I was really pleased with the rear view, I don’t have a big bottom, but trousers can be a bit of a trial!

    These are really nice pants Jenny and a perfect fit for you. You can’t go wrong with a lovely pair of white pants in an Aussie summer. You had better make another pair as you will want to wear them all the time!!
