I see that there are not many topics about pants here, but I just love pants (the larger the better) and I have made this ones guessing the pattern from some old pants I like alot and I wear all summer. So now I have two of them  Grin






they didn't turn out just as I wanted them but they are ok. What do you think?

If you guys have any patterns or ideas for some baggy pants, or any kind of large, easy pants, please share.

Okay- to get the perfect baggy pants, for me anywho, I took an old pair of pants and laid them out like so: 


that is an old drawing I used lol didn't feel like redoing. anywho, make sure it is a pair that you like how the front and back sit and how the crotch fits. Trace out the top part adding a good 2 inches to the top for seams and turning in Grin now just make large rectangles (or triangles if you want a flared raver kinda look ) Grin Thats how I make me baggies Grin heheheheehe

BTW those pants are gorgeous! Cheesy I couldn't pull them off, but definitely pretty!

Is the material stretchy or did you just squeeze in?  I love how bright those pants are...but not bright in a tacky way.  Very cute!  I love them!

Thank you  all  Cheesy

Diannab thanks alot for explaining. I'll try that. The tricky part about the pants I wanted to copy is that they have the back side longer than the front side .. and that's why mine didn't came out so good, I just couldn't guess the exact shape. They have a straight cut on the right side (as in your drawing) but the left side, from my calculations is a litlle bent. At least at the back side it is for sure, because the leg has 29 cm at the bottom and 36 cm between the legs (excuse my expression  Grin). Maybe  you can post some pictures of your baggy's so I can see the shape.

asbigasitcango and rubyohsosoho the material is 100% cotton and the pants turned out smaller than I planed, I wanted them to be larger, but I was lucky that at least I can get inside  Grin

you have to make the back pieces bigger to accomodate your butt, otherwise the are too low in back creating the effect known as "builders bum" over here in the UK  Grin not that YOU have a big one...but I do, so I know this!
