Wow! I tried to find a pattern for wrap pants a while ago but failed miserably.

These are so cool. Any hints on where to look?

I'm not sure where to find a pattern but they're really easy to draft up yourself.



Start with a really basic pants pattern - without (or ignore) pockets, yokes, etc. Pyjamas or trackpants would work well (that's the yellow bit in the drawing). Start with the front panel. Trace around the crotch shaping, and then create straight legs. Then extend the side seam (The blue part). This should be a bit less than one-quarter of the waist measurement.

Do the same steps to the back panel - we do them separately because the crotch shaping will be a bit different.

Cut out all your bits, plus 4 long strips for the ties. Sew the front crotch seam. Sew the back crotch seam. Sew the front to the back along the inside leg seam. Hem everything, and attach the ties where I've marked the "x". Then put them on and flap about!

If you use a stretchy t-shirt material then they should be fine. If you use a woven fabric, then you might want to put in some little darts at the front and back, just to give it some shape around your hips.

Hope that helps!

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

This is a link to a pattern for Thai Fisherman pants. I think it'd similar to yours, not so sure about the top part though. It could probably be modified as well.

Can you show us a picture of the 'waistband; please? Smiley

I don't have a pic but its the same as the pants in your link there, just with another strip on the other side so you can tie it in the front and back, or on the sides Smiley

I like the way you tied them at the ankle. Some people say that the wrap pants "expose" them when the wind blows.  Seems as though this would solve that.

I've made a few pairs of these, and if you want them to be more like Pipes/really baggy pants, the only "pattern piece" you'll need is the crotch piece.

Theyre right, you dont really need a pattern for wrap pants  but I used one the first time I made some because my sister already had gotten the pattern.  Simplicity 5508  it was mid or late 90's. I found a pic of the pattern envalope.
