I was cleaning out my bookmark folder and came across an old tutorial for Thai Fisherwoman pants. After browsing several more tutorials I sketched out a quick pattern and got to work. Oh, and by the way, you guys weren't kidding when you said these were the most comfortable pants EVER.

I had a very limited amount of fabric and ended up reversing the grain in order to extend the length of the pants 10" (I'm a tall girl). Still didn't get them as long as I wanted, but you do what you can with the fabric you have, eh?

Of course, my favorite part is the part that nobody sees. I love the way the pattern overlaps on the waistband.
This is also a pretty good shot of the color.

After taking the first batch of photos I realized that my hair is out of control (damn Florida humidity). So I made a headband from the scraps.

Much better.

Great pants! I love the fabric. I understand what you mean about Florida humidity. I am from Los Angeles and now living in St Augustine.... since I have been here I found out I actually have curly hair! EEEK humidity!  Cheesy

Nice work on the pants!

Love these! Your fabric is wonderful! I especially like the reversed grain parts at the bottom - even if it was just to lengthen them (and not an intentional design detail), I think it adds a little something that really "makes" the pants.

I just made a pair myself, and they are indeed incredibly comfortable.

These are great!   I love the way you reversed the pattern at the bottom.  I'd love to know the original post you saw.  These may be my next project .... I need a serious break from skirts and dresses.

Are the links to the four or so tutorials that I used to figure out how to make these. I'd suggest making the panel that wraps to the back a little wider so that you don't have to deal with exposing yourself quite as much.

Next time I get some money I want to buy a contrasting fabric so that I can line these babies. That way my seams don't show when they flap open and it has the added bonus of making them reversible.
