Hello everyone. I'm on Mid-Winter break and I want to use it to do a few sewing projects. I've searched HIGH and LOW for a tutorial or free pattern (no money Cry) for draped pants like this:
. All I've gotten is tutorials for the same kind of harem pant. So, I came here knowing that you all are really creative and knowledgable with these things. I really love the drapery on the sides of these. I know I have to use a flowy fabric to even make the pants look right, but what shape do I cut to create this effect? Huh Huh Huh

Please I am so lost. Also, would I do the same to make pants like these?

How would I create the pleats? Thanks sooooo much in advance! Smiley

okay so i made you this really bad paint tutorial to kind of help you get on your way.  i've made very similar pants and was frustrated not being able to find a harem pant pattern i wanted so i made my own.  hopefully you are pretty familiar with sewing and can figure this out (but feel free to ask questions and hopefully i can answer them) because this is really basic. the colors came out horribly, but there should be red lines where there are short vertical lines in a row (on the waists).



these are the pants i made. the fit wasn't quite right so we rolled the legs up to the knee. (this is not me, it was one of my models/friends).

I'm by no means an expert, so take the following advice with a grain of salt and, as you should always do, make a muslin before you cut into your good/expensive fabrics.

I think the picture is of "cowl pants", and here's what I would do:

1) Take a pattern for trousers that fit you. (Front side on the left, back side on the right).

2) Choose how low you want the "draping to be", make horizontal lines at the desired depth, and make curved lines from the waistline, to the side, as shown.

3) Cut up your pattern through those lines.

4) Arrange them so that the top parts form sort of a horizontal line, with some distance between them (The distance being two times the depth of the "draping", the more distance, the fuller the pants will be). Arrange the rest of the pieces so that the waistlines become curves, and the bottom corners are touching. Turn the hem lines into a curve. (Explaining this with words is hard, just look at the image Smiley)


Now, I'm not exactly sure whether you should cut this cross-grain, or with the grain running vertically, maybe someone with more experience can help, or just make a couple of muslins and see which one hangs best.

To sew them up, just fold it down the middle, and sew the top (going from the waistline down to the middle point), which means you'll have a seam running down the side halfway down the leg, not all the way to the hem, and then sew the rest like you would any other pair of trousers.

Hope this helps! Best of luck, and do post the results if you make them Wink

If you want a pattern, Vogue Patterns has (or had) something like that last year.  I think it was in their sportswear collection.  If I get some time, I'll have a look for it...

What dbh2ppa said. It's a "hip cowl," and I've seen it on pants, skirts and dresses.

BTW, cowl sleeves are dang cool. Must draft that up some time...
