but I have no idea how to sew them.


 I got one pair on ebay but think I should be able to sew a pair for less than the $30 they are charging.

Do you think it would be too hard to copy the pattern from the pants?

NO these wouldn't be hard. I am a super novice sewer, but this is a simple design, and VERY flexible! Like a wrap skirt, the sizing is very forgiving! IF you already have a pair, just take a look at them insideout and you can see how the 'puzzle' works! I had a pair of these style pants and loved them! That was a number of years ago, sure wish I still had them! I think the only draw back would be that they take up a lot of fabric...
Go for it! Good luck!

This page has good instructions for sewing your basic belly dance costume harem pants...I've made em with non-elastic legs as sort of Palazzo pants.  They are super comfy and pretty to wear with a more fitted top.  I think you'll definitely be able to use the pair you bought as a pattern, but this page might help if not Smiley

I was going to say that they are very similar to the tai fishermans pants that some have posted here.  But someone beat me to it.  I have added that store to my favorite sellers, it is not often you see unusual and interesting clothing like that in plus sizes.

I'd recommend the clothes.  They do bleed so wash them seperate the first time.  And they need to be washed on a gentle setting.  I ruined one top by washing on a regular setting Sad

Yea they look great, but I am kind of like you, I don't know that I have EVER spent $30 on a top.  Or a dress.  Huh  But you never know I might slurge one of these days.

i bought this pattern. it takes a little bit to make because of all the hemming. but i agree, very flattering, comfortable, and down right sexy.

ive made about 4 pairs.

Is this style of pant actually flattering? I always avoid things that have too much fabric going on - particularly in the bottom portion. I got enough going on there with what nature has dealt me. I looked at the picture and the model is not very large. Has anyone here tried them?
