I always have vintage fabric in my stash and because most of it is very bold, sometimes it's hard to know what to make. But I found this really fun pattern that had the wrap pants, a hat, flip flops, a tote bag and two top variations at the thrift store! These are the pants. (Someone else on this forum made some just like them in a solid fabric,,) What do you think??

Ha!  I've been seeing so many of these lately!  I just made some a couple weeks ago in gauze that I never even posted here.  Add another person who made those pants to the list.  Maybe because it is summer?  They are so ridiculously comfortable.  I'm always afraid I'm going to flash someone if the wind picks up though...

I LOVE that fabric that you used!  It fits the pants perfectly Smiley

I've got a pattern for wrap pants also.  Haven't made any yet, but you've just reminded me all about it.  Oh, and those are cute too.  Look like perfect cruise wear.

Thanks folks, I actually wore them this afternoon cuz it was hot as Hades outside and the neat thing about them is that they catch the breeze! The scary thing about them is they show a little leg, not really much though. Couldn't be worse than those gals in the really, really short, shorts! LOL  The other poster gave a neat tutorial on her page that doesn't require a pattern.  Hers have a lower waist than mine so I'm going to borrow that idea cuz mine are sort of Irkle-fied on my 5'3 frame!

I DD friend has a pair of these.  I tried to make a pair out of a lounging pant pattern.  They did not turn out right.  I sewed 5/8" seams and when I added the ties I did not get enough coverage.

Where did you find a pattern for them?  Please tell me it's available.


tickleagangster- I love the material.

I would make each leg out of the width of the fabric.  Short tut: Just cut to rectangles the length you want the pants to be, layer them on top of each other (right sides in), then cut a U shape for the crotch (fairly deep) and sew the U shape together.  Cut out two strips of fabric about 2-3x the width of the fabric for the waistband/tie.

I'm fairly certain Simplicity or one of those companies has a pattern for them if you want that.
