I'm a big fan of skin-tight leggings, but sometimes you just don't feel like showing it off that much. With that in mind, I made some lounge pants that are still sexy and very sensual. Maybe you call them harem pants, but they could also be worn by a genie or a very fabulous pirate.

 They are loose and breezy, so perfect for hot afternoons by the pool or swashbuckling at Burning Man. The thin elastic keeps the pants up without digging into soft bellies, and the wide waistband prevents any muffin top action from happening.  Because there is so much stretch in the fabric and construction, they will fit just about any body (even one that's had too much to drink) and still be incredibly comfortable!

They're made out of this fantastic pearly metallic lycra and I used fold-over elastic for the waist and leg bands.

Any one else gearing up for Burning Man?

Those look so comfy! I'm jealous you're going to burning man! It's high up on my bucket list!

I didn't know what burning man was until I read your other post with the leggings. It sounds like it's a lot of fun, and I hope you have fun there!!

These pants are awesome. I have a pair exactly like them, which my friend got in Paris and then gave to me. They are amazingly comfy. I should follow suit and make a pair so that I can have more comfy pants.
