There is a pattern out there, and I have used it to great success. The only thing problem area is that there is no waistband.

Even though a lot of people are saying that turning a skirt into pants won't work right, I still think someone should give it a try. I mean, it might not turn out EXACTLY like gaucho pants, but it still might look pretty cool.

I have an old skirt made in the fabric that I've seen a lot of gaucho pants made from and I'm gonna give it a try. Anyone else up to the challenge? After I do it I'll try to post pictures (I'm housesitting for my parents and they have a scanner - woohoo!) But, I don't promise pictures because I've never done it before. But, I will tell you if it was a success or not... success meaning that I'd actually wear them about and failure meaning that I'd just allow them to hang about in my closet for ages until they were turned into something else.  Cheesy

How about adjusting palazzo pants pattern? New Look has them. (6182, 6190,6383). You can eliminate the zipper if your fabric is stretchy enough and zigzag a piece of elastic in the waist which you will foldover. When you lay out the pattern, determine how flared and how long you want the gauchos to be.  Gradually increase the width from the outside and inside (from the crotch) of the leg equally. Let me know if this works for you.

i love the new gaucho pants that are in style right now.  i want to make a pair from a big, full bodied skirt.  anyone have any tips?

here's a pair i found online:
http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=8467&itemType=PRODUCT&iProductID=8467


They are only $9.99, You should buy a few! They have all the colors and sizes. That is a good price for those, probably cheaper to buy them.  Smiley

I have actually made gauchos out of a skirt-- though this was before the craze and i made them to go under skirts to stay warm in winter. Because of that, they aren't very finished and i made them out of polar fleece. It is the exact same thing that posted earlier. You cut a triangle out of the middle. And as stated earlier: make sure you leave enough room in the crotch! I made mine a bit too small... it's an uncomfortable situation.

Cloverdragon, I'm ecstatic you shared. I'm so glad to hear that someone had relative success with the skirt-triangle method.

Sheesh. I didn't even know Gaucho pants existed until the craze hit. My bad. But, I'll still be wearing them when the craze dies... if it hasn't already.
