yeah me too! i found this pattern:

#6480

they are pants but you should be able to shorten them and widen them at the bottom. make sure that when you cut them out, you cut wider than the pattern shows.

I've been looking for a decent pattern for gauchos for several hours today (both at stores and on-line) and haven't found anything that wouldn't need substantial modifications--something I'm not terribly comfortable with at this point in my sewing history! I've also searched culottes and those seem to be generally more tailored than I want. Are there any more pattern suggestions? I don't think the Simplicity 6480 junior sizes will work too well for my more ample body. Thanks!

from a skirt it should be easy.
voila a tutorial:



hope that helps. essentially just cut a V down the center and sew up the sides together (right sides together of course.)

I, too, love these pants. That tutorial looks pretty simple. Wonder how well it works... lol... i'm not the best at stuff like that. Always turns out differently than what i see in my mind.

Ok, have you tried this?  Because, it looks too easy to be true.  But, if it is, i shall never own a true skirt again.   Grin

I have never tried to make pants from an existing skirt but I don't think cutting a triangle out of the center would work.  The gauchos I've seen online (and on people in real life) are fitted at the top like pants -- somewhat flat across the hips and abdomen and curved around the rear end -- then just the leg portion is wide and skirt-like. 

If you laid a skirt flat and cut out a triangle then the front and the back are going to be the same shape.  I think to get "the look" they need to be a little more fitted and pants-looking at the top. 

Like I said, I've never tried so if someone has please prove me wrong!  I've also been wanting to make gauchos and would love to come up with a way to pull it of...still thinking...

I have some old gaucho-type pants.  They fitted like a skirt, so........and I love the fact that everyone thinks that they are a skirt, and I can still move around without worrying.  Therefore, I think the triangle cutting would ideally work, since that is the fit I want anyways.  I don't want them to be fitted, per sey.

if figured the triangle would work because all the gauchos i see are really wide and look like a skirt anyways.

cutting it out of a skirt won't work. your best bet is to make a pattern from a well fitting pair of pants. (there has to be a curve in the crotch area)

it should look something like this....
 

otherwise, the fabric around your thighs would pull inward and look ackward, and fit funny.
