I have a pair and they actually are comfy and flattering.  Especially in the summer.  They are cool because they are open and catch the breeze.    They look a bit more like a skirt than pants.

I just ordered two pairs of "wrap pants (which are basically the same thing as thail fishermen pants, just tie differently).



My mom still has to pay, but I'm planning on using them as dance pants..I have to change out and I hate dressing rooms. I would be able to wear them for dance. And they rock.
It doesn't feel like exercise when you're wearing chiffon.

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?

I own a pair of these pants, and I can say...
1. they are NOT figure flattering, but I like them so I dont mind. If you're big on bottom, and you don't want to look bigger, Don't wear them, because they draw the eye right to the butt and thigh.

2. they shrink ALOT lengthwise, so get a larger pair than you think you need.

3. they never EVER stop bleeding, so unless you need tohand wash, or wash separately and dry separately. ( I've had mine for over 2 years...probably washed them 2 dozen times, still bleeding)

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?

I was looking at these pants just a couple days ago, and seriously am thinking of getting them.  I have one of their skirts, and it's the same material, it seems.  The material flows great, and moves light.  (does that make sense?)  It really is soft.  I like the style, and think that it wouldn't be too much bulk  in the back.  I think it would be fairly simple to make, just a fairly loose harem-style pants and skirting starting from the front, and tapering off to the sides.

I am jen and I am a pattern addict...
Here's another that I picked up a long time ago at a pattern sale, but haven't made yet.  I swear I will do it this Summer, which in Australia doesn't start until December, so I have plenty of time.

I had already decided that I didn't really need a pattern, but when it was going cheap.... who knows, I might end up making the cute tops as well.

Hi Jen, havent seen you in awhile, how are you.  That pattern is cute.  Look on this thread under "fancy pants" https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106328.0

They are similar and certainly similar to the pattern.  I have two pair, one I had made in Mexico and the other pair I bought at Wal mart in Puerta Vallarta and I love them.  I generally get complimented so they must look ok, I just know they are comfortable and I like them.

Okay I LOVE these pants! They are now on my to do list!!! Cheesy Grin I really need to get to work on that list! Oh well, but to help with the fabric continuously bleeding. Add some salt to the wash. Wait til all the water is in (if using your washer) add your detergent then add salt (adjust amt of salt depending on size selected for washing this garment) for a small load i typically use 1/4 cup salt. This trick has never damaged my clothes before, but just be sure to keep an eye on it. This may not completely stop the bleeding for all fabrics. But it will for most or almost stop it all. I hate to see fabric continuously bleed like that. Then you know it's losing all of its color and the better part of its beauty and glory!!!!!!!!!!! Cheesy Good Luck and when I do mine........ who knows how long it will be..............I will put pics up TTFN
