Gaucho pants


Gaucho pants

Here is my latest experiment, I've made a pair of gaucho pants.
It is made of stretch denim and is really comfortable to wear. I'm not a big fan of the HUGE and WIDE shape of real gaucho pants, but this subtle pair in indigo color is OK by me. Actually, I think I love them! They look cute, don't they.

To be honest, I think I had the least affinity with fly fronts on any pants, simply because they seemed completely complicated and difficult to assemble! I knew it's just the silly ignorance and I must have sewn many garments with more "complicated" details, but it's been quite difficult to conquer the feeling. This pair has got a lining, which could be more "difficult" to sew than those without linings, but I could finish the fly front without a problem (I had quite many thinking-times, though). Yay for me who is more confident with fly fronts!

  1. Wow, that seems like a such challenging project. I have tried making some simple trousers before, and they ended up being a mess. :D
    You do such neat work. It makes me want to be more meticulous with my projects than I am.
