wide pants, culotte pants, gaucho pants, or whatever how you call them,

I made them in lace fabric.


I got this lace on my holiday in Kochi, in June. I bought three or three and half meters of it at my favorite store, along with some pieces of other fabric. I almost sewed all of them already, but it's not today's story :)

In this lace, I made a simple sack dress for me and then made a pair of these wide and skirt-like pants. The latter turned out very pretty pants for my daughter who looks lovely in romantically chic(if you can imagine that) outfit.


The pattern I used is a japanese pattern which is called "simple wide pants with an elastic waist band that are easy to make" from Polkadrops. The name says it all!

I lined them with a light cotton lawn and made the elastic band casting with a heavy silk shantung. I'm pretty happy with the result, so is the daughter. She was kind enough to volunteer to pose in the blog photos again. Thank you, my girl.


Now I think I finished my high summer sewing with these.
How's your sewing going?

Talk to you soon!

Love,
yoshimi

    1. Thank you, Carolyn! She seems looking better in white and other light colors like I do. The interesting point is that she seems being good at wearing girly outfits, which is totally different from my case.

  4. I thought it was you in the photographs! You and your daughter are very alike! They are lovely pants. I wish my daughter had known about your fabric shop when she visted Kochi last year.
