Free Sewing Pattern – Wide Leg Pants & Palazzo Pants Pattern11.06.2018 / byFree Designs Admin
Wide leg pants are sometimes called Palazzo pants although the designs can vary a little. This wide leg pants pattern is sure to guarantee you a long and elegant look. At least that’s what I am told every time I wear these pants. These wide leg pants are not as wide as the old 1970’s ones but are more similar to the classic width from the 1930’s. This makes a great pairing with a tucked in blouse, a short tank top or my personal favorite — a body suit. I have added my favorite type of pockets, the slanted pockets. Stylish and useful. Also, they have a waistband that gently hugs you, without making the dreaded muffin top. And finally, they are long enough to fall just at the edge of your shoes without dragging on the floor. This wide leg pattern is very functional and the look will change depending on the fabric you use. Use jacquard knit or a pique knit for a tailored look. Stretchable knit and bamboo for a summer look. This is probably an advanced beginner or intermediate project. I hope you give it a try.
