Wide Leg Pants

I couldn't resist making these pants.
I found this fantastic light weight, denim, linen, cotton, spandex blend at my local fabric store.  The fabric is so soft and was easy to work with.  I used the pants part of the McCall's 6760.  I created my own waist facing, took in the hips about 1/2", shortened the crotch depth by 1" and the overall length of the pants by 4".





I am already planning to make this pattern again, I may make the pants a bit narrower.

    1. Amanda, don't give up. I think if you can find a really simple pattern that you can easily make the necessary adjustments, you will be golden. Good Luck.

  4. These are really smart looking, like wearing a skirt but not and having a good fit thru the hips! Great job, kiddo!
