Harem pants are wonderfully cute, super comfortable, and amazingly quick and easy to sew. The pattern includes instructions to make both full length harem pants and shorts, and to add knee patches and faux pockets. They have been described by more than one of my mini testers as ‘the most comfortable thing ever!!’ They are particularly good for children who wear cloth nappies as they have plenty of room in the booty department! But that doesn’t stop them being popular with older children too.
An experienced sewist will easily be able to whip up a pair in under half and hour. If you’re a less experienced sewer then this is the perfect pattern to introduce you to sewing with knits. I include detailed, step by step instructions with lots of helpful diagrams. An overlocker/serger is useful but not necessary and I include directions for using a regular sewing machine. There are slim fitting and relaxed options, plus additional pattern pieces for little ones in cloth nappies. You can choose from a jersey waistband or elastic, and there are several ways to finish the legs. There is also the option to add a semi-circle skirt.
This pattern is designed for cotton/lycra jersey or any other light/medium weight knit fabric.
