Good job! The pleats on those pants are beautiful. I also love your color choice—it's bright enough to stand out but neutral enough you could wear it with lots of colors.


ratttto

Thanks! Went into shop without any idea what fabric I want and spent half an hour contemplating available options 😂


ratttto

Self drafted pattern, using base construction in my own measurements + inspiration picture from Pinterest :) Basically I made top part a bit baggier and added two 3 cm pleats on each side. Fabric - 1.5m viscose-polyester blend for dress suits (at least that how the fabric was described in the shop).


BouncingDancer

You people are killing me with all your beautiful self drafted clothes.


LesboLexi

Lol, I feel the same way. Whenever this sub pops up on my feed it goes something like this: Me, who's greatest textile-related accomplishment was stapling shut my jeans' ripped ankle seam in primary school: "I wish I could do that."

Did you get the fabric from a chain store or a local place? I love that color.


ratttto

I did get it from a chain store, as it is the most conveniently located for me, but the patterned fabric section there is not great - not a problem this time, as I wanted a solid colour pants, but the selection of fabrics there is quite poor tbh.


a-really-big-muffin

Was it Joann's? Their in-store selections are turning into nothing but quilting cotton now.


ratttto

We don’t have Joann’s here, but I assume this chain is something similar


may_child91

Gorgeous color and style! I used to own similar pants in burgundy that I swear go well with any outfit!!


ratttto

I do hope I’ll get plenty of wear out of them :)


Significant-Royal-89

Beautiful slacks! I thought they were your dog walking pants because picture one looks like you are holding a leash! I was thinking you were a pretty fancy dog-walker! 😂


ratttto

Lol, now I can see it too 😂😂 no dogs here, but you can see a rat carrier under the “leash” 😆 but I will definitely keep my new pants away from my pets, I have spent too much effort making them 😄


Verkloot

Hey I’m studying fashion design and I need to make pants or a skirt, I was wondering if I could use your pants as inspiration?


ratttto

Sure thing! I copied them myself from some image from the internet :)


aerin2309

Agree with what so many have said: great color choice and awesome design on the pockets!


Orimori24

If those came with a lining they would be dream pants for me. Thanks for sharing!


ratttto

These are not lined, and seams are finished with serger. Maybe some day I’ll make some lined pants :)


HoneyBee277

I love the look and colour, you’ve done amazing ! Also love the board game collection hehe


ratttto

Thanks 😁

ratttto

Pockets! The biggest incentive for women everywhere to make their own clothes!


natureismychurch_

Awesome!


Wholeigh

I love them!!! Nice work 🤍


TheYankcunian

Nailed it! You did great!


aracconinaspoon

These are lovely, wonderful colour and fit!


Moi_Sunshine

I love those pants


sewboring

What a gorgeous drape. Sort of the Holy Grail of pleated pants. You were wise to keep the crotch a bit low for the sake of the pleats.


Lefty11x

Dapper AF


zacboring

Dang, I want pants like this so bad. Great work!


RepunzelsButt

These are my favourite types of pants! I love them so much, such beautiful pocket work. Now I must try to recreate something like this!


Mushtaqo

These are such a beautiful pair of pants!


GlitchyInsomniac

Pockets! BIG Pockets! Love them! Great job!


swimandlaxmom

Gorgeous! They look very well made.


squeeziestbee

Amazing job ( and great taste in boardgames too)!


No-Blackberry444

These are awesome!!! Do you have a pattern you worked with, or was it freehanded? I'm inspired to try my hand at some pants now...


ratttto

As I mentioned in my comment - I changed base pants pattern by adding pleats and making top part a bit baggier :)


No-Blackberry444

Whoops, didn't see that! I'll definitely have to try it out!


Different_Dark7809

These look great! Awesome job!


SubiSforzando

Some Yu Yu Hakusho vibes there! The darts and pleats look seriously great though. They look simulatenously comfy and sharp. I hope my first "real" pants turn out that good!


Satanisbackxoxo

These pants are remarkable! How big are the pockets


ratttto

Measured it to fit my palm comfortably, it can hold iPhone 11 with room to spare 😄


Satanisbackxoxo

Those are some deep pockets than haha


Asher0950

Looks sharp, great job!!


forestcall

Nice work!! I highly recommend adding crotch gusset.


UglyLaugh

These are gorgeous!


sel_darling

Great job! What style/cut would you say it is? I love it and am looking for something similar.


ratttto

Honestly I don’t know, I am not strong in style terminology, but maybe someone else reading comments knows? 😅


liljaalbers

i’d call them slacks, trousers or pantaloons? But baggy! So maybe search something like “baggy pleated slacks” or “baggy trousers pleats”


DaisyDukeF1

These look so comfy!! Great job!!


Psa-lms

I just tackled my first non pajama pants and it’s not easy! You did a FANTASTIC job! They fit like a dream and look gorgeous! Wear them proudly!!!


abbeighleigh

these looks super nice


CariaB

I love pants like this. I have a blue pair just like this, that I wear all the time lol


wehadathing-inspace2

OH THOSE ARE NICE!!!


WildColonialGirl

Awesome work and I love the color! And making the pockets as big as you want them? This is another great incentive for me to learn to sew.


theatermouse

Those are AWESOME!!!


Broken_KitchenSink

These are my dream pants omg


BaronesVonFawn

Kitchen-Camp-7931
