You all know I’m a big fan of skin-tight leggings, but sometimes you just don’t feel like showing it off that much. With that in mind, I made some lounge pants that are still sexy and very sensual. Maybe you call them harem pants, but they could also be worn by a genie or a very fabulous pirate.
They are loose and breezy, so perfect for hot afternoons by the pool or swashbuckling on the playa. The thin elastic keeps the pants up without digging into soft bellies, and the wide waistband prevents any muffin top action from happening. Because there is so much stretch in the fabric and construction, they will fit just about any body and still be incredibly comfortable!
They’re made out of this fantastic pearly metallic lycra from Fabric Planet (but that fabric is long gone, sorry). I used fold-over elastic for the waist and leg bands.
I also made a pair for myself (and matching bikini!) and I always love wearing them.
I love these! I’ve never been to Burning Man, but by the looks of your posts, it seems like a blast! Did you use a pattern for these or did you make your own? In any case- fabulous!
For these pants I made my own pattern that I modified over a few incarnations. Burning Man is a super blast!
Seeing as I’m currently 39.8 weeks pregnant, my first thought was “ooh! comfy awesome maternity pants!!!” LOL
In these last weeks, even my regular maternity clothes don’t fit me anymore–they give me “saggy crotch” because I have to wear them so low under my huge belly–these solve that problem nicely!
