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.
