A few of us own Thai Fisherman's Pants
, and while we rarely, if ever, wear them out in public, we can agree they are by far the most comfortable pants we own.
Here's a pattern for making Thai Fisherman Pants
So recently, while wearing these pants, Leigh was watching the movie Red Sorghum
, and was pretty inspired by the version of pant the fellas wear in that movie. We can only refer to them as Traditional Chinese Pants, but others are associating them with Harem Pants. There are loads of how-tos out there for Harem Pants, but Katja at Of Dreams and Seams
gives out a nice instruction for making Traditional Chinese Pants, and we can see from the zero waste in the fabric use, that she is onto the real thing.
Could we take a pattern for the Traditional Chinese Pants and modify it to make a durable, semi technical pair of pants, in oil skin, for use is cold, wet and sometimes snowy environments?
Let's see! To be continued.
