For the longest time, wearing pants with narrow legs have been my daily uniform, but lately, I have been longing for a pair of pants with wide legs. There is just something very flattering about those wide legs that make you look like you have mile-long legs. The secret to the look is keeping the length long enough that the hem almost dusts the ground. I love them with high heels, but a pair of sneakers also looks great.
If Welt pockets intimidate you, here is a step by step picture tutorial teaching you how to become welt pocket ninja!
The Hepburn Pant is designed with two leg widths. I would define them as wide and very wide! With a sweep of 50 or 58 cm in size 8, you get that perfect shoe covering leg. My Yellow pair is made in a cotton lycra twill size 12/42 graded to 10/40 at the waist with view A 50 cm sweep. Aside from shortening the leg to my 5'1" / 160 cm tall body, I made no other changes.
I always grab the opportunity to use some pretty printed cotton for the pockets. I had this fantastic Kaffe Fasset yellow floral, and I just love that my pants are pretty on the inside. The pattern has detailed instructions and you end up with a very professional looking pair of pants.
The pattern is drafted for the full size range of 0-24 / 30-24. The pattern is suited for bottom weight fabric with a little stretch in the composition. I keep dreaming about making a pair of wide wale corduroy but have yet to find the perfect fabric. (if you come across any, please let me know!)
In case you were wondering, that striped blouse is made using the Daisy Dolman T-shirt with long sleeves.
The Hepburn pant sewing pattern is a high waisted pair of pants with back welt pockets, front fly with zipper, side pockets, and waistband with five belt loops. Choose between two leg sweep options; A is 19,5” / 50 cm and sweep B is 23” / 58 cm (in size 8 / 38). The instructions are illustrated, and if you are more of a photo type of girl, you can check the step by step photo tutorial of how to install a zipper.
