Salam alaikum guys.
I have been seriously adopting a more loose casual mode of dressing these days, I have always loved oversized clothing and the heat has been a really nice excuse for wearing something super light.
The fabric has to be right and not opaque and free enough not to make ‘fit’-nah. Get it? No? Okay :’)
So, I decided to put up a tutorial where you can make your own palazzo pants and give out a free pair as well. Their movement in the breeze is awesome and when wide enough can be tricked into looking like a skirt! Palazzos are just awesome.
– 3m of printed fabric
– Some rope or ribbon to use as the waistband
– Black thread
– A seam ripper
– A sewing machine
Fold your fabric four-way (in half and then another half; so that you have four layers of fabric). Grab a trouser you previously own, fold in half as shown above and trace to draft a pattern. Make sure the “side” of the trouser has to be folded while the inner part of the trouser is where you cut. Cut the inner part in a straight line (not tapered).
You can also fold a fabric in half and cut it twice, your call.
That’s it basically.
If you have any further questions, you can comment below or contact me.
To win yourself a pair of printed palazzos, I’m nice, aren’t I? Simply post any of the pictures in the post where I am wearing the pants (choose a really nice picture 😀 ) and post either on twitter or instagram with the hashtag #MuslimahanieDIY and tag me so that I can see it. It would be nice to share the link to this post also.
A winner is chosen at random and contacted during the end of a week in sha Allah.
See you next time!
