DIY Palazzo Pants

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.

All. That. Sun.

You need:

– 3m of printed fabric
–Scissors
– Some rope or ribbon to use as the waistband
– Pins
– Black thread
– A seam ripper
– A sewing machine

How to:

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.

In the middle of the waist band, rip a few stitches and insert your ribbon tying the ends together in a bow or knot.

 

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!

Love,

Haneefah.
