FINALLY!!! DIY Plus Size Wide Leg Pants



Honestly, is it too much to ask for a seriously chic, high waisted, wide leg pants? Like seriously? I have had this particular conversation with fellow plus size ladies and we have come to the same conclusion, apparently it is too much to ask!
Point me to a gorgeous, chic, high waisted, really wide leg, gorgeous fabric in a stunning color pant that is made to fit my 52inch hips and you just might be a magician lol. So you know what? I got tired of waiting for a brand to step up and I made one for myself, just the way I like it.

This was my first time making pants but I must say, Vogue patterns V1572 is just divine to work with. So simple, easy to follow directions that I strayed from just a little bit. I love this pant so much, it has been on heavy rotation since I took it off my sewing machine.

One of my frustrations with store bought pants is that the fabrics are mostly too thin for people with any form of cellulite and I draw the line at wearing shape-wear underneath my pants, that is a hard no for me. So I picked this gorgeous linen-ish, silk-ish fabric from the $2.97/yard room at G street fabrics and believe me when I say I got all they had lol! I still have some left over for a silky skirt for the Summer. This fabric has an amazing structured drape and has enough body to hide any imperfections.

For the top, I worked with McCall's M7807 and I did alter it just a little bit but this patten is about to get torn up! I mean, I see a lot of tops and dresses for the Summer with this pattern.

I also used a  $2.97/yard shirting fabric from G street fabrics for this shirt but since it was a bit thin, I self lined the bodice but left the sleeves alone. 

Top: McCall's M7807 I cut a size 20.

Alterations: I self lined the bodice since the fabric was a bit too thin and I didn't want any visible underthings lol. Since I was making the tunic, the hips were way too snug for my 52 inch hips so I added the slits on the side to free up some room and i actually liked it better this way.

Thoughts: I absolutely will make multiples of this pattern, it was a project that only cost me a few hours and was very easy to follow. I am thinking of making a hi lo linen dress with pockets for an easy Summer wear.

Pants: Vogue's V1572 I cut a size 22

Alterations: I did an elastic waist instead of the recommended waist as that is my preference, I also added about 2 inches to the hem so I can wear it with heels. Finally, I added side pockets since I add pockets to everything I make lol, just another preference.

Thoughts: This pattern is another multiple remakes for me, I love how it fits and sits on my body and it was yet another project of a few hours.
