Thai Fisherman’s PantsAugust 21, 2017 / bythornberry / Categories : Feeds
On our first visit to Thailand I bought rather a lot of fabric. One of the lengths that I bought was specifically woven for Thai Fisherman’s pants. My husband quite likes wearing loose trousers – he’s one of those bearded guys you see on holidays in hippy clothes – so this fabric purchase was especially for him.
I used Burda Style’s pattern for Thai Fisherman’s Pants. There are plenty of tutorials around for sewing this style, but I always prefer to use a pattern. I’m just not freestyle by nature! They describe this pattern as follows: These easy and comfortable lounge pants are incredibly versatile and the perfect beginner project. It only consists of a few pattern pieces and is quickly sewn together. Makes great sleeping pants as well! Download the pattern and follow the instructions to make the fishermen’s pants and you will be good to go in a couple of hours.
I’m not really a massive fan of Burda’s pdf patterns, but they are well priced. This was very easy to sew, and I did all the construction on the overlocker. The fabric is a fairly open weave and frayed very quickly. It needed that overlocking!
That back view above really shows how crookedly my husband stands! As you probably know, the great thing about this style of pants is the size adjustability. The front is folded over then tied to secure, with the rest of the waistband then folding over the ties.
This was almost a zero-waste pattern – there were only tiny scraps of fabric left over after cutting out, so the pre-cut length of fabric was spot on! If you like relaxed, loose and adjustable clothing, it’s worth giving the Thai Fisherman’s Pants style a try.
(The cotton voile shirt was also bought in Chiang Mai – I didn’t make it).
