Ella really loves loose fitting, comfortable pants these days. I remembered a while back there was a pattern by a danish sewing pattern company, Roos. They had a pattern for these fun and totally 70's style pants. Since it is impossible to still find these patterns I had to come up with my own "draft".
Take you favorite pant pattern and shorten it to short, shorts length. I used an Ottobre pattern, Issue 1/2009 (one of my favorites and you can buy it here) pattern 29. Than I added the extra leg length in two tiers. Simple as pie.
These were the measurements I had for Ella's pants (she is almost 9). I also made these kind of pants with a woven and out of corduroy before. They look awesome in all different kind of fabrics and I plan on making her a view more for summer :)
