Remember a couple of years ago when Sarah Beth showed you how to hack Harper into tapered pants? Well we’ve had another Harper pants idea on our minds – wide legs! You can do full length or cropped – either are cute and very in style right now with the patch pockets.
This version is super easy because it basically just involves lengthening your shorts with straight lines down to the hem. Meg has whipped up a free add-on pattern piece that will be sent out to all of our newsletter subscribers tonight (make sure to sign up if you haven’t yet!) so you can choose to download if you choose to make a pair of wide legs. But I’m also going to show how to make the addition quickly yourself, if you would rather do that!
I also have one more bonus to show you in this post, too – the option of leaving off the lining and using only the facing to finish the waistline. This works well if you are using a heavier weight fabric and don’t want the extra bulk of a lining. Or maybe you just don’t want a lining, which is fine, too! And this can applied to any version, shorts or skort, not just pants.
Are you as excited about this post as I am? Let’s take a look!
