Vogue 2064 - wide legged pants

I've been on the look out for decent wide legged pants for ages! In plus size even.

Then I found Vogue 2064 in my stash of all places. who would've thought I had a decent pattern in my stash all along.

Well this would have to be one of the easiest patterns I've made ever. (I seem to be gravitating towards easy quick satisfying patterns lately!)
There are 2 seams, the inner leg seam, and the crotch seam. That's it. No side seams, no adding on waistbands etc.
I used size 22, but with my ridiculous shaped stomach and hips I added on 20cm total (eeeekkk!) to the very top and slowly graduated it back to nil.

The pants have an elastic waist, but I ended up not even having to add the elastic in, they pull on perfectly, and stay on. Fantastic! They whipped up in about 1.5hrs by the time I'd handstitched the hem.

I love them. Nice and comfy, but cool


  1. Wow! I adore these! I love the colour choice, and I'm impressed that the seams hang straight down from your hip, and especially that these wide-legged trousers don't look too baggy in the butt and crotch region (which takes them from comfort pants to classy pants, in my books). Good job!

  2. Hi - Love your blog. I searched for plus size wide leg pants and am so happy to have found you. Off to the fabric store for me tomorrow for Vogue 2064. Carol
