You may know this wrap around skirts that girls wear in summer?
If you live somewhere in southern asia it's no problem to wear them as a man, but here in central europe the people are not used to it and may give you strange looks.
But this wrap around technique is really good and so I made me a manly wrap around pants. If you use the right fabric it's even better than shorts! But you can of course make the the pants as long as you want, also short. ;-)
I used blue linen for mine. It's cool and looks good and you don't have to bother about orientation of the fabric.
Step 1: Start with the pattern
Because I sewed my pants years ago, I couldn't make a detailed photo-documentation of all steps, but it's so easy, even beginners can do it. I provide sketches and pictures of the finished pants.
In the first picture you can see what the pattern looks like.
Because it is a rather free design you don't need to worry too much about the size. Start with a fabric that is 10cm bigger and trim it in the end. If it gets too big, just make a new hem and trim the rest.
You need two size values: Your waits and the length of your legs, or the length that you want your pants to be.
