Our girls are really dress and skirt kind of girls, they basically wear dresses and skirts. Our eldest does sometimes wear pants, but then they have to be flared! I already sewed these ones in French Terry and these ones in stretch rib. Now our two eldest have new favorite pants: the Flora Flared pants from Sofilantjes*! These pants are great and include so many options to go all the way in making different kinds of pants.
The flora pants has two options, light blared and flared. I started off with the flared option because I knew our eldest would love that option the most. The blue glitter pants was the second version I sewed. For our middle daughter I added something extra. I used a piece of band and used that for the pockets (instead of a strip of fabric) and sewed the band on the side seam (before closing the pants). I love the vibe the band gives to the pants.
The pants include front and back pockets. The front pockets can be sewed to the front side of the pants, like I did in the glitter and petrol pants. There is also a lining pattern piece included so the pockets do not show, I did that in the flower pants. For the back pockets there are actual back pockets and fake pockets. I love the fake pockets so much that I used those for all four pants that I sewed.
Another option in the pattern is the waistband. The options are a regular waistband, like I used in all pants I sewed, a bottom waist band, to make it look like actual pants, and lastly a yogaband waistband.
For the last flower pair I made I asked our eldest if she wanted me to make her a less flared pair. But no she wanted another flared one. She now has 3 flora flared pants in her closet and wore them to school right after making pictures. That definitely says enough.
