What an outstanding find this fabric was! It's a semi-sheer glitter knit with subtle stripes of dusky lavender and olive green. When I found it, I immediately thought of all of those paintings I have seen of the Imperial Harem in Topkapi Palace. The palace beauties are depicted in many scenes wearing striped harem pants under their long entaris. In this 21st century version, the fabric is glittering with golden threads and sheer enough to show a naughty bit of leg. Think what a great Renaissance costume they'd make!

I used a pattern that has no side seam so there is nothing to flaw the beautiful flow and drape of this fabric. The fabric is wrinkle resistant too so they should travel well for those out-of-town gigs. The stripes are so subtle, and the soft sparkle of the gold threads is so subdued, they would look positively smashing with a Tribal or Gypsy costume.

For these harem pants I used 1" non-roll elastic in the hip casing and 1/2" swimwear elastic at the ankles. They should fit a 34" to 40" hip with the measurement taken at the place where you normally wear your hip scarf. If alteration is needed, the hip band casing is finished with an opening so you can easily add another piece of elastic, or snip a bit out. The inseam measures 39" so there is plenty of fabric to create that alluring drape at the ankles. The model is about 5'7".

I've got some other harem pants available too. Click on the link and have a look: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ZambakDesigns?section_id=6928119

If I can answer any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm happy to do it.
