For the contemporary dance portion of the snow scene in Nutcracker I'm making pants. But I really didn't want to take the time to make proper gaucho pants so I decided on wrap pants
I ended up using this brilliant wrap pants tutorial to figure out how. The pattern is so easy! Although I'm discovering that one side of the pattern needs to be about 2" taller to accommodate tush room.
Also a key detail; belt loops. Do not underestimate the way loops make wrap pants fit.
