@Leila_sews has designed a pant pattern which starts from a 54″ hip and will be available in 3 sizes (a 56.5″ hip and 59″ hip) . Keep an eye on the hashtags #GlebePant or #GlebePants to see some tester makes as they’re posted.
Although I have a 59″ hip when seated, I made the 54″ pants and very much like the dimensions and width of the leg. Suffice to say, the finished measurements will be important for choosing the ‘look’ you’d like.
The pants are made (as I understand it) with a built in full seat adjustment and a tummy adjustment, which means that you can skip a lot of common adjustments (or if you’re me, who never does any adjustments, it means that your pants might fit quite good)!
I sewed a size 1 and cutting on the open (so not folded over), I used 2.4 metres of 150cm wide linen. Leila cut her size 1 pants on the fold and with her 140cm(ish) wide fabric, she used 2.75m. We think that even with 115cm fabric, you’re probably going to be able to make these with 2.75m of fabric!
