A pattern for ladies sailor pants

cbr1608 | Posted in Patterns on

Is anyone aware of where to find a pattern for ladies sailor pants?

    Does anyone know why they made sailor pants so flared at the bottom? There must have been a reason for all that extra fabric.      rjf

      I have read that those bell bottoms were full so as to make it really easy and fast for sailors to roll the pants up to their knees when the deck was wet. It makes some sense, when you consider how hard it is to roll blue jeans up.

    I've been asking myself that question andhaven't gotten around to researching it. I'll bet Burda or Neue Mode might have one...I've got a pair of sailor-style pants I bought on sale for some incredibly cheap price at a fashiony chain store a few years back, and ended up loving. I might have to trace a pattern off them...the wider leg is right in style now, as is the slightly lower waistline.

    I'll keep you posted if I find a commercial pattern, though.

    OK, Here's the start of an answer:

    Vogue 7573 has a sailor-style front with faced waistline and buttons. 

    Vogue 7546 has that same from opening, but seems to have pockets where the vertical row of buttons would go.

    Either one of these patterns would probably work fine as the basis for sailors pants--the silhouettes are somewhat different, so you might go by which looks like the better contour, and adjust as needed.

    Neue Mode does have a sailor pant pattern, I purchased it a few months ago (not made yet). The leg looks to taper a bit to the knee then flair out, not exactly like a "real "sailor pant. Also, there is no laced up vent in the back waist. Sorry that I don't have the pattern number handy.
