White Linen Wide Leg Pants

It's still not totally real to me, but unless something changes my husband and I will be going to Hawaii this summer! We have a friend who lives there who graciously invited us to stay with him. We'll be leaving the kids with their grandparents and taking a much needed couple vacation. And of course, this trip means BEACH SEWING!

After the first batch of swimsuits, next on my trip sewing list was a pair of linen pants. I decided to try the wide leg, high waisted Lola Pants pattern from 5 Out of 4 Patterns. I wasn't 100% sure if I would like the high waist, it's not my fave style, but I'm SO glad I didn't alter anything. I LOVE these pants!

Originally, I thought I'd make shorts, but I think the silhouette is better in the long version. The long version does require 2+ yards, and all I had on hand was this white linen. It's from Fabric, which is the most generic fakey name ever, but I promise it's a real website with awesome fabric. I bought my 3 yards in a bundle with printed patterns and just hadn't gotten to sewing them yet. I decided to use it for these pants, despite my nerves over white pants.

Yes, I have four pets and three kids and live in the country. White pants don't typically have a spot in my life. As soon as I was done with these photos, I neatly folded up the pants and put them in a plastic bag! They will go in my suitcase and be safe and sound until Hawaii.

I made a size Small for my 38" hip and the fit is pretty spot on. I made no changes to the length and I'm a shorty at 5'4". The inseam measurement is listed in the pattern, so if you're tall I recommend checking on that before cutting.

Construction is simple and the instructions are excellent. I omitted the pockets because I knew I'd see them through the fabric and it would drive me nuts. Without the pockets, these are a quick sew; the belt loops and waist tie are the most time consuming part. I don't think I would omit them though, they elevate the look for sure.

I made a quick crop top using the Kila Tank and some stretch mesh from The Fabric Fairy. The swimsuit underneath is amazeballs, but you'll have to wait until next week to see it!

I received the Lola Pants pattern for free as part of the 5oo4 Ambassador team. All opinions are my own. Affiliates links have been used. Thank you for supporting my blog!
