Thanks for the information. I thiunk I'll make a pair myself!! With elastic in the waistband, does it gather or does the waist lay flat? ~ M.T.

Very nice adaptation of these pants. I think your gauchos look great with the espridrilles as well. Good job.

Thanks for all the kind comments- glad I inspired some of you to jump onboard the gaucho bandwagon! I widened both the inside and outside seams- if I were to pull the legs out flat, they'd look like triangles. Jackie, I'm thinking that I will use the same type of stretchy knit for my next pair and just lengthening and narrowing the waist in order to make a roll dolwn waistband.

These came out really great. I've been following the goucho pant thread on the message board. I think you're the first one to produce something. When you widened the legs - did you just widen the outside seam or both the outside and inside leg seam?

I love them. So cute when pants look like a skirt--thanks to you I'm going to try a pair myself. Thank you very much!

Hey, courtkal, Way to go! They're absolutely smashing! I like them with the espadrilles, too. I'm looking forward to seeing your next version!

I like your Gauchos. How would the foldover waistband be made. Would you use some very stretchy lycra knit? The black looks good with your strappy shoes. I think the length looks good on you.

Draw back those horses, I think I'll jump on the gaucho bandwagon, too! These look fabulous - can I borrow your espadrilles? :)

I had no idea that gauchos, a style I rather like, had returned to fashion. Yours look very cute on you. Clever use of your KS pattern.

Your gaucho pants looks very pretty, congratulations on your redrafting well fit Kwik sew pattern. If you lengthen the legs from this new gaucho pants and use a very drapery fabric you can also have another fantastic pair of pants. The possibilities are endless.

Hooray for cute gauchos! Not nearly as cute as my denim vest and gaucho set (paired with rust colored suede knee high boots--I was da bomb in 3rd grade), but still very cute! Nothing like satiating that inner obsessive sewing monster, huh.
