DIY Leather Jogging Pants

DIY Leather Jogging Pants

When it comes to fitted clothes I have to say I’m partial, but lately a slouchy pant has been my goto. They can be cool, sexy, comfortable and sophisticated all in one, so incorporate a butter soft leather, draw string, side seam pockets and elastic in one fully lined garment and you have a winner.  Using Burda Pattern 7250 with major alterations to the pattern.

Pattern alterations:  Added roughly 6 inches to the pattern to create a baggier look.
                               Added a seam to the bottom half of the pant, did this not for design but to
                               compensate  for size constraints of the leather hide.
                               Changed to flat pleats.
                               Removed the zipper option.
                               Removed the waist band and added an elastic waist band and draw string.
                               Added elastic at the ankle.
                               Added a lining.
