As I begin sewing for Spring and dream of pretty sundresses, the truth is, in Winter, I mostly wear a uniform of pants and V-neck or turtleneck sweaters. I do wear jeans a lot, but I like slouchy pants even better. They are comfortable and they taper at the hem so they can't drag in puddles (it rains a lot here in South Western France).
When I think of slouchy pants, Charlie Chaplin comes to mind. The bum with the big heart :)
I'd say his look is very current! You can see many similar styles at online shops such as Totokaelo or Creatures of Comfort.
I pinned similar pants back when the Fall 2013 RTW shows were happening. They were all over the runways and I am very happy that comfortable clothes have recently been given the spotlight.
I sewed these a few months ago using Burda 7250 which I lengthened so they scrunch at the hem.
The fabric was an unlabeled remnant. My guess is a rayon/poly blend with possibly a bit of wool thrown in. It has a really nice marled texture and great drape.
