I went to the latest shows mainly to go to the sourcing areas; but of course I can never resist...and on my journey I found these funky pants! They are the BEST. I like to keep the cost of my pants to around $28 or so but really---there are a couple things that make these so WORTH it -- First, they are rayon, it's natural rayon but it's got a different hand than the usual drapey stuff. It almost feels like there might be hemp in it, but the tags state 100% rayon. Anyway, I like this fabric. The second thing is the style and dye. I've not seen a dye like this one. It looks like it was done with an eyedropper. It's FAB!! The ground started out natural and then the brown was tie dyed (or eye dropped!!) and so there are shades of light and dark brown.
Another really cool feature about these ones is the soft elastic smaller waistband. I don't know about you, but some of those hippie pants with the wide elastic start to kill me after I've had them on awhile. These ones...the elastic is only about a half inch wide and it seems softer to me. There's also a draw string added. So if you like yours sloppy big, order up and you can cinch 'em with the tie.
I also like how these are sized. So many of my favorite hippie companies have gone to the S-L sizing. All that means is they make you buy more and there really isn't all that much variation in the marked sizes. So these come S/M or L/XL (like the old Sacred* Threads sizing that I personally *loved*). You have your choice in this sale, but I ask that you please let me know right away so the other size can be relisted. I've put these on a 'pay now' because I want to be able to relist fast.
OH! And did I mention pockets? Another thing I always love about the *right* hippie pants. They gotta have pockets. AND although they are hidden at the top side seam, the pocket itself wraps around the upper leg--but on the inside of the pant. It's sewn very nicely too, to reinforce it. I guess that's the one thing that stands out with these, and that's HOW WELL they are made. There are no shaggy seams inside. Everything is finished and the outside seams are also reinforced. They are lovely. I mean it!
Now for some measurements and please note: I take all measurements across the front only, so please double but then subtract your own wiggle room!

Hips: 23" and this was taken at the bottom of the pockets - 9" from the waistband.
Length: Outer is 39", inseam is 26" (tall gals don't panic -- the rise is 16"). They should fit with some "drop in the crotch" -- not tight!
