Pants from Turkey, Africa, and India. Traffic along the trade route through the centuries brought pants fashions from Asia through the Middle East to Africa. Folkwear presents three pairs of pants from three continents, each unique yet all three sharing similarities of cut. All combine timeless comfort and practicality, and are perfect with today's contemporary wardrobe. The Turkish Pants are full and flowing, gathered at the waist with a drawstring and at the ankles with elastic. The African Sarouelles, sized for men and women, have a simple drawstring waist with legs that taper to the ankle. Inseam gussets allow freedom of movement. These comfortable pants are quick and easy to sew. The legs of the Indian Pants are gathered in the front above the thighs into a wide hip panel, which rises to a drawstring waist. Shaped cuffs above the ankle are faced and traditionally embellished with simple machine embroidery. Instructions and four embroidery designs are given in Sarouelles Lore and Embroidery inside the pattern. Sizes small through extra-large in included in the pattern. Suggested fabrics for African and Indian Pants: medium-weight fabrics such as cotton, silk, rayon, wool, or blends.
