Inverted Pleat Gauchos

pleat front pants

I saw this pair of inverted pleat gauchos on the Newport News website and liked the styling. I like that the fullness is released below the hip and tummy area.

They reminded me of a Betsey Johnson pattern from the 1970s - Butterick3286 - that I happen to have in my vast pattern collection. I just might use the old Butterick pattern as a starting point for a pair of full length pants with an inverted pleat.

  1. What a great pair of pants! That pattern is perfect!

  2. I love these. I think i may need to sew up a pair for autumn/winter, they'll look great with long boots.
