How to DIY Jodhpur Pants

By now you probably know that I rather like funky pants. You know, the pants with little extra somethin' somethin'.  I'm not afraid of harem pants or printed pants. So, if you're wondering if I like jodhpurs, then you know the answer is a resounding "Yes please". Read on for how I would DIY this look. If you're looking for a last minute Halloween costume, just add some riding boots, helmet and a plaid jacket and you're ready to go.

How to DIY Jodhpur Pants

Step 1: Our inspiration today are the Palermo Hudson Twill Jodhpurs from Ralph Lauren.

Step 2: To make this a super easy no-sew DIY, start by getting yourself a pair of pants like these skinny moto pants. Next grab some fabric or paper and make yourself a pattern. Just draw out the shape you want, cut it out and pin it on your pants to see if you like how it looks.

Step 3: Grab some brown suede and iron-on adhesive (such as Thermo-web). Using your pattern, cut our suede and adhesive for each leg, position and iron on. Check out this mini tutorial I did for tweed elbow patches as an example.
