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