The NIMO. harem pant

I know it's been ages since I posted the pictures of my "secret" embroidery project. The truth is, the final product has been sitting in my closet for weeks, waiting to be photographed. I finally had 3 photo sessions - being the model and the photographer at the same time has it's difficulties :) And finally I chose some pics that were etsy-worthy and posted my harem pants! ! They are my personal, modernized interpretation of the super comfy middle eastern harem pant (aka dhoti pants or low crotch pants). Ever since I got my first pair (and sewed about three for myself) they have become an essential part of my wardrobe. I love them, because you can wear them to any occasion, formal, fancy, and for everyday life. Another superb thing about them, apart from being super comfortable, is that you can wear them the whole year round! Just throw on a tank top and flip flops in summer or grab a cute pair of boots and a nice jacket in winter.
Right now I have to short versions in my etsy store, one is a military-khaki-green and the other is a rosé-beige. Both feature a hand embroidered bird design and are made out of a lustrous, shiny knit fabric.
I'm currently working on a longer version, too and on different embroidery designs.
