Thai wraparound trousers are one of the most comfortable clothing designs. Also known as the sarong trousers or Thai fisherman trousers, these wraparound trousers are flexible enough to wear as maternity clothing. You can also wear them around the house, in yoga class, as a harem costume or a swimsuit cover-up. If you are looking to get your own Thai wraparound trousers, you do not need to spend a lot of money. You can simply design and sew them yourself, and customise them to your liking.

  1. 1

    Measure the exact length from your waist to your ankle and add 3 inches. Use this measurement to trim your fabric to the appropriate length.

  2. 2

    Cut the trimmed fabric in half, with each half measuring a yard wide. Place one half on top of the other, keeping the right sides together. Pin the two pieces together.

  3. 3

    Cut a U shape in the centre top of your fabric. The U shape should measure 8 inches wide and 12 inches long. This will serve as the crotch of your trousers.

  4. 4

    Thread your needle and stitch both fabric pieces together along the crotch area. Follow the U shape while sewing the fabric.

  5. 5

    Fold the raw edge at the side and bottom edges of the fabric at about 1/2 inch toward its wrong side. Press the fold with your iron and do another ½-inch fold. Press both folds with your iron and start stitching the edge of the folds to seal them. Repeat the same step to create the casing for the back side of your trousers.

  6. 6

    Cut your ribbon in half. Locate the end of one piece and attach a safety pin. Pull through the trousers' front casing and pull your other ribbon through the casing at the back.
