Drop Crotch Woes

Lately I’ve been wanting to dress more casually, looking to drape some loose shirts and things across my body, ornamented with lots and lots of gold chain necklaces and bangles. (Inspired mostly by Lulu, what can I say.) Jeans are past their prime for me, and by that I mean: I own one pair of jeans that is worn out in the knees, and I’m tired of wearing them. But sometimes you just wanna wear pants! Know what I’m saying?

Here is my solution! Drop crotch pants.

…Or so I thought. I don’t think they’re going to work for me. There’s something painfully trendy about these pants, but even so, I’m not one to shy away from trends when they take my fancy. The thing about these pants is: you can’t really wear them if you have short short legs. No, seriously. I’m 5′2″, and that’s because my legs are short. The rest of me is fine, it’s the legs that are outstandingly lacking in height. I fear that if I donned a pair of these extremely comfy-looking drop crotch pants, I’d end up looking like I had no legs at all. Maybe if I hiked them way up my waist?  …But then the drop would fit into my normal crotch. Alas! What are short people to do?

I’ve pondered the possibilities, and the only solution I can come up with is to make my own pair of drop crotchers, a la Camille. Maybe I could design them to have a very minimal drop in the crotch, so as to leave most of my legs still visible and identifiable as, well… legs? It might create an effective illusion, and a viable solution.

What do you guys think? Drop crotch, short people, ill-advised sewing adventures… opinions? Warnings? I accept them all with enthusiasm!

    Hmmm… I don’t know. I don’t particularly like drop crotch pants. That being said I am guilty of wearing massive track pants with a crotch down to my knees when slumming around the house…. But that’s different right?

    Haha, totally different! I dunno they just look so comfortable to me. And kind of edgy in a weird way. Who knows!
