All About the Marett Pants

Fabric resources, fitting details, and tutorials to help you build your skills.

Build Your Wardrobe with the Marett Pants

Bring a little 70s glam into your day-to-day with these palazzo-inspired pants. The Marett pants hit at the natural waist, with a loose fit throughout the hips and legs. They close with a center back invisible zip, and deep front pleats beg for a flowy, drapey fabric, like rayon or crepe. And yes, they have pockets.

These pants are subtly sexy and perfect for a rich jewel tone or a feminine print or go for a sleek monochromatic look, paired with this month’s Angela bodysuit.

Krystal is wearing size 10 Marett pants with 5 1/2” added to the length and 3/4” added to the hip. Her measurements are 37”, 31”, 41” and she is 5’9”. The pants were lengthened to accommodate her height in addition to 4” heels for the photo shoot.
