Gorgeous, Slouchy Crossover Pants and Shorts on Etsy

I'm not shopping right now (repeating for conviction: I am not shopping right now!), but I spotted these cool pants and had to share them with you. From the photos, they look like the perfect drapey trousers for Fall. Not too baggy, not too thin, fluid and not crinkly. I emailed the seller for a little reconnaissance, and she replied quickly and clearly. 

#1 comes in many colors.  
#2 is a great charcoal stripe
#3 comes in heather gray, which really helps make the draping stand out. 

The downside is that the seller is in China, but she has completely 100% positive feedback through over 400 transactions. Anyone feel like venturing out? :)

    They look really interesting!! I might have to try making something similar myself. They are like a trousered version of fishermans pants!

    Dang it Rae - you're killing me here!

    Rae!  I have been wanting a pair of cross over trousers.  Feedback is excellent and I love the other garments as well.  So tempted!

    Rae, I have been watching this seller too -- I posted a leather trimmed blazer from her shop a while back.

    Hey, I've actually bought stuff from her!  Ella Lai, right?  I can say her stuff is really great.  The only thing I would say is if you are getting pants and you send measurements like your waist and hips, also send your thigh and calve measurements.  I bought some wool pants with leather waistband and they were beautiful, but the calve was just a little tight.  I don't even have large calves, I think they are just cut more so for Asian bodies.  I had great experiences with her, bought 2 times!

    Wow - that second pinstripe pair of trousers are fabulous.

    Oh, thanks Rae -- I have been going back and forth on ordering, and if you vouch for her then I will certainly be placing an order!

    Wow, those are gorgeous! And how amazing that Rae (Raisin) can actually vouch for the seller!! Isn't YLF fab?? 

    I am seriously tempted as well. They look fantastic.

    Rae you temptress!

    Rae, thank you for your review and tips! Seriously thinking about some trousers for Fall. I have a long SYC road ahead of me to consider it, though!

    Interesting, and based on the reviews, sounds like good quality.  Gotta love etsy  :)

    LOVE!  I may be ordering down the road...

    Those are really well done crossovers. $84 is a good price. I have to think about this.

    I've had good luck with China so far, knock wood.

    I've been drooling over Ella Lai for a while too!  I love the asymmetry of those trousers -- if you get them you must tell us about your thoughts on the experience and the quality.  YLFers tend to be more discriminating as to construction and fabric quality, which would mean more than Etsy reviewers I don't know.
