Cropped Pants


About Exact Color Matches

As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches. Making an exact color match can therefore present challenges at times. Although my two fabric weights may have been dyed at the same time, they will emerge from the dye bath with slightly different shading. Often these differences are very subtle and though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they will still look great together.

When ordering items you plan to wear together, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. Often I can match garments using extra yardage I include in each dye lot. If fabric is available, I can cut and sew a matching item to complete your outfit. Of course that takes extra time. I will let you know if making your matched set will take extra time and when to expect delivery if part of it must be specially cut and sewn.

If you are comfortable with garment colors that have similar shades but differing values, please be sure to check the "No Thanks" box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

Easy, Eco-Friendly Care

Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron.
  6. When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.

Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

    I enjoy the cut of these pants for comfort and ease of movement. They look cute with any blouse and summer shoes. The fabric is breathable and soft. I have three pairs! They are my favorite summer pants!

  2. comfortable and stylish 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2017

    This spring I purchased a pair of Sympatico cropped pants in deep ocean blue. This was not my first piece of Sympatico clothing. I already have three tuxedo tops and other pieces of clothing that are perfect for my taste, body type and activities. As with the other Sympatico pieces of clothing in my closet, the cropped pants fit perfect. I am 5'4" and weight 114, with slim hips but a wide waist. The elastic at the waist of the pants is not too tight or uncomfortable but securely fixes the pants at my natural waist. The cloth is soft and drapes appropriately over my hips and washes well. I live in northern New Mexico now but moved here recently from humid Wisconsin where I wore Sympatico clothing during hot humid summers in comfort and style. I appreciate my Sympatico clothes just as much in the dry climate of the Southwest and expect them to be part of my daily wear for work, shopping, pilates class and group mediation. Thanks Sympatico!

    I love these cropped pants--perfect fit, very comfortable, wonderful breathable fabric that hangs well, great color that goes with just about everything. I also appreciate the rapid delivery through USPS--pants arrived just two days after I ordered them.

    I love Sympatico clothes..and found the pants style not comfortable. I think it was the tapered effect. I wish that another style was available. thanks

    I love my Sympatico cropped pants and tops. They are so comfortable and look nice on my mature body!! It is such a pleasure to wear these clothes. They are simple and stylish! It is wonderful dealing with the folks at Sympatico. THANK YOU.


Matching lightweight tops with midweight pants or skirts

Midweight and lightweight fabrics vary subtly in how they take dye. Even though your outfit may be from the same dye bath, one piece may be darker than the other.

If you prefer an exact match with no variations in color values, order the midweight for both garments.
