ohh yeah, those look like that because i used an old pair of pants from my hubby and i used the real cuffs from the original pants. It's more of a recon heheheh but hey, use what you have.
The old pair of pants was stained really bad from when we painted out appartment so i used the wrong side as the right side.


here it is turned inside out.

I'm making this:



Which is somewhat a leap of faith.  I'm preg., but we're not going to find out what it is.  I figure even if I don't end up needing it I can:
a.) save it for a future child of mine
b.) save it for a future child of someone else's
c.) give it to charity
d.) use it as a dust cloth
(Okay, so maybe d. was a joke  Wink )

I just bought the pattern today, though (20% off at the local variety store, no less!), so needless to say, I haven't gotten very far on it!

So I completely tore it apart... and recon'd it to make this: (Sorry if the pics look sheeny. It is made out of satin) Grrr! satin!

Okay, not to be snotty, but it looks like you put it in wrong.  Did you use an invisible zipper foot?  I've heard tell (on here, of course!) that you can put one in with a reg. zipper foot, but invisible zipper feet are so inexpensive and make it SO much easier. 

When put in properly, you shouldn't see the zipper at all, just the pull up at the top.  The zipper itself should just look like a seam.

What DQ said.......

The invisible zipper foot application makes it truly invisible...have no idea how to do it with a regular foot.
