Jesllo, I'm intriqued by the elastic in the back, I can't quite see how it would go (forgive me, its only 6am!)

ok, I found a pair of the Barbie wrap pants.  The elastic is in the waist on the under wrap.  Instead of using ribbon, string, whatever, and tying it up in the back, it's elastic, with a fastener (snap in this case).  So, the fabric would have to be wide enough to go all the way around the waist, and having some gather to it would help.  Don't know which way I'm gonna try doing it for myself, yet.  I'm still trying to get my craft room put back together.  I can almost get to my fabric stash.  When I find the batteries for the camera, I'll post a pic of the Barbie pants so you can see how they work.

Here's some pics of the Barbie wrap pants.
This is the pants laid out flat. The elastic and snap are on the left side, the ribbon is on the right.

This is the elastic side laid out flat.

This is the ribbon side.

Here's Barbie putting the pants on.  The elastic side wraps around the front and snaps in the back.

The ribbon side wraps around from the back and ties into a bow in the front.

Barbie modeling them.

I want to say that your pants look great and I love the barbie wrap pants, they're the best! My family and I joke about not needing enemies when you have family, sometimes they just say the most wonderful and loving things (please note the sarcasm). I sure hope you had a good time. Smiley

And yay for freecycle! I've got some material off of their a couple times and two sewing machines, woot!

I think the elastic would make it a more graceful way of dressing.  you could just run the elastic through the casing on the under layer. Then you could just pull that layer on and tie the front layer.  No more worry about what to do in those tiny bathroom stalls.  Or worrying about the back ties falling in the toilet.  (almost happened to me!!!)  I think that is a great idea!

I've been toying with the idea of part elastication on the back piece now so there's less gaping on the back  Smiley I might have a play around today and see what occurs

The original pants are lovely. Very summery. And the funny thing is - My mom made me the very same Barbie pants, maybe 33 or 34 years ago!! Too funny! When I saw the original pants I immediately recognized them! But my Barbie's pants were made from doubleknit polyester...ew... gotta love the '70's...
