Note: I've sewn for years, but that was when I was like 11 and was working with my mom or grandmother. This is actually my first completed project on my own.


So my mom decided that she was going to give a bunch of her old clothes to good will. Me being the crafter that I am decided to talk her into letting me choose what I wanted to keep. This is my first recon of many that will be taking place over the summer.

Pattern: I just kinda winged it, and changed my vision as I went along.. It originally was going to be a pencil skirt. Lol



After: (ignore how bad/fat/ugly I look.. it was late)
front


back


Before: I had already cut the legs before I remembered to take a before shot.




The fabric has a really nice pattern to it, but these photos were taken with a cellphone by my mom who apparently has issues holding the phone still enough.

I'll get some better shots with a real camera when I have time.

Let me know what you think.


Edited because the pants looked funny on the front page. ^.^'

Very cute! For your first solo sewing project, it's fantastic! I'm totally afraid of ruffles and have been avoiding them. Perhaps I should be brave and give it a go. I look forward to your other recons!

Thanks! The ruffles weren't so bad after a while, although i did get mad during the gathering part and threw the ruffles across the room after the thread broke for the 100th time.
