These are my favortie wrap pants I've made so far! Made with light weight denim and batik patchwork strips. I used Grosgrain ribbon for the ties. They are so light and comfy and even though they are long they are still cool enough to wear on hot days. Sorry for the less than fab pics. The hubby couldn't remove his fanny from the couch to take better ones.

Also excuse the silly look, I think I was in the middle of saying something when he snapped  Roll Eyes




One leg is not shorter than the other, I was standing kind of funny.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking and Peace!

they look SUPREMELY comfy, and i love the patchwork on the back.

happy lounging in those babies, but they are totally stylish enough for any occasion!

I love these!  I made some of these out of light weight denim, but the results were not nearly as cool.  Excellent job!

Thanks all!  Grin I got lots of compliments on them as I wore them out and about. There is patchwork on all 4 sides so that even if I wrap them the other way patchwork will still show.

How do wrap pants work exactly? They look great, I just can't work out how you are supposed to tie them!

Hahah - the comment about your husband not moving his fanny off the couch Tongue well, in Australia and England, fanny refers to..girly bits..as opposed to a bum.
so for a minute I was going :O at that comment, then I worked it out.

OOOPS!! I forgot fanny doesn't mean the same thing everywhere!  Roll Eyes
I meant his rear end!!  Wink As he does not have girly bits  Grin
