Great tut and thanks for sharing!  Smiley

So, tonight I went ahead and took an old nightgown and tried the same technique to preserve the image on the front. Only.... when I sewed all of the seams up, I realized I'd made a HUGE error... I can't even get the pants on past my thighs, the waist is that tiny. >.<
Unless.. you have any ideas or tips for what I can do to increase the waist/hip size so I can actually get the pants on?
I know this is after the fact, but was the nightgown made from a stretch knit?  If not, maybe the fabric didn't have enough give to it?  Maybe try making the waistband from a different t-shirt that has some stretch to it.  Good luck.  Smiley

It's 100% cotton, but it's not really stretchy.. I've decided to just cut out the image, add strips along the legs, and replace the image with patches or pockets or something. Smiley

You could have added a strip of fabric on the INSIDE where you've already sewn.. it's what I would do.

However, I see that wouldn't make the waistline bigger. This technique is to keep the image intact, but I can see how that would have issues with the waistline. I guess cutting out the image would be the best thing to do, or just using the original tute.

Ah, yeah, but it would have meant adding a strip to the inner thigh area and I thought that would have looked funny... But.. argh... I could have used the fabric from the sleeves to match........  Undecided The only problem is that they're ankle-length pants rather than capris/gauchos, so I might have run out of sleeve material for the legs.

OH WELL!

You're welcome Miss World ^^

For anyone who made a pair of pants out of a non stretchy material (such as the second pair that I posted pics of) you may want to add a sorta diamond shape piece of fabric at the crotch, so it doesn't rip. Or, add a strip of fabric running along the inner seam, if you want looser pants. I don't necessairly like pants that are too tight.

Ooh, I love how the slope of the former sleeve makes a perfect crotch; I may have to try this!

Like I said, if you work with a non-stretch fabric, you may want to add some fabric there. My awesomest pants ripped in the crotch and I ended up just adding fabric to the shape of the hole, NOT fun to do.

ohhh T.T you're lucky. I don't know of any thrift stores anywhere near here. In fact, I'm in a crafting dead zone.

Thanks so much for this tute. I just whipped up a pair from an old discard shirt and it was the easiest, cutest project ever! Love, love you for this!  Grin
