I came home from work with an urge to sew something.. a tutorial on turning large unused t-shirts into comfy lounge pants caught my eye and here they are!! This project did not take very long at all.. two hours at most. The next time around I will cut the front fabric shorter so the crotch doesn't hang down so low.

They didn't agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.

Can I ask what size shirt you started out with and what size the lounge pants ended up being??

Thanks!! They are really comfy. I'm still wearing them haha
I started out with a LG tee and they ended up being size 5/7.

Hi! I have made a tute on how to make lounge pants WITHOUT cutting through the image. There's just one difference: Cut up the SIDES of the shirt instead of the middle! Here's my tutorial if that doesn't make enough sense (I can't explain things in one sentence):

You can also find it on cut out and keep.
