I really liked how it turned out....

That is a really cool way to get rid of pants that you can't use anymore - great idea!  Cheesy

ooh, interesting! have to see it on for full effect though, any chance of action shots? i'd so love to see some details on the assembly too, up the arms and in the back and such.

we used to wear old tights as tops way back in the day. when the toes would get holey we'd cut off the feet and a hole in the crotch and voila, long sleeved boobie holding-up shirts! they were actually really comfy and warm.

i ended up making it a bit snug on me ..I forgot to leave extra room around the back and chest..live and learn... but when a smaller person happens along here I will post some action shots.. Tongue

Construction:
 
 A - Cut off the legs of the pants you want. I used bell bottom  pants to get bell sleeves

Open the legs up and sew them together length wise so you have a long strip...

B - then find your middle of the strip and on one end cut out the yoke
and sew around yoke edge

C -  Cut out desired space for arms ..remember to messure where the arm pit and sides will be to have enough room..( I messured around the top of the arm and then left a few extra inches for room) then sew up arms and sides..

I added some fabric around the neck / yoke to give some colour...

Hope this helps you all... Wink

very cool! i think i'll try it with a pair of stretchy pants first in case i don't get the fit right too, that way it'll fit(ish) no matter what i mess up. heh.
