i made pants again!
they're basically some sort of mock up for "real" pants i've had in my mind for quite some time.
they will be made of jeans fabric and have big pockets above the pleats on the side.
for now, i'm very happy with the construction. i made the pattern myself and it consists of just one part. plus 3 rectangles for cuffs (?) and waistband.
the cuffs (?) make the pants wide in the legs without touching the floor AND i can wear them shorter if i move the cuff-things up to my knees
there's no seams on the inside of the legs, i think that's great for pyjama pants.
and the're wide, but because of the pleated part, the usual bulk of fabric is NOT between the bed and my hips when i watch tv/want to sleep
the "excuse the dirty mirror and the crappy pictures in general … i was home alone" shot
and worn as 3/4 length pants

the pattern is kitschy, but i love that fabric. it's so soft and everything … and it was just 2€ per metre
thank you for looking,
i'd love to hear what you think about this project
a crafty new year to all of you!
