Oh my gosh those are So Cute!  I'd love a tutorial, i've got about 4 of these skirts laying around that I never seem to wear anymore, but a girl can never have enough lounge pants!

hah! I guess I really have to follow through with this one ;-P

Thanks loves! I'm a leeetle busy at the moment, vending at two festivals this weekend, another festival the next Sunday, and a farmers market the Sunday after. Then I don't think I have a fair until the end of November... so I'll have some time for procrastination (more sewing) :-D

psssh the "professional seamstresses" must know nothing because these are amazing.

so i think the bum area is great, i love lounge pants but never wear them out because i always feel that i look like im wearing pajamas. these look so great and i could totally wear them around town while being super comfy!

whenever you get that tutorial up im totally down to make these!

The reason the "experts" say it can't be done is because it can't be done very well with a skirt of your own that actually fits you. You need a bunch of extra fabric for the crotch area or the pants will be very tight across the bum and pull into folds across the front. Not to mention ride up your crotch, not comfy. You *can* do it with a skirt that's too big for you, just like making a denim skirt from a pair of jeans, those have to be loose to work out well too.
Do up the tute if you have the time and inclination, this is not an impossible sewing craft and I know I'm not the only one who sees skirts & wishes they were pants Smiley.

Good to know! If that's the case then the skirt I have set aside will work fine. It's at least 2 if not 3 sizes bigger than I wear. Smiley
