- modified -
the pictures are gone, and they've been showing up weirdly since my domain host has gone over to the dark side, so I've removed the image link. Sorry. Sad


I'm leaving my posts in to get the entire thing in context anyways, since there's a nice explanatory pic on the second page by another kind craftster member Smiley


-old post-
Or whatchamacallem.

Tie em in the front, tie em in the back.. the sides are open. Extremely simple since all four pieces of half-leg are the same shape and size.


Unfortunantly I didn't think of taking photos where you can actually see the "opening" bit properly. They're supposed to go all around, so the opening is in the front and in the back with a lot of overlapping in between, but I made them smaller so they only overlap a little bit. Really comfy.

They're a perfect length atm, only problem is that I haven't hemmed them yet o_O


(I gave "verbal" instructions further down here, and Fidget kindly posted a good drawing of how they're made on 2nd page, though with two pieces rather than four like I did)

Those look great!  About 15 years ago I bought a pair at a Renn Fest for $20 -- in hot pink ha-cha-cha-chaaah!  You know how all those Renn folk walked around in hot pink britches.  Roll Eyes  Wink

Thank you Grin
These were extremely cheap, I got the fabric for about $4 per yard (and fabric tends to be really expensive here for some reason, so that was amazing)
I have no idea what Renn Fest is Grin *blames it on the being foreign bit*

Well, I did have a pattern, but then I abandoned it... what I did was that I took a pair of "bigger" pants that I already have, and folded in half (giving me the view of only one leg), so I'd be allowed to "pull out" the crotch bit for that pants shape... I drew the crotch bit from my pants (though maybe you want to cut that bit out more for more room, 'cause you don't get a perfect crotch template), plus a short way down the legs inner side (and up to the waist in the other direction). I might have added a bit on the top, to allow for more movement - it can always be hemmed down
The waist length of ONE of the four pieces is my entire waist circumference / 2 (though I subtracted a couple of centimeters more as well..).

The "outer" side is completely straight, so I just took the length from my waist and down to the floor for that bit, and completed the inner bit of the leg to match.

Made four bits, (two reverse) and then attached them first leg by leg, than attached the two resulting pieces in the crotch area. (hemmed the sides after this..) Made two bands of my waist circumference +60, and sowed onto the top of both pant-tops.

Done. Smiley Was that understandable at all?

Hehe thanks.. the walls are brighter IRL. Personally I wish the dude my lovey and I bought the appartment from hadn't decided to go with orange wallpaper in the livingroom.. Wink I don't like orange. But I have to admit it's a bit refreshing all the same... luckily enough the bedroom and the hallway are cold green, so it balances out the livingroom Wink

Totally my fault!! Sorry for not being clear.  Renn Fest was short hand for Renaissance Festival. 

If I remember correctly, the pants I had were made of two pieces of material with just a seam in the crotch.  There was a draw string on the front piece and one on the back piece.  Tie the back part around your waist, then lift up the front and tie it in the back and now you're ready for your day.   Grin
