I know this may look ridiculous, but I've been thinking about pants and shorts at the same time...
So here's what I came up with...and I'd like to challenge you to see if you'd be able to come up with a strategy that would work to make these.

They can be drawstring, elastic, whatever, probably best worn above the knees so they dont fall down, although they'd look really good above the knees, and the shorts would be matching, the same pair of jeans that the bottom comes from.  The picture on the right is a drawing I did a while back that I found that uses the same concept.

SO if you feel compelled, I will try it too, see how many different working patterns we can get of these funky pants shorts combo!!

That looks like such a fun idea!  But heavens, I don't think I have the thighs for it Tongue

I love those kinds of "leggings" under above-the-knee skirts.  Have you seen the felt ones with emroidery?  There are also fun ones made of more drapey material, and even some bell-bottom-shaped ones made out of a shell-colored mohair and tied above the knee with a pretty ribbon.  But I never thought of putting them with shorts, or with making them of matching material.  If you made them from jeans, they would look really hot with fishnets underneath.  I may have to try this after all and see what I can do...

Sweet! Yea, fishnets would be awesome!  I've seen alot of the fur ones on e-bay and in some Japanese manga comic books, but they're usually worn with skirts Smiley.  I have to find a pair of jeans first though before I begin Smiley

I think I'll try this too, when I find my box of old jeans.  My shorts would be slightly longer than in the picture though, so I can show them off at school

This looks really intriguing!  So...the shorts are typically denim...and the 'leggings' are either denim, or anything you want?  I'll bet you'll have tons more joiners if you post your progress - me, for instance!  Wink

Tayo, but I probably wont be able to "model" them, just take a picture...that's a good piece of advice, thanks.

I love the idea... if you made the legs attach around your thighs with snaps or buttons, like cuffs sort of, that would be really cool. You should...make a website dedicated to those things... and sell them...

you'd get rich. But first, buy a patent.
