Good evening! Just wanted to show off the super-comfy pants I made last weekend. Maybe they're not wide enough to be called gauchos, but eh! Here they are:



They're made from a 4XL men's t shirt that I got at Wal-mart for about $6.  The ribbon (drawstring) is also from Wal-mart... It's pink with green polka-dots if you can't see from the pictures. Wink

I used this tutorial: http://community.livejournal.com/t_shirt_surgery/3929025.html?#cutid1:t-shirt%20pants  and I can recommend it. Very easy to follow.

Smiley What do you think?

Whudda thunk that you could make pants from a tshirt!  I love this idea a lot--hubby has lots of XL tshirts that he doesn't wear anymore! Cute on you and fun colors, too!  Thanks for the link--it really explained how to do it! Can't wait to post mine!!
