Those pants are awesome, and so is the tute.  I just wonder if I can find a t-shirt big enough to cover my butt.........lol Cheesy

Thanks for all the comments, guys! 

kitty1256 - I would say the pants were about a small, but I took fairly large seams.

organizedchaos - The tutorial I followed was here: http://community.livejournal.com/t_shirt_surgery/3597625.html

ViolentViolet - I'm not terribly adept at sewing, so I'm not sure that I can help with your question, but on my pants the seams are down the outside of the legs and not down the inside.  The u part where the sleeves were is cut and sewn together for the crotch of the pants.  Does that make any sense or address your question?

Alphaflutterby and modpodge - Nice job!  Modpodge - Good choice on the t-shirt, that's hot!

From the book Godless:

Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

ok, so im making these right now, but im hand sewing, so ive still got another night or two before ill have pics Wink ive got the legs sewn up though, and i think they will turn out great! a few tips im learning! :

to make sure the shirt will cover your tush, just hold it up, like when you hold a shirt to your front? only do it on your bum, and if it comes aroudn the side of your legs, its big enough!

also, this may make it more difficult to adjust, but so that my screen print wasnt cut in half, i cut up the sides of the shirt, under the arm.  then the leg sews up between the legs, but my screen print isnt cut in half, which i wanted. 

ill be sure to post pics when im done!
