I've taken a brief hiatus from sewing, cause I'm poor and a college student...

Okay, I lie! I've taken up another hobby that eats up some monies - motorcycling!
This summer, my boyfriend's convincing me to work on making pants, and hopefully getting used to making them to the point that they're fashionable and practical on a bike!

Right now, I'm working on the fashionable / learning how to MAKE pants part:


I can do zippers. Zippers on the crotch? Not too sure...But I can do some corset-tying!
Also, I like pink, but I don't like feeling too girly. Raw edges, it is!

Oh, I found out that having that line of pink on the inner thigh doesn't allow for much movement at the crotch, since it's not stretch denim.... Oops!

I love the corseting thing so much, I wanted to extend it further! (Though I didn't like it at the crotch, so I also tried to change it up. Apparently, my Game of Thrones kick shows in this pair)

And the side! (oooh, fancy camera angles, ha!)

And...me playing around on my bike:

I love swaps/personal swaps (I knit/crochet).

it is better to destroy, than to create what is meaningless.

ha, thanks!
admittedly, the pink stripes in the first pair is mostly cause I didn't realize how much give we need for movement when we wear pants =X

I modify my own pants to be practical for protection. An option, you could try is using or making legging and buying the pads that go into the fancy, expensive pants and sewing pockets for the pads onto the leggings. I also lined a pair of my favorite jeans with kevlar knit, that was arm guard for industrial workers. It seems very similiar to the kevlar fabric that companies use to line the kevlar jeans. I love what you did with the pants.
