I have made a couple pair of these.  Some girls at my church wanted me to show them how.  We got together one afternoon and made a couple pair.  I forgot to take my camera that day though.  We even made some out of men's polo shirts.  They turned out pretty cute, but we needed a little bigger shirts.  This is the pair that I made for my daughter.  I made a waistband casing out of some fabric I had.  I just put some wide elastic in the casing then. It took no time at all. 

Here she is modeling my grocery bag I made as seen here:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0

here is another shot of the waistband.  Sorry about the camera strap, but the camera died and this is the only shot I got.

They look great, and they make your butt look great too!  I say this because I know that type of pants can really do the opposite on some people.  Smiley

They look so comfy.

Thank you for the link to the tutorial!! I finally completed my pants. (First recon project too!) It took awhile because I had to hand sew everything, but otherwise the tutorial was really easy to follow.

The pants are from a green size medium t-shirt with a single breast pocket on the right-hand side, and a gray shirt.  I thought the pocket was really nifty to have for pants. I think it would have looked better if the pocket were in the back, but there was only one pocket, and I thought it would have looked even funnier if there was only one pocket on my butt.  Tongue
