Hi to all! Well, I was kind of saving these pants for Jungle January…but just can’t do it. I need to get back to blogging, it’s Sewing Month, and I’ve been living in my Pattern Emporium Harem pants since my surgery in August. So here’s the pair no one has seen.
I am in love love love with this pattern. My original post, with lots of chat about the pattern options and what I ended up sewing, is here – two pairs, both in ITY knit.
So this makes 4 pairs! All but the black have a plain hem…the black has a cuff, because I hemmed them too short and needed to add length. And I love them with the cuff. Kind of sexy. Maybe I should add cuffs to this latest pair!

The fabric is a heat-crinkled ITY from Fabric Mart, and it’s definitely not an everyday ITY. At first it seemed somewhat stiff and weird. But it softened up in the laundry, so I kept it. I’m glad I did. Sometimes it pays to be patient and see what happens.
I even managed to keep the animals pretty much under control, so I don’t have a blaring target in the wrong places!
