Ha! what a day. It’s been raining here for 13 days. Lots of rain. So much that I had to go out in the garden and move leaves to allow water to flow past my porch. These pics, well, wet shirt and hair, definitely no makeup.
But I really have had fun with this project. I’ve been scoping sarouel pants for some time, because they’re a bit funky and look so comfortable. Plus, my son wants some!
Could not find a pattern (do you have one?), so I worked with some things I found on Pinterest (a link here).
Here’s my first draft, using a tie-dye rayon/lycra knit I was willing to sacrifice. The base pattern is my version of Love Notions Sabrina Slims, because I wanted the pants to be at my natural waist, not low-rise hip-hop:
My pants, with no waistband, were awful! I had an udder at the crotch and sufficient room in the front and back for a hand of bananas. That’s about as nicely as I can describe it 🙂
So, I added the waistband and pared away the crotch excess as needed. I hope I can remember the changes, because these are the most comfortable pants I’ve ever made!!
I’m wearing them now, I wore them out to the market, I might not take them off.
Awesome! Ciao – Coco
