First, there were SEVENTY t-shirts in the duvet cover. And, quickly, rushing, but as promised, here are the pants I made:
Picture not the best, but you can see the fullness of the leg, the nice drape. I used leftover sashing from the duvet cover to make the tie.
My one mistake was to sew the casing closed prior to making the buttonholes. Next time: make buttonholes first! Then sew casing shut.
And, BTW, I had a Linen Bonanza at my favorite thrift store a couple of days ago. This top was found then.
those pants look sooooo comfy.
great pants–you look ready for the tropics! Cool sandals, too
the pants ARE comfy… the sandals are Teva’s – good when wet or dry!

thanks, Saskia! this is all coming out of the Boro class… a new willingness to invest some time and energy (but not much money) to create wearable clothing that I LIKE (and that aren’t pajamas!!)
