cotton pants

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.

    thanks Grace. I really love these pants… they are not even all that flattering. I just like them. My husband took the picture.

    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!!)
