thanks to a girls' craft night at church and some margot-daddy-time, i was able to make all three pairs in one evening. i used these two tutorials and fabric from thrift store t-shirts.
the kitty fabric may be my favorite. i need to think of some other projects to use this for.
making pants was surprisingly easy. each pair took only two fabric pieces and four seams. i used the existing seam at the bottom of the t-shirts as the bottom hem of the pant legs, saving two seams. after some trial and error on the first pair, i think i made the last two pairs in twenty minutes apiece.
i'm going to have to restrain myself from making an excessive number of pants. as it combines two of my favorite things--thrift storing and making things--it's going to be difficult.
