Description

The pants are Burda 118 drawstring pants made from Organic Cotton Double Gauze from Fabric Treasury on etsy. Originally I dyed them in alkanet but they were just a bit too beige so I overdyed them in the Quebracho Rojo. The original undyed double gauze was quite sheer looking, but once dyed nice and opaque. These are even more comfy than my yoga pants- I need to make more!I cut these in a size 40 and decided to leave off the welt pockets in the back- which I wouldn’t use- as well as altering the waistband. I had an old skirt that I reused to make a fold over band instead of the drawstring. I love the shape of these pockets- It’s why I chose the pattern! These were pretty easy to make, the only thing I’ll alter next time is to add more length. These are great for summer rolled up- which is how I envisioned them, but they’re slightly short when unrolled.

    the colour is great! I had a look at this pattern but I thought there was too much fabric in the hip area if there is an elastic waistband. Maybe I was wrong…yours look just right! Oh, and what a pretty shirt you’ve got…all perfect ;))
