Description

My 3rd pants! I think I’m beginning to get the hang of this (I hope).

I’ve always wanted floral pants, so when my mom gave me this fabric from her stash, I knew destiny was knocking on my door. I also found a matching vintage button from a stash of buttons her friend gifted to me, so yay! Come on in, destiny in floral pants!

I eliminated the pockets, and modified the Ellen pattern so that the legs taper down… I am thinking of taking in the sides a bit more (maybe on my next pair)… what do you think?

      Oh I’m so sorry for my late reply :( Thank you for your kind words! The blouse was purchased from a shop— I really like it a lot too, and plan to make one with that much drama in the sleeves soon :D
