Once upon a time I owned a pair of pants so great, I named them the “hot ass pants”. As the years went by the pants wore threadbare and the sad day came when they were retired. Not willing to discard them they lingered in the projects cupboard until the day arrived that I would use them to create a pattern for Hot ass clones.
It’s so hot here in Australia right now, and while I’ve never considered my legs to be shorts-worthy, I wanted to give the hot ass pattern a try and I could not be more thrilled with the results. I think they just got hotter!
