George, South Af...
I saw this beautiful floral material sometime ago… and I often thought what can I make with this?? I liked the material so much! At first, my idea was for a wide scarf. But then it hit me: pants!! Out came the trusty NewLook 6948 pattern, and here it is! I’ve been hearing it non-stop ever since.. it is super super comfortable and cool. The material feels like a cotton blend (maybe with chiffon, its so soft :) I modified the pattern slightly by adding elastic to the bottom hems and a fold-over knit instead of a drawstring.
